Meaning of Muawiyah

Muawiyah is an Arabic word for boys that literally means “one who howls”, from the root AIN-W-A (“to howl”), and it refers to female dogs and the cubs of foxes, lions, and other animals. Muawiyah was the name of the founder of the Omayyad empire, the Sahabi Muawiyah bin Abu Sufyan. It is not a Quranic name but Muslims can use since it existed during the time of the Prophet ﷺ and he didn’t ask the name to be changed (like he changed those names that he found unacceptable).

    our beloved prophet pbuh says:
    Whoever abuses my Companions, upon them is the curse of Allah, the angels and all the people” [Saheeh, At-Tabaranee]

    “Do not abuse my Companions, for if any of you were to spend gold equal to (mountain of) Uhud in charity, it would not equal a handful of one of them or even half of that” [al-Bukharee, Muslim].
