Meaning of Raed

Raed is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “leader”, “pioneer”, “guide”, “pathfinder”. It is derived from the R-W-D root (to be ahead, to not hurry, to persuade or seduce, gentleness of a breeze, willpower), which is used in many places in the Quran.

So give a respite to the disbelievers. Deal you gently with them for a while. (Quran 86:17)

They replied, ‘We shall try to persuade his father to send him with us. We shall do [our utmost]!’ (Quran 12:61)
