Full Meaning of Qeseym

Qeseym is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “one who shares/distributes something among people”, “giver”, “generous”, “handsome”. It was the name of one of the sons of Prophet Muhammad, and from it comes one of the famous nicknames of the Prophet: Abul Qeseym (“father of Qeseym”), peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his family and companions. Qeseym is derived from the Q-S-M root which is used in many places in the Quran.

But is it they who distribute thy Sustainer’s grace? [Nay, as] it is We who distribute their means of livelihood among them in the life of this world, and raise some of them by degrees above others, to the end that they might avail themselves of one another’s help – [so, too, it is We who bestow gifts of the spirit upon whomever We will]: and this thy Sustainer’s grace is better than all [the worldly wealth] that they may amass. (Quran 43:32)
