Does the word "ojala" come from Arabic? Ojala =allah=God. The Arabs conquered Spain for a long and brought Islam with them, so it makes sense.

Yes, but you need an accent to properly spell the word: Ojalá!

You might enjoy this song: Ojalá, que llueva cafe

The arabic expresion is law šá lláh wich means "si Dios quiere" (like the will of God)

In spanish there are lots of words from Arabic. Especifically in Spain we also share similar wasy of cooking (in some parts of Spain, only), names of cities, names of persons, etc.

They were here for 800 hundred years
