Meaning of Shakir

Shakir is a direct Quranic name for boys that means “thankful”, “appreciative”, “grateful”. It is used four times in the Quran.

Indeed, Abraham was a [comprehensive] leader, devoutly obedient to Allah, inclining toward truth, and he was not of those who associate others with Allah. [He was] grateful for His favors. Allah chose him and guided him to a straight path. (Quran 16:120-121)
