Meaning of Suhail

Suhail is an Arabic name for boys that means “lenient”, “without trouble”, “easy to interact with”. It is also the name of a star known as Canopus in English, which is the second brightest star in the night-time sky, after Sirius. Suhail can also means “little plain”, a small area of flat land that doesn’t have many trees. Suhail is the diminutive form of Sahl.

Suhail is the name of many Sahaba (companions of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his companions), the best known of which is Suhail bin Amr bin Abd Shams al-Qarashi al-Amiri, the spokesman of Quraish. He was one of the top noblemen of the Quraish tribe and was opposed to Islam for many years, until converted and took part in many battles. He is the father of two other companions, Abdullah bin Suhail (a martyr who died in  the Battle of Yamamah during the rule of Abu Bakr) and Abu Jandal bin Suhail.

Other Sahaba with this name are Suhail bin Qais, Suhail bin Aamir and Suhail bin Udayy.
