|Arabic term or phrase: loqum|
|Does this really mean THROAT in Arabic or Persian?|
If so, RAHAT LOQUM would mean something like RESTFUL THROAT.
Please give Romanisation of any non-Roman script as I don't know how well this system will support it.
HALQ or HALQOOM means throat.
RAHA means rest or comfort. The meaning is sometimes extended to "delight."
RAHAT AL-HALQOOM means "throat comfort" or "throat delight." In some places, this delicacy is called RAHA; in other places HALQOOM. On the box, you usually see the full name.
LUQUM is the plural of LUQMA. It means "morsels."
