Meaning of Urwah

Urwah is a direct Quranic name for boys and girls that means “lion”, “ever-green tree” and “handhold”. It is mentioned in the Quran twice.

There shall be no compulsion in religion: true guidance has become distinct from error. But whoever refuses to be led by Satan and believes in God has grasped the strong handhold that will never break. God is all hearing and all knowing. (Quran 2:256)

And whoever submits his face to Allah while he is a doer of good – then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold. And to Allah will be the outcome of [all] matters. (Quran 31:22)
