Meaning of Muneeb

Muneeb is a Quranic name for boys. It is derived from the Arabic word anaba, which means “he returned to God’s way and made repentance and started being obedient to God again.” Muneeb is a person who constantly returns to God and constantly repents after every sin, major or minor.

God uses this word to describe one of the most important and respected prophets: prophet Ibrahim [as]:

Ibrahim was most forebearing, most tender-hearted, intent upon turning to God again and again. {Surat Hud 75:11}
