Meaning of Maarib

Maarib is the plural of Marab and it means “end goals”, “destinies”, “uses”. It is used in  Quran 20:18 in Prophet Musa’s (Moses’) conversation with Allah, exalted and majestic:

He replied, ‘It is my staff. I lean on it, and with it, I beat down the leaves for my flock; I also have other uses for it.’

In the above verse Ma’arib is translated as “uses”. Musa peace be upon him is saying that he has other goals in having that staff.
