    Hafs is an Arabic name for boys that means “small house”. It is the name of many companions of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him, such as Hafs bin al-Mugheera and Hafs bin Sulaiman, for this reason it can be considered an Islamic name. Hafs is not a Quranic name as its root is not mentioned in the Quran as far as we know.
