Full Meaning of Aekef

Aekef is a direct Quranic name for boys that means “one who stays at the mosque to worship Allah”, “one who stays away from people to dedicate himself to Allah”.  Below is an example of a verse from the Quran that mentions the word Aekef:

Indeed those who disbelieve and who (now) hinder people from the Way of Allah and hinder them from the Holy Mosque which We have set up (as a place of worship) for all people, equally for those who dwell therein and for those who come from outside, (they surely deserve punishment). Whosoever deviates therein from the Right Way and acts with iniquity, We shall cause him to taste a painful chastisement. (Quran 22:25)
