Meaning of Musa
Musa is a direct Quranic name for boys that comes from non-Arabic origins. It is common among Muslims out of love for Prophet Musa (Moses). According to the Jewish Roman scholar Josephus the name comes from ancient Egyptian origins, derived from mo (water) and uses (to save), forming the meaning “saved from the water”, since when Prophet Musa was an infant his mother put him in the river, which carried him to the Egyptian Pharaoh’s lands, where he was found and saved. Other sources say it means “saved” or “savior”.
The name of Prophet Musa is mentioned more than any other prophet in the Quran, amounting to 136 times (Prophet Muhammad is mentioned five times only by name).
But when he came close to it, a call was sounded: “Blessed are all who are within [reach of] this fire, and all who are near it! And limitless in His glory is God, the Sustainer of all the worlds!” [And God spoke thus:] “O Musa! Verily I alone am God, the Almighty, the Wise!” [And then He said:] “Now throw down thy staff!” But when he saw it move rapidly, as if it were a serpent, he drew back [in terror], and did not [dare to] return. [And God spoke to him again:] O Musa! Fear not – for, behold, no fear need the message-bearers have in My Presence. (Quran 27:10)
