    Totally wrong ! Nothing to do with Muslim meaning whatsoever. “Rafid” means a small river, or tributary !! Mesopotamia, in fact, is called “Bilad Al Rafidain” which translates into “Land of Two Rivers”.
    The plural word is “Rawafid” (روافد). Thank you.

    Rafid name is not an Islamic name and has no relation to Islam . It is a beautiful name and people who speak Arabic and lived in the Middle East are a mixture of many religions and they are the people of the first great civilizations . They are called the people of the “Land Of The ” AND THAT WAS THOUSAND YEARS BEFORE ISLAM . IN ANY ARABIC DICTIONARY RAFID MEANS THE GREAT , RIVER OF KNOWLEDGE, OR A AN ORIGIN RIVER CONTRIBUTING TO FORM A VERY LARGE RIVER . PLEASE CORRECT YOUR INFORMATION.
