Meaning of Zakiya

Zakiya is a direct Quranic name for girls that means “pure”, “innocent”, “untainted”, “having a sweet scent”. The word Zakiya is used once in the Quran in Surat al-Kahf, and its root Z-K-A is used in many places in the Quran.

[Moses] said, “Have you killed a pure soul for other than [having killed] a soul? You have certainly done a deplorable thing.” (Quran 18:74)

It is He who has sent among the unlettered ones a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom – although they were before in clear error. (Quran 62:2)
