Sahib (Punjabi: ਸਾਹਿਬ Hindi: साहिब, Urdu: صاحب) (traditionally pronounced /ˈsɑːɪb/ or /ˈsɑːb/ in English, now often /səˈhiːb/) is an eastern term of respect, meaning Sir, master or lord, used in several languages including Punjabi, Hindi-Urdu (Hindustani), Bengali and Marathi. It has also been translated as: grace or, as in the Sikh religion, "Guru's honor." It comes from the Arabic ṣāḥib, originally "friend, companion" (from ṣaḥiba "he accompanied"). Its feminine form is ṣāḥibah.
