Meaning of Murtaza

Murtaza is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “attainer of the pleasure of Allah”, a person that is accepted and beloved by Allah. Murtaza is derived from the R-DHAD-Y (contentment) root which is used in many places in the Quran.

He will admit them to a place with which they shall be well-pleased. For God is all knowing and most forbearing. (Quran 22:59)

    Murtaza was the name of Imam Ali (A.S.) and he was called by this name by none other than Prophet Mohammed (A.S.)

    As mentioned earlier A “Murtaza” is the attainer of God’s pleasure which makes obvious that he is one of “Sher-e-Khuda” or “Lion of the God”.
