Hello! I would like to know how do you say "I love you" in Farsi. Thanks.
Welcome to the forums!
To say I love you in Farsi from Iran/Afghanistan:
.من تو را دوست دارم
Man túra dúst daram.*
*In my dialect (Afghan Farsi), we say muh tú ra dúst darum.
ú is pronounced as the oo in boot
If I remember my Persian language it means "I/to you/friendship or love/(I)give.
I think I understand what you're saying:
Mah túra dúst darummeans I have love/feelings/emotions for you. Dust darum means I love [I have love].
Example: Muh úra dúst darum (I have love for it, I love it)
Darum means I have
You are right Bienvenidos. I mixed up with dâdan to give.
Just as Bienvenido said, من تو را دوست دارم (man tu ra dust daram) or دوست دارم (duset daram) is more common. But in Farsi you could as well say: من عاشقت هستم (man asheqet hastam): I love you with the context of I am in love with you. I think Bienvenido was shy to say it
I understand now why love is called aşk in Turkish. من عاشقت هستم
Yes, in Persian called eshq as well.
Also in Arabic, I even think Persian took it from Arabic, the word for love (extreme love ) is 3ishq عِـشـْق , a lover is عاشق (the word has a different denotation from "simple" love 7obb حب : Lisan al-3arab (a monolingual dictionary) defines 3ishq as : فرط الحب i.e. excess of love.
I guess so, since ق (q) is not originally a Persian alphabet and I think has come from Arabic into Persian.
Thanks everybody .
Hehe I didn't even think of mentioning (man asheqet hastam). Very lovey-dovey talk
I appreciate your help, will keep in touch. Ty.
تو را دوست دارم
عاشق تو هستم
