Meaning of Affan
Affan is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means chaste, modest, virtuous, pure. It is derived from the Ain-F-F root which is used in a number of places in the Quran.
(Charity is) for Fuqara (the poor), who in Allah’s Cause are restricted (from travel), and cannot move about in the land (for trade or work). The one who knows them not, thinks that they are rich because of their modesty. You may know them by their mark, they do not beg of people at all. And whatever you spend in good, surely Allah knows it well. (Quran 2:273)
Let those who do not find the means to marry preserve their chastity until Allah enriches them of His bounty. (Quran 24:33)
