You mean that the words are Parsi? And there are no Arabian words?

Do you know Parsi language too?
Anyways, I'm curious whether the Parsi language belongs to Arabian languages or not?

In fact I don't know parsi but I know the sound of the language...I mean phonetics. I can find out the language not the meaning of the words.

Parsi and Arabic have the same letters but it write differently.

parsi is the language of Iran........Right??

Yep, as far as I know.
I've just looked up in the wiki page and saw that these countries speak Parsi (Persian): Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Bahrain. I would say these countries are the large part of an Arabian world.

I am from Egypt ,and of course I speak Arabic fluently. I can teach you Arabic and you teach me your English..We can enhance our languages together. I am just kidding...I am improving my English every time I come on the forum.
Thanks---You Egyptians speak Arabic funny---G instad of J. (I'm also just kidding, of course).

I think at least half the Arab countries have rigid censoring of movies and TV, so women dressed like those singers in the videos would not be allowed.

Parsi, of Farsi, is the language of the ancient Persians, now Iranians. It is an Indo-European language, closely related to the languges of India, and is more closely related to English than to Arabic. Arabic is a Semitic language, a smaller group of languages that also includes Hebrew, and originated in the Arabian penisula and the Horn of Africa region.

However, centuries ago when Islam was expanding its influence, Farsi adopted the Arabic alphabet to enable the Persians to study the Koran. So written Farsi looks like written Arabic. The languages are completely dissimilar, they just use the same alphabet
