Meaning of Safeeya
Safeeya is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “pure”, “chosen”, “virtuous”. It is a beloved name among Muslims due to its belonging to three well-known Muslim women from the history of Islam:
- Safeeya bint Abdulmutallib, aunt of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his family and companions
- Safeeya bint Huyi, wife of Prophet Muhammad
- Safeeya bint Umar, daughter of Umar bin al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with them
Safeeya is derived from the SAD-F-A root which is used in many places in the Quran.
And when the angels said: “O Mary! Behold, God has chosen thee and made thee pure, and raised thee above all the women of the world. (Quran 3:42)
