Difference between MSA and Iraqi Arabic

Wasalam brother, generally speaking fus'ha Arabic differs from all the other Arabic languages. Every Arab country has their own different Arabic and accent, some more similar to fus'ha Arabic and others not so similar. Fus'ha Arabic is the universal Arabic language, so if you know how to speak it you would able to interact with many Arabs of different nationalities. However on the other hand there are many Arabs that don't speak fus'ha, all they know is the Arabic that's spoken in their country and they may find it difficult to understand fus'ha sometimes. I don't speak Iraqi so I can't tell you how similar the Iraqi Arabic is to Fus'ha Arabic, or how easy it is for them to understand fus'ha, you're going to have to ask an Iraqi that question.
