The Arabic tattoo of Busquets

When scoring his first official goal as Barcelona defensive midfielder and Spanish youth international Sergio Busquets (20) against Basel on Wednesday, Busquets celebrated this by kissing the tattoo on his left fore-arm and pointing to the sky.

Asked about it, Busquets explained the dedication to journalists after the match: "The phrase of the tattoo is a personal phrase and I especially dedicated the goal to my grandfather."

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that the tattoo is an Arabic phrase which means "A thing for you, the life in my country" and that only Busquets knows the meaning which will never be revealed.

The paper also explains that Busquets was very close to his maternal grandfather, who recently passed away and who used to take him to football training sessions and matches when he was young because his father, former Barcelona goalkeeper Carles Busquets, usually didn't have time to do that.

I think it's normal you don't understand it, FCBFan. It's apparently meant to be something cryptical.

“The phrase of the tattoo is a personal phrase and I especially dedicated the goal to my grandfather.”

Spanish media claim that the meaning of the phrase is “A thing for you, the life in my country” and that it has a personal meaning known only to Busquets.

arabic is such a meaningful language. you can find so much meaning in just a few words.

i would translate this as.

"something for you, the life of my country" or "the life of my homeland" or something like that.

The literal (word by word) translation while correct to some extent, the outcome is not! I would interpret it rather as follows:
"you will find life in my country”, or “life is exceptional in my country,” and referring to a 3rd person. The first word in the phrase does not necessarily mean “something” it can also be used to point to something of greatness!
