Meaning of Ammar

Ammar is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “one who brings a place back to life”, “one who tends and maintains something”, “long-lived”, “God-fearing”, “pious”, “one whose presence brings joy to others”. It is the name of an important early companion (Sahabi) of the Prophet, peace and blessings upon him and his companions, whose name was Ammar bin Yasir. Ammar is derived from the Ain-M-R root (lifetime, to tend, to build) which is used in many places in the Quran.

He (Pharaoh) said (to Moses): ‘Did We not bring you up when you were a child? And have you not spent years of your life amongst us? (Quran 26:18)
