Can Anyone Tell Me How to Say This in Moroccan Arabic?

Hello, I’m new to the forum.

I would like to know how to say the word “community” as in specifically a group of people who have a particular characteristic in common or what the closest translation to that word is in Moroccan Arabic.

If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

That’s a good question.

Community is typically translated in Modern Standard Arabic as mojtama3, which is the same word for society. However, I personally think that it does not accurately reflect the smaller scale and homogeneous nature of a community.
You might go with majmou3a, which means group. Not quite what you are looking for, but it’s probably the closest option in the Moroccan vernacular.

Interesting, thank you, much obliged.
