Meaning of Shakur
Shakur is an Arabic name for boys that means “very appreciative”, “deeply grateful”, one who appreciates the goodness and kindness of others. Shakur is the hyperbolic form of Shakir. Shakur is one of the names of God in Islam, but since its meaning can also apply to humans, it can be used as a baby name (similar to Ali which is also a name of God). The word Shakur is a direct Quranic name that is mentioned ten times in the Quran.
And [thus], indeed, have We sent forth Moses with Our messages [and this Our command]: “Lead thy people out of the depths of darkness into the light, and remind them of the Days of God!” Verily, in this [reminder] there are messages indeed for all who are wholly patient in adversity and deeply grateful [to God].
