Meaning of Taariq

Tariq means “night visitor” or “star”, since stars appear at night. After the discovery of pulsars, which are highly magnetized, rotating neutron stars that emit powerful beams of electromagnetic radiation, some modern Muslim scholars say that tariq refers to these stars, and this interpretation fits the Quranic verse perfectly, because in Arabic tariq means ‘thing that knocks’, and pulsars were initially called ‘knocking stars’, stars that make a constant knocking sound when listened to on a radio receiver.

By the sky and the night comer (or pulsar). And what do you know of the night comer? It is a piercing star. {86:1-3}

Taariq should not be confused with tureeq [T + hUmble + REEd + iraQ], which means path or road.

    This is my son’s name because the word Tarik/Tariq is perfect proof the Qur’an could not have been written by man.

    Do you have to pronounce Tariq with Qaaf. Or can you pronounce it with Kaaf like Tarik. And does the meaning of the name change.
