Full Meaning of Lokman

Lokman is a direct Quranic name for boys that refers to a person mentioned in the Quran. Chapter 3 of the Quran, Surat Lokman, is named after him. The Quran does not mention whether he was prophet, some consider him a prophet and others think he was just a good wise man. The Quran mentions Lokman twice.

12. And We had certainly given Lokman wisdom [and said], “Be grateful to Allah.” And whoever is grateful is grateful for [the benefit of] himself. And whoever denies [His favor] – then indeed, Allah is Free of need and Praiseworthy.

13. And [mention, O Muhammad], when Lokman said to his son while he was instructing him, “O my son, do not associate [anything] with Allah. Indeed, association [with him] is great injustice.” (Quran 31:12-13)
