Aftab, Aaftaab Meaning | आफ़ताब, آفتاب

Aaftaab (also spelled aftab, aftaab, aaftab, Devanagari:आफ़ताब, Farsi:آفتاب) is an Urdu word of Farsi origin which means 'the sun'.

It's a word commonly used in Urdu poetry, but much less in Hindi film songs now. However it remains popular due to the famous ghazal 'chaudahvin kaa chaand ho yaa aaftaab ho' and continues to bother people who are not familiar with the word.
