Habibs

Habib (Arabic: حبيب‎, romanized: ḥabīb; Arabic pronunciation: [ħabiːb ]), sometimes written as Habeeb, is an Arabic masculine given name, occasional surname, and honorific, with the meaning “beloved”.[1][2]

The name is popular throughout the Muslim World, though particularly in the Middle East and Africa. In other countries, especially in Yemen and Southeast Asian countries such as Brunei, Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia, it is an honorific to address a Muslim scholar of Sayyid (a descendant of Muhammad) families and where it is one of the names of Muhammad – حبيب الله Habib Allah (Habibullah/ Habiballah).
