Persian Word of the Day- mohabbat

محبت / mohabbat / kindness; affection; tenderness

Mohabbat is yet another word that's very typical of the Iranian culture. One of the things that foreigners who visit Iran frequently say about Iranians is how friendly, kind, and hospitable they are, how they really take care of you and go that extra mile. To phrase this in a Persian way, Iraniā bā mohabbat hastan, literally Iranians are with mohabbat. It's kind of like the English, "[they're] you're too kind".
