Meaning of Aakifah

Aakifah is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “woman who stays at the mosque to worship Allah”, “woman who stays away from people to dedicate herself to Allah”, a woman who is like Maryam (Mary), mother of Jesus, peace be upon them, who dedicates herself to Allah. Aakifah is derived from the AIN-K-F root which is used in many places in the Quran.

And [mention] when We made the House a place of return for the people and [a place of] security. And take, [O believers], from the standing place of Abraham a place of prayer. And We charged Abraham and Ishmael, [saying], “Purify My House for those who perform Tawaf and those who are staying [there] for worship and those who bow and prostrate [in prayer].” (Quran 2:125)
