Meaning of Ayat

Ayat is a Persian name for girls that means “sign of God’s greatness”, “verse from the Quran”.The name literally means “sign”, “clue”. Ayat is a variant of the Arabic name Ayah, both names are correct and acceptable.

Ayat can also be another spelling of the name Ayaat, which is the plural form of this name. Therefore we have three separate but similar names: Ayat (the topic of this post), Ayah (the standard Arabic form of Ayat), and Ayaat (the plural of Ayah).

    Hello my name is Ayat and I’m Arabic-Muslim girl, let me correct how it’s written in Arabic; it’s آيات as there’s nothing spelled like Ayt or Ayut.. It’s Ayat plural of Ayah 🙂

    @1: While your intentions are admirable, your information is incorrect since the name آيات is covered in the entry Ayaat. The current entry above is about the Turkish/Persian pronunciation of the name Ayah, which is pronounced differently than Ayaat.

    To simplify, while Arabs say Ayah, Turks and Persians say Ayat. These two names are the same, and they are both singular. As for the plural, it is Ayaat (which can also be written as Ayat, but the above entry is not about it), and Arabs, Turks and Persians will all pronounce it the same (as Aayaat).

    assalaam alaykum wr wb, it should be written as آية and pronounced aayah… آيت is actually pronounce as aayaat, in the Quran, there is no “alif” after the “yaa”.

    I am no.8.
    To clarify, the Persian/ Urdu way of spelling “aayah” is incorrect as it spells the plural form.
