A synonym for hookah, water pipe, or narghile. The word comes from the Persian word for glass. The term “shisha” is primarily used for water pipes in Egypt. Misinformed Westerners tend to refer to the tobacco smoked from a water pipe as "shisha". This is due to slang use in the Middle East, where it is acceptable to request a “flavored shisha” which means a hookah with flavored tobacco. The incorrect inference that “shisha” refers to the flavored tobacco spread into the vernacular and is primarily used by those that have only experienced this particular aspect of Middle Eastern culture in its cheaper, commercialized form in the West.
"I was just at the market and I bargained for a great deal on a three-hosed shisha"

"What flavors of malah do you have for your shisha?"

It’s a hookah, but arabs find it disrespectful and very “white” of someone to refer to a shisha as hookah. So if you say hookah fucking get your white ass out of here and give us the shisha we created back cause you don’t deserve it.
