    Well, there are مين and من

    The first one is "who" as you said (but only in dialect; in standard arabic, "who"="man".)

    And the second one is "from/ of" (both in dialect and standard arabic), and it can be combined with pronouns in some fixed verbal collocations [eg. 6alaba minni el mefta7 = he asked from me the key {he asked me (to give him back) the key.}]

    I'm not sure if this answers your question, but I hope it helps

    So That means مين with the longer ee sound is used as Who

    and with ths shorter ee sound من is used as from

    Well of course that helps citlalli Thanks

    But just for better under understanding.
    can you tell how would you say

    1. From where have you come?
    2. From the bottom of my heart


    Using من

    Using من
    Yes, exactly

    In Egyptian:

    1. جاي انت منين؟ (gayy) enta mneen? (but the 'gayy' is left out quite often; so they literally ask 'you from where?' only! lol) 'Mneen' is a contraction of 'men' (from) + 'feen' (where)

    2. من اسفل قلبي men asfal 2albi


    If you're interested in Egyptian dialect, this site may help you:

    Unfortunately I don't know similar pages for other dialects

    An Urdu Sher

    Girte hai sehsawar hi maidane jung me, o tifl kya gire ho ghutno ke bal chale...

    Translation

    Only those who ride horses fall in the battlefield, Those who crawl on knees like children can never fall.

    Vocabulary

    Sehsawar = horse rider
    maidane jung = Battle field
    tifl = Child
    Ghutno = Knees

    Meaning

    Those who face the life boldly, live with self respect and have the courage to take bold decisions may have to face failure sometimes But they are much better than those who live life like cowards, without any self respect and at the mercy of others.
