Meaning of the baby name TARIQ.

  

TARIQ (طارق).  Arabic name meaning "night-comer." (See below).  Also spelled Tarek.  And cf. Zendic Taric.

    AT-TARIQ (الطارق).  "The night-comer."  The title of the LXXXVIth Surah of the Qur'an, beginning thus:
    "By the heaven, and by the night-comer!
    But what shall teach thee
    What the night-comer is?
    'Tis the star of piercing radiance."
    According to al-Wahidi, these words were revealed when Abu Talib, at the time of the evening meal, was startled by a shooting star.  Nöldeke, however, observes that the three verses seem rather to apply to a planet or a fixed star of particular brightness. (A Dictionary of Islam, Hughes, 1896)
