Full Meaning of Enes

Enes is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means a person who brings you joy and peace of mind, who removes your fears and worries. It is a common name of the Sahabah (companions of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his companions). It is derived from the A-N-S root (to see, to recognize, to feel safe) which is used in a number of places in the Quran and is the root for the word Insaan (mankind).

He saw a fire [in the desert]; and so he said to his family: “Wait here! Behold, I perceive a fire [far away]: perhaps I can bring you a brand there from, or find at the fire some guidance.” (Quran 20:10)

And test the orphans [in their abilities] until they reach marriageable age. Then if you recognize in them sound judgement, release their property to them. And do not consume it excessively and quickly, [anticipating] that they will grow up. And whoever, [when acting as guardian], is self-sufficient should refrain [from taking a fee]; and whoever is poor – let him take according to what is acceptable. Then when you release their property to them, bring witnesses upon them. And sufficient is Allah as Accountant. (Quran 4:6)
