    Habibi Da very good song

    You want to listen to Arabic songs? Listen to HABIBI DA. It's by an Egyptian singer Hisham Abbas. All of my friends know this song, and they're not even learning Arabic. Of course, knowing me, you have to know this song...

    With all due respect, and running the risk of incurring a 50-PAR penalty, I think it's crap. :P However, the refrain is quite catchy, I admit.

    It's "Nari Narain!" translation: My fire, two fires.

    "Nar" means fire in Arabic. Add "-i" to the end and it means 'my fire.'
    -ayn is dual form, so "narayn" becomes "two fires."

    Mmm, it has grown on me, in fact. Now I kinda like it... The disco-beat-riff-thing is a bit tacky, though.

    If you listen to the song, you can hear where Hisham puts the stress.

    hmmm, Pravit, i agree about Nari Narayn...
    but in the song, nari naren is not arabic, he said it as an indian word in the urdu language and it means something like beauty or something...
