Meaning of Katib

Katib is a direct Quranic name for boys that means “scholar”, “writer”, “intellectual”. It is used in a number of places in the Quran.

If you are on a journey and do not find any literate person, something should be handed over as security. If one of you entrusts another with something, let the trustee restore the pledge to its owner; and let him fear God, his Lord. Do not conceal testimony. If someone does conceal it, in his heart he commits a crime. God knows what you do. {Surat al-Baqarah 2:283}
