Possessive pronouns (my, your, his, her, our, their) are used to indicate ownership of something.

For example, in English, if a person wants to express his possession of a pen, he would say, “This pen is mine”.

In Arabic however “The Possessive Pronouns” are suffixes (one or two letters attached at the end of a word) attached to the nouns only e.g., if a person wants to say, “This pen is mine” or “This is my pen”, in Arabic” he would say: هذَا قَلَمِيْ.
