Arabic Lessons

I was playing Counter Strike the other day. My handle was Habibi. Suddenly this guy started chatting in Arabic with me. His first message was "kaifa haluk habibi". I am like, um.. what? As the game progress, he would say "shu hatha?" or "assif" or "shukran". Curiosity got the better of me so I looked up these words. Here they are:

kaifa haluk habibi = how are you, habibi?
shu hatha = what is this?
assif = excuse me or sorry
shukran = thank you
ismak eih = what is your name
