Full Meaning of Muhagir

Muhagir is a direct Quranic name for boys that means “one who avoids”, “one who leaves something/somewhere”, and when used as a name it means “one who avoids sins”, “one who leaves bad things alone (doesn’t engage in them)”, “one who leaves the world alone (is not greedy)”. Muhajir also means “one who performs Hijrah“, which is migration to a place for the sake of Allah. It is derived from the H26-J-R Quranic root.

But Lut had faith in Him: He said: “I will leave home for the sake of my Lord: for He is Exalted in Might, and Wise.” (Quran 29:26)
