Ebtisam, you will get a headache this way, and you'll make very little progress. Just accept and remember the correct phrases. Analyse them later, after you learn more English. These are some correct phrases: Stores are often closed at the weekends. "New message arrived" means you can read your message. What is your name? Is it Jeffrey? Where are you from? Are you from a hot or cold country?

Because "message arrived" is result of act. And, "message arriving" is process of act in continuous tense.
