Meaning of the name "Shihab Saqib

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:


now i would like to ask you the meaning of the name "Shihab Saqib" because i've heard a lot of meanings to my name but not a perfect one

Meaning name shihab saqib

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.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 15 Surah Hijr verses 17-18:

17 And (moreover) we have guarded them (the heavens) from every accursed ‘shayateen’:

18 But any that gains a hearing by stealth is pursued by a manifest ‘Shihaab’ (flaming bright fire) .


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 86 Surah Taariq verses 1-3:

1 By the Sky and the night-visitant (therein)

2 And what will explain to thee what the night-visitant is?

3 (It is) the Star of ‘Saaqib’ (piercing brightness)


Both the terms ‘Shihaab’ and ‘Saaqib’ are mentioned in the Glorious Quran, and the meaning of the terms are as follows:


Shihaab: means a flaming bright fire, like that of a shooting star, and,

Saaqib: means absolutely piercing brightness.


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


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
