What is the exact meaning of Aahil? Is it OK if i keep this name for my child?


This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

Aahil is an Arabic word that means "great king", "great leader", "emperor", a king or ruler who presides over multiple nations and countries. It is not a Quranic word but you can use it as a name since it doesn't have a bad meaning. It is written as عَاهِل in Arabic and can also be written as Ahil, Ahel, Aahel in English. Is is pronounced [(A)fter] + [(H)ot + s(I)t + p(L)ay] with emphasis on the first syllable.

    If indeed ahil means great king then it shouldn’t be used for a human as only allah is the king… plus if there’s no proof of it being in quran why would you prefer it over one that is from the words of the almighty, may Allah guide us ameen…
