Meaning of Arabic Proverbs/Sayings

I have a bit of a translation problem for you guys...
I thought it would be nice to know what some common Arabic phrases translate to in Coptic, because there were probably some that came from Coptic in the first place.
So here's my question:
How would you translate خللي اللي يقول يقول?
Something like ⲙⲁⲣⲉϥⲥⲁϫⲓ ̀ⲛϫⲉ ⲫⲏⲉⲧⲥⲁϫⲓ

Also people can use this topic to ask about other sayings if they want, I'll probably come back here to ask some more questions

ⲛⲟϥⲣⲓ Coptic Advocate,

Take a look at the following facebook group:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/752794721508864/

Heshmat Marzouk and George Sedhom had already translated a lot of the most commonly used Egyptian proverbs. For example:

...
And many more.

Skim through the old posts and photos, and you will find more proverbs already translated to Coptic. We probably need to collect and post them in a single place, maybe on the Coptic Wikipedia incubator project?

This facebook group is really good, thank you for showing me
I'll definitely find a lot of the Arabic phrases that I've been looking for there.

ⲙ̀ⲙⲟⲛ ϩ̀ⲗⲓ.

By the way, George Sedhom has a complete Coptic course on Youtube. In case you're interested, you can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLXmLW5uUnh2PP3f_NaqxF6VebB69sRjXR

Ⲛⲁⲙⲉⲛⲣⲓϯ @coptic_advocate_3 ⲛⲉⲙ @ⲡⲓⲙⲟⲩⲓ,
I would be very cautious trusting in those Facebook groups.. I know such people personally and while I can trust Mr George Sedhom 50% of the time (or perhaps a bit more) I do not trust Mr Heshmat Rezkallah one iota.. He makes everything up without any sources or even commonsense.. I am so sorry - no offence intended, but if you don't speak Arabic fluently you may not easily understand what I mean.. Please be very careful..
