Meaning of Arwaa

Arwa is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “female ibex” (the type of animal pictured here) and has meanings of “softness”, “lightness”, “agility”, “liveliness”, “beauty”. Arwa is the name of one of the aunts of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, whose full name is Arwa bint Abdulmutallib bint Hashim, and who became Muslim after her brother Hamzah (uncle of Prophet Muhammad) converted to Islam and thus is a Sahabiyyah (female companion of the Prophet). Arwa is derived from the R-W-Y root which is a Quranic root.

We have destroyed so many generations before them, who surpassed them in material power and splendor. (19:74)
