Etymology of the name REHEMA.
Meaning of the baby name REHEMA.


REHEMA (رحيمة).  Arabic.  And Swahili from the Arabic, meaning "merciful."  Steere has rehema (mercy). (A Handbook of the Swahili Language as Spoken at Zanzibar, Steere, 1884).  In the Koran this is the name of Job's wife.

... Whether any of these poems are direct translations from Arabic originals remains to be decided.  Some appear to be taken from the prose romances, of which a great many have been catalogued and summarised by Ahlwardt.  Of these there are several dealing with the history of Job which may have been utilized in the Utenzi wa Agubu.  This introduces the incidents mentioned by the Koranic commentators; of Satan tempting Job's wife Rehema, of her selling her hair to provide food for Job, of his vow to giver her a hundred blows and Gabriel's suggestion that it can be fulfilled by striking her once with a palm branch having a hundred leaflets... (The Moslem World, Zwemer, v.10, 1920).
