Full Meaning of Qeiraat

Qeiraat is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “recitation of the Quran”. It is derived from the Q-R-HAMZ (he/she read or recited) which is used in many places in the Quran, and is also the root for the word “Quran” (which literally means The Reading, The Recitation):

And We sent down the Qur’an in parts, that you may gradually recite it to the people, and We sent it down slowly in stages. (Quran 17:106)

198. Had We revealed it to one of the foreigners. 199. And he had recited it to them, they still would not have believed in it. 200. Thus We make it pass through the hearts of the guilty. 201. They will not believe in it until they witness the painful punishment. (Quran 26:198-201)
