What is the meaning of Mazoon & Mukasir?

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

What is the meaning of "Muqasir" and Maazoon"When these titles were introduced and by who.I have asked native arabs the literary meaning of these words. None has ever heard these words. Are these words not of arabic origin?


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




What is the meaning of Mazoon & Mukasir?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


The Arabic word mazoon would mean one who has been given permission. And the word mukasir would mean one who strives hard.


Your Question: Are these words not of arabic origin?

The words are definitely of Arabic origin.


Your Question: When these titles were introduced and by who?

Allah Alone knows best who, when, and why were these titles introduced! What is important to know is that these titles were not introduced by either Allah or His Messenger (saws), and thus have nothing to do with the guidance and teachings of Islam. These are man-made titles, which were given to men, and have absolutely no basis and authority in Islam.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
