Random Quote: My son, when you pray, do it like a person who is bidding farewell to this world, and don�t assume you will have another chance to pray again. My son, know that a believer dies in between two deeds, one he offers for today, where he will get immediate blessings, and the second deed is what he offers towards the day of resurrection, and that is where he will gain the ultimate benefits - Muadh Ibn Jabal (radiAllahu anhu)

How do you guys look up Arabic words online? Especially looking for resources that might include technical dictionaries and the equivalent saying in Arabic for English expressions? For ex. what do you call the backing of an earing? or the lobster clasp? Or clues as opposed to hints? what are the names for different types of brushes? dust pin? bubble wrap? etc.

If you are doing advanced writing like that you would have some basic Arabic I think? If so, you should buy some real dictionaries/dictionary software. You could look up these words that you're looking for. And once you have some Arabic you should buy Arabic to Arabic dictionaries this would help when you're looking for nuances.
