Meaning of the baby name FAROUK.


FAROUK (فاروق).  Variant form of Arabic Faruq (q.v.), meaning "distinguisher," from farak (to separate, distinguish). (An English and Arabic Dictionary, Catafago, 1873).  Also spelled Farooq.

... Coming back, he brings his scimitar along with him, and at one single stroke, cuts off the head of the Mussulman, who had refused to be ruled by Mohammed's decision; saying, with a loud voice, "See what they deserve, who will not acquiesce in the determination of their judges."  It was upon this occasion that Mohammed gave him the title or surname of Farouk; intimating thereby that Omar knew as well how to distinguish truth from falsehood, and justice from injustice, as he did to separate the head of that knave from his body. (History of the Saracens, Ockley, 1890)
