Meaning of an Arabic phrase

Kntlne

I have a book of Arabic stories for beginners and in it there is a reoccuring phrase in which I can mostly understand the single words but not their meaning when put together. The phrase is this: Fee yom mn al-ayam... Can anyone help me?

I think it means "time is expensive"

Hi Kntlne, The phrase essentially means "Once upon a time..." I hope that helps!

Kntlne
