Keef 7alak?

When I was young, I used to translate some things word for word from english to arabic.

So, "al 7amdulilah" would become "good", as an answer to "how are you?".

One day I was feeling ill, a long time ago, and my uncle Bilal called. So he asks me,

"Keef 7alak?"

Since I was ill, I wanted something close to,

"Not really good."

So I answer,

"Mish il 7amdulilah."
