AOA My name is Jasia and it's a surah in the Quran. It means "crouching", I would like to know whether it is a positive or negative name.


This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

Jasia or Jathiyah is the name of chapter 45 of the Quran and it does mean "crouching". It is not clear whether the meaning is positive or negative, it may be neutral. The word refers to the fact that everyone on the Day of Judgment will be humbly prostrating to God, it is an act that both the believers and the non-believers will be doing, therefore it is not a bad thing. You can think of the meaning as "humble before God", which is a good meaning.
