ArabicEdit

EtymologyEdit

An Iranian borrowing, ultimately from Proto-Iranian *paridayȷ́ah. According to Eilers, an Iranian form *parādēs, which resembles the very common broken plural pattern فَعَالِيق (faʿālīq), was perhaps borrowed as a plural فَرَادِيس(farādīs) and the singular فِرْدَوْس (firdaws) created as a back-formation from it.[1]

NounEdit

فِرْدَوْس (firdawsm or f (plural فَرَادِيس(farādīs))

  1. garden, Elysium, Eden, heaven, Heaven, paradise
