Meaning of the baby name AQIL.


AQIL (عقيل).  Arabic name, derived from the vocabulary word âqil, meaning "intelligent, quiet, well-trained."

31. 'âqil šītân mitl hmâr il-mutrân.
"Quiet outside but a devil inside, like the archbishop's donkey."  Said of a man who appears quiet and well-behaved, but is really the opposite.
âqil means "intelligent, quiet, well-trained," when used of animals.  Cf. Burton, 121. (Journal of the American Oriental Society, v.15, 1893)

(3.)  It is stated by Waqidy, fol. 196, that the whole of the family of al-Bokayr (or Abú-l-Bokayr—there is some doubt regarding his name) embraced the Islám before the flight, and emigrated to Madynah.  Four sons of al-Bokayr are named, viz. Gháfil, whose name Mohammad changed into Άqil, Khálid.  Jyás and Άmir.  The genealogy of al-Bokayr is b. Άbd Yalyl b. Náshib b. Ghorrah (some write Άyazah, and some Ghyrah) b. Sa'd b. Layth b. Bakr b. Bakr b. Abd Manáh b. Kinánah.  He was a confederate of Nofayl b. Άbd al-'Ozzá, the father of the eccentric Zayd, mentioned in p. 41; and his four sons were the first who swore fidelity to Mohammad in the house of al-Arqam.  Άqil was killed at Badr in A.H. 3, at an age of 43 years; and Khálid was killed in A.H. 4, at an age of 34 years. (The Life of Mohammad, Sprenger, 1851)
