Meaning of Hayyan

Hayyan is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means alive, awake, and someone who has self respect and refuses to be mistreated and disrespected. It is derived from the H6-Y-A root which is the source of many common Arabic words, such as Hayaat (life).

God gives abundantly to whom He will and sparingly to whom He pleases—[those who deny the truth] rejoice in the life of this world; yet the life of this world is but a fleeting pleasure compared with the life to come. (Quran 13:26)

To whoever does good deeds, man or woman, and is a believer, We shall assuredly give a good life; and We will bestow upon them their reward according to the best of their works. (Quran 16:97)
