Usage examples of "umm".

Zahra was with the dressmaker being measured for her wedding clothes and Felicia was alone with Umm Faisal.

She was in her bedroom--she recognised that much at least--and Umm Faisal was hovering anxiously in the doorway, while Zahra and Raschid stood by her bed.

When she broke into an appalled apology Umm Faisal shook her head, plainly undisturbed.

Today Umm Faisal was dressed in Eastern costume, and Felicia suspected that the Western garb of the previous evening had been donned merely to put her at her ease.

She tried not to feel too dismayed when All brought the Mercedes to the door later that afternoon, wishing that Umm Faisal was going with her.

However, they were alone, Umm Faisal having excused herself, and Zahra seemed to be in the mood for confidences.

For the last few days the household had gone busily frantic over the arrangements for transporting Umm Faisal, Raschid, Zahra and herself, as well as the staff and everything that they would require, to the oasis for the duration of the birthday celebrations.

She toyed listlessly with her food while Umm Faisal and Zahra discussed the arrangements which had to be made for the trip to the oasis.

They were to travel in convoy, the Mercedes carrying Umm Faisal, Zahra and Felicia, going first, three other cars with the staff and the luggage following on behind.

Her original visit had had no time limit and it was generally accepted by Umm Faisal that she would stay with them until Faisal returned.

The visit was obviously a formal one, but when the other ladies rose to leave, Umm Faisal and Zahra were invited to stay on.

Somehow or other Felicia found herself travelling with Raschid, sitting in the front seat while Umm Faisal and Zahra occupied the back.

She would have to find Umm Faisal and Zahra and bid them goodbye, Felicia thought wretchedly when Nadia had gone.
