Meaning of Naqeeb

Naqeeb is a direct Quranic name for boys that means “representative”, “leader”. It is used in the Quran in the Surat al-Ma’idah.

And Allah had already taken a covenant from the Children of Israel, and We delegated from among them twelve leaders. And Allah said, “I am with you. If you establish prayer and give zakah and believe in My messengers and support them and loan Allah a goodly loan, I will surely remove from you your misdeeds and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow. But whoever of you disbelieves after that has certainly strayed from the soundness of the way.” (Quran 5:12)
