Meaning of Khaleef

Khaleef is an indirect Quranic name for boys and girls. It means “successor” (synonym of Khaleefa), “heir”, “a road that goes between two mountains”, or any path that is found in the mountains, including paths through which water flows. It is derived from the Kh-L-F root which is found in many locations in the Quran.

When your Lord said to the angels, ‘I am putting a successor on earth,’ they said, ‘Will You place someone there who will cause corruption on it and shed blood, while we glorify You with Your praise and extol Your holiness?’ [God] answered, ‘Surely, I know that which you do not know.’ (Quran 2:30)

It is He who has made you successors [of others] on the earth and has exalted some of you over the others in degrees of rank, so that He may test you by that which He has given you. Your Lord is swift in punishment; yet surely He is forgiving, and merciful. (Quran 6:165)
