Meaning of Asif

Asif is a direct Quranic name for boys that means “strong”, “stormy”, “powerful”, “fierce”. It is mentioned four times in the Quran.

He it is Who enables you to journey through the land and the sea. And so it happens that when you have boarded the ships and they set sail with a favourable wind, and the passengers rejoice at the pleasant voyage, then suddenly a fierce gale appears, and wave upon wave surges upon them from every side, and people believe that they are surrounded from all directions, and all of them cry out to Allah in full sincerity of faith: ‘If You deliver us from this we shall surely be thankful. (Quran 10:22)

Asif is also sometimes used as a variant of Asaf, which is the supposed name of an adviser of Prophet Sulaiman/Solomon, peace be upon him.

    Asif with ” AAIN” means taur dene wali, that means strong in a negative sense (Fierce) , not a good name for muslims…
    Reference: Surah Yunas, Ayah 22
