Etymology of the name HAFSAH.
Meaning of the baby name HAFSAH.

  

HAFSAH (حفسہ).  A variant spelling of Arabic Hafza, a feminine form of Arabic Hafiz (q.v.), meaning "guardian."  This was the name of one of the Prophet's wives.  Also spelled Hafsa.

... Some relate, indeed, that Hafsah caught the Prophet in a situation which left no doubt of his criminal amours with her. To appease his wife he promised with an oath never to touch her again, and to gratify her vanity, as well as to induce her to keep the affair a secret, he foretold to her that Abu-Bakr and Omar should be his successors... (The Biblical World, Harper, v.5, 1895)
