"HABIBI" Beanie in White Malevitch
حبيبي, written in arabic letters.
Habibi comes from the root word meaning “love.” Habib (masculine) or habiba (feminine) refers to a loved one. The final -i- is a possessive, it turns “love” into “my love.”
A famous Arabic word common between classical and spoken used in most of Arab countries.
Habibi has also been borrowed into Hebrew, complete with its Arabic pronunciation. It's likely that the adoption was in part due to an existing Hebrew word that is a very close relative, haviv, meaning pleasant or likeable.
Habibi is either a friend, a boy/girl friend, husband or wife, a relative, or a familiar person to you whom you like in different way. Even if you are calling a person of the same gender, you may use it.
