Meaning of Ruhab

Ruhab is an indirect Quranic name for boys and girls that means “forbearing”, “open-minded”, “generous”, “spacious”. It is derived from the R-H6-B Quranic root.

Certainly Allah helped you in many battlefields and on the day of Hunain, when your great numbers made you vain, but they availed you nothing and the earth became strait to you notwithstanding its spaciousness, then you turned back retreating. (Quran 9:25)
