Meaning of Afraa
Afraa is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “white”, “fair”, “13th night of the lunar month” (on which the moon is almost full and thus its white light is shining brightly), “female gazelle that with white patches of fur”. Afraa is the name of two Sahabiyaat (virtuous women who lived at the time of the Prophet ﷺ) that we know of, whose full names were Afraa bint Ubaid bin Thaalaba and Afraa bint as-Sakn bin Raafi. It is derived from the AIN-F-R AIN-F-R (“dust”, “power”, etc.) root which is used in the Quran in verse 27:39.
A powerful one from among the jinn said, “I will bring it to you before you rise from your place, and indeed, I am for this [task] strong and trustworthy.” (Quran 27:39)
