hubb.

“The arabic word for love, ‘hubb’ consists of letters ‘ha’ (ح) and ‘ba’ (ب ). When one says ‘Hubb’ the Ha comes from deep inside the throat, which almost chokes you (as love does) and when you end the word with Ba, the lips come together as if it were a kiss.”

This is literally one of my most favourite Arabic words.
