Meaning of Adnan

Adnan is an indirect Quranic name for boys that is thought to be the name of the son of Prophet Ismaeel son of Prophet Ibrahim, peace be upon them. Adnan is the father of all Arabs of the north of Arabia and is one of the ancestors of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Adnan is derived from the AIN-D-N root (“eternal settlement”, “paradise”) and thus means “one who settles for a long time in a place”, “paradise”.

Allah has promised the believing men and believing women gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally, and pleasant dwellings in gardens of perpetual residence (i.e. Paradise); but approval from Allah is greater. It is that which is the great attainment. (Quran 9:72)
