Assalamualaikum, I came across this unique and beautiful name while searching for unique sahaba names , and was pleased to see in another website that it means “worshiper of Allah“. Wikipedia is showing that Al-ahnaf(https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahnaf_ibn_Qais) means the clubfooted.

Do Ahnaf and Al-ahnaf mean same?

Kindly explain as I have already kept my baby’s name Ahnaf Islam.


The word "Ahnaf" refers to a man who has a particular crookedness in his legs. The Sahabi was named like that because he had such a crookedness.

As far as I found, it does not mean "worshiper of Allah."
