1. Hayawn or hayawan? Hayawan means animal.

2. Scarege? No "c" or "g" in Classic Arabic. Unless you mean "q" and "gh" as in qareeb and ghareeb.

3. nech? No "ch" in Classic Arabic.

4. Auuu Akh? I know Akh means brother.

5. and is Aimam the same as imam? No.

6. Ha? You mean letter haa'?

7. khumba? It doesn't sound Arabic.

I think it helps to know most Arabic words have trilateral roots as in:

SLM > salaam, saalim, islaam, silm, muslim, saleem, aslama, istaslama, sallama.

KTB > kitaab, kaatib, maktabah, maktoob, kataba, istaktaba, kaataba.

As you can see all root letters are visible in each word though it's not always the case. Usually when you know one word and its root, it's easy to guess the meaning of another word having the same root.

:) Salamun Alaikum brother, 

It appears that you & I are looking for the meaning of same word.

If you know what is meant by "Al-hayawan" do share that with me please. I am searching the difference between words "Al-hayat" & "Al-hayawan" to properly understand the following verse:

Surah Al-Ankaboot, Verse 64:

وَمَا هَٰذِهِ الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا لَهْوٌ وَلَعِبٌ وَإِنَّ الدَّارَ الْآخِرَةَ لَهِيَ الْحَيَوَانُ لَوْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُونَ

And this life of the world is nothing but a sport and a play; and as for the next abode, that most surely is the life-- did they but know!

(English - Shakir)

One of the meanings of the word Alhayawan is related to the life that is permanent and immortal while Alhayat is a life that can be ended by any means of causes . This shows the difference between this world and the hereafter in respect to its validity  . From another side , if you look at the music of the word Hayawan you will find a great and long sound which reflects the meaning of comfort ,tranquility and eternity while Alhayat has short and fast sound from the other side .

i hope it is useful .
