Mabrook means congratulations, if I'm not mistaken....  and Mubarak comes from this word....

Actually, Mubarak means blessed.  So, when you hear, "Eid Mubarak" or "Ramadan Mubarak", they are saying to have a blessed Eid/Ramadan.
 
In response to someone saying it to you, state, "Allah yubarak feek" (May Allah bless it for you also).
 
 
Mabrouk does mean congratulations though, in Arabic.
 
Wa Salaam,

congradulations is a form of giving a blessing even in English surely? and even though the latin origin of con-grad-ulation is different from the origin of giving a blessing (is that more greek or german or what?)

Correct me if I'm wrong.

since it is used for Prayer during hearing Qur'an recital in the evening at Mosque; and is meaning rest; then could it also be applied to a Muslim in acts such as a Buddist monk might engage in with prayer beads while reciting sutras?

would be good idea to make this topic a religious dictionary area. Unless we already have one, cause there are loads of arabic words im sure we all get stuk on, and we could ask?
