Arabic translations

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for the Arabic translation of several short phrases - I want to use them in a story I'm writing. For my purposes, it's only important what they sound like, so a phonetic transcription or approximation would be perfect. Also, any Arabic dialect will work well! I have no preference. :-)

In my story, a man who doesn't speak Arabic is being addressed by an older woman, who is saying:

"Is that you?" (here, she believes she might be addressing her son)
"Who are you?"
"I need to go home, my sisters are waiting for me."

A somewhat formal register would be best, since the speaker is a well-bred, decorous and old-fashioned lady.

Thank you!
