An Arabic phrase meaning "my dear god." It is perhaps most commonly used by Muslim men as a warning of his presence when entering a room where there may be (non-related) Muslim women that are not properly covered in hijab. When in a Muslim household, it is customary to use this phrase. This practice is primarily common in Iran.
*knock on door* Ya allah.
