Talib

A talib or talibé (Arabic, طالب ṭālib, "student", lit. "seeker"; pl. طلاب ṭullāb) is a student, particularly a student of Islam, who may study in a madrasa or with a religious teacher.

The word "talib" in Arabic refers to any kind of student, whereas in English it has a stronger connotation towards religious students of Islam; the same is true of the word "madrasa" with respect to the English word "school".
