Arabic term or phrase:eihab
this is the name of a social service agency being used as an acronym (empowering, instructing, habilitation, assisting and bettering) however I wonder if it has another meaning perhaps. Thank you.
We'll just have to look em up;
Nancy, "A city in northeastern France in Lorraine"
and Pascal, "French mathematician and philosopher and Jansenist; invented an adding machine; contributed (with Fermat) to the theory of probability (1623-1662)", :-)
You are right dear peer. Just wanted to make a point that if does not exis امهات المعاجم it does not mean that it has no meaning. We provided what is commonly understood. If next somebody ask meaning of نانسي or باسكال what then? تحياتي
Hi Aljoubry. Saleh did his part when he provided material justifying his disagreement. I do not think he has to give an answer. Maybe it's just a name that doesn't really mean anything. Maybe it's from Turkish or Farsi.
Dear Saleh, I have to admit that I wrote my own understanding of the name without doing thorough research as you did. However, after all your research I see that you have not proposed an answer!! So what is the meaning of Ihab then?
انْطَلِقْ معي أَهَبْكَ نَبْلاً ووَهَبْتُ له هِبةً ومَوهِبَةً ووَهْباً ووَهَباً إِذا أَعْطَيْتَهُ ووهَبَ اللّهُ له الشيءَ فهو يَهَبُ هِبةً وتَواهَبَ الناسُ بينهم وفي حديث الأَحْنَفِ ولا التَّواهُبُ فيما بينَهم ضَعَةٌ يعني أَنهم لا يَهَبُونَ مُكْرَهِينَ
والوَهُوبُ الرجلُ الكثيرُ الهِباتِ ابن سيده وَهَبَ لك الشيءَ يَهَبُه وَهْباً ووَهَباً بالتحريك وهِبَةً والاسم المَوهِبُ والمَوهِبةُ بكسر الهاءِ فيهما ولا يقال وَهَبَكَه هذا قول سيبويه وحكى السيرافي عن أَبي عمرو أَنه سمع أَعرابياً يقول لآخر انْطَلِقْ معي
الهِبةُ العَطِيَّة الخاليةُ عن الأَعْواضِ والأَغْراضِ فإِذا كَثُرَتْ سُمِّي صاحِبُها وَهَّاباً وهو من أَبنية المُبالغة غيره الوَهَّابُ من صفاتِ اللّه المُنعِمُ على العباد واللّهُ تعالى الوهَّابُ الواهِبُ وكلُّ ما وُهِبَ لك من ولَد وغيره فهو مَوهُوبٌ
However, إهاب means the skin of the animal before taning it as indicated in Al-Mukhasas by Ibn Seedah Al-Andalusi. I am going to insert the entry of Wahaba from Lisaan Al-Arab to dispell any doubt that you have:
( وهب ) في أَسماءِ اللّه تعالى الوَهَّابُ
I searched more than one hundred reference in Arabic languageto find that إيهاب or إهاب is an inflection of وهب or means giving, bestowal, giving gift, granting or anything like this but the results unfortunately were zero.
