Meaning of Ayyub

Ayyub is a direct Quranic name for boys that means “to return to God”, “to repent”. It is the name of one of the prophets mentioned in the Quran, whose name is mentioned four times. Ayyub is known as Job in the Bible. Ayyub is also the name of a number of the sahabah (companions of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him), such as Ayyub bin Abi Tamimah and Ayyub bin Bashir al-Ansari.

Remember Ayyub when he called on his Lord saying, ‘I have been afflicted with great distress: but You are the most merciful of the merciful.’ (Quran 21:83)
