    It's got an 3ayn in it, if you know any native speakers of Arabic then ask them to teach you how to say it. Most non Arabs say it wrong (3ayn is not an easy letter to pronounce!) - otherwise pronounce it as detailed above in TariqIbnKhattab's post

    Here is a link with an audio clip of different ways to say Salam. Look under the 'Pronunciation' section and click 'audio clip.'

    welcome to the Ummah.

    Akhi=My Brother

    People will say it differently. You can search on YouTube and listen to how it is pronounced. Everyone has regional dialects and accents therefore it will sound differently from person:-

    1 Who lives in Yorkshire who will say (Aaaslaaamuew alaaaykum) They have the weirdest accents if I ever heard one. To

    2) A native Arab who will pronounce it correctly with tajweed.
