Full Meaning of Mergia

Mergia means “wanted”, “wished for”, “desirable”. It is not directly mentioned in the Quran, but it is derived from R-J-A root which is used in the Quran, as in 39:9:

Is he who prays devoutly to God in the hours of the night, prostrating himself and standing in prayer, who is ever mindful of the life to come and hopes for the mercy of his Lord [like one who does not]? Say, ‘Are those who know equal to those who do not know?’ Truly, only those endowed with understanding will take heed.
