Meaning of Safeeya

Safeeya is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “pure”, “chosen”, “virtuous”. It is a beloved name among Muslims due to its belonging to three well-known Muslim women from the history of Islam:

  1. Safeeya bint Abdulmutallib, aunt of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his family and companions
  2. Safeeya bint Huyi, wife of Prophet Muhammad
  3. Safeeya bint Umar, daughter of Umar bin al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with them

Safeeya is derived from the SAD-F-A root which is used in many places in the Quran.

And when the angels said: “O Mary! Behold, God has chosen thee and made thee pure, and raised thee above all the women of the world. (Quran 3:42)
