Oh yay, more bad Tibetan!

Most likely an attempt at this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Om_mani_padme_hum.

I'm pretty sure that's a map of Crete in Greek. (Dunno what the part on the left of the map is, though, although I'm pretty sure that's Greek, too).

Ενθύμιον Κρήτη :?: I'm not sure about the final letter in either word.
"Souvenir of Crete" or "remember Crete" or something like that. I have no idea about the grammar (or even whether the two words form a phrase), but I'm pretty sure that's the gist.

Yay, thanks for adding to my guess! :)

Ok, i know right off the bat that it's either a Salishan or Wakashan language. My money is on Salishan. Coville-Okanagan?

This thread is not a game though. It's for people who really are asking other people to identify a language because they don't know it.

In the game section of this forum you can find the game version of this thread.

It's Arabic, but I don't know what it means.

It isn't any American language, but an European language.

Having studied the language, I'm pretty sure it's Greek. The name on the left side is most probably ("Ἐνθύμιον") :?:, and it has the map of the island of "Κρήτη" (Crete).

Edit: I mistook the "νθ" with "λ" and there is no "ni" between the "mi" and the "iota". It's fixed now.

I can't make head or tails of this. The person who asked thinks it's Arabic, but I'm honestly not sure. My best guess is d-m-r-w-sh-n but I could be wrong.

I can't read it either, but it might just be gibberish intended to look like Arabic as a decoration and not say anything.
