Meaning of Rehab

Rehab is an indirect Quranic name for boys and girls that means “vast”, “spacious”, “open-minded”, “generous”. It is derived from the R-H6-B Quranic root.

Certainly Allah helped you in many battlefields and on the day of Hunain, when your great numbers made you vain, but they availed you nothing and the earth became strait to you notwithstanding its spaciousness, then you turned back retreating. (Quran 9:25)

    I’d advise to use a different spelling of the name if you live in a country which uses the latin script (most countries do) as in English “rehab” isn’t the best of words.

    Rehab in English is short for rehabilitation. From latin re-habilitare = back – enabling. (Latin adjective “habilis” means “able”.) Rehabilitation is commonly used for the treatment for getting rid of an addiction. But it also means to heal as far as to be able to work again or for a prisoner to become good enough for society again. So basically: to restore something or somebody back to its original (good) state.
