Meaning of Imani

Imani is an indirect Quranic name for girls that mean very faithful, one who has a strong faith in Allah and their faith is their identity. It is derived from the A-M-N and is formed from the word Iman, which is another Quranic name.

When the believers saw the confederates, they said, ‘This is what God and His Messenger have promised us. Surely the promise of God and His Messenger has come true.’ It served to increase them in faith and submission. (Quran 33:22)

A believer, a man from among the people of Pharaoh, who had concealed his faith, said, ‘Would you slay a man merely because he says, “My Lord is God.” He has brought you clear signs from your Lord, and if he is lying, the sin of his will be on his own head; but if he is truthful, a part of that of which he warns you will surely befall you. Certainly, God does not guide one who is a transgressor and a liar. (Quran 40:28)

    To everyone asking about the difference between Imani and Amani. That one letter makes a big difference in the Swahili language, Imani meaning faith, and Amani meaning peace!
