Meaning of Abbas

Abbas is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “lion”. It is the name of many companions of Prophet Muhammad  ﷺ, including Abbas bin Abdulmutallib, uncle of the Prophet and an important figure in Islamic history. Abbas is derived from the AIN-B-S (grim) root which is used in many places in the Quran.

Indeed, We fear from our Lord a Day grim and distressful. (Quran 76:10)
