How to say 'Holy Spirit' in Aramaic.


Holy Spirit or Ghost in Syriac Aramaic is Rukha d'qudsha.


'Rukha' is spirit ,'d' is 'of' and 'qudsha' is holy.



Grammar gender of the Holy Spirit in Aramaic and other languages

The Holy Spirit in Syriac Aramaic is feminine and that is why images of the Holy Mother were used when speaking about the Spirit.The grammatical gender of the spirit varies according to the language.In Hebrew (רוּחַ, rūaḥ) it is both masculine and feminine while in Greek it is neutral (πνεῦμα, pneûma).


root of qudsha is qdsh-holiness



In Galilean Aramaic Holy Spirit is a little bit different-ruah qudsha



Now let's take a look at how it might be written in the Syriac Estrangelo and then the Aramaic block script (Hebrew).




Related question on quora.
Why is the Holy Spirit considered neuter or male when the word ruash (Hebrew and Aramaic for spirit) is feminine? 'Spirit' and Holy Spirit were copied from the original Hebrew and Aramaic words, which are feminine.

  1. No, my associate, so if i may, the first "D" in d'Qudsha Means "OF", and RUKHA is NOT translated as Spirit In Aramaic, but rather as "BREATH", and QUDSHA Means "HOLY", So RUKHA D'QUDSHA Is translated as BREATH "Or" WIND OF HOLINESS.

    the word "Spirit" comes from the latin word Spiritus (Aramaic is much older than latin), and although it is okay to say HOLY SPIRIT or SPIRIT (Either One Is Acceptable) in reference to GOD, since Aramaic reads from Right to Left, In Aramaic, RUKHA D'QUDSHA Is More Accurately Rendered as HOLY BREATH, BREATH OF HOLINESS, or It can also be translated as THE BREATH OF THE HOLY [ONE], as in --

    ergo, THE BREATH OR WIND OF THE HOLY ONE.
    ALAHA Means ABOVE THE FLAME,

    Shlama D'Ishoa Baŕai'ah Baŕnasha Baŕ D'Alaha w Gushma Miltha D'Alaha/The Peace Of The Life-Giver And The Creator (Jesus), The Son Of Man, The Son Of Him Who Rises Above The Flame, And The Bodily Manifestation Of God 😘

    Hope this was helpful, be good..

  2. Ishoa wasn't Alaha or creator not Aba. Ya need to go back to the roots. Hope you don't worship Ishoa. If you do you are an idolater.
