Meaning

The name Tariq from the Sufi tradition (the Tariqas orders) has three related meanings in the Arabic language:

  1. Ṭāriq, the noun related to the Arabic verb ṭaraqa (Arabic: طرق‎ meaning "messenger / knocking") and thus meaning deliverer of messages / the knocking one
  2. The Qur'an names the morning star ṭāriq and describes it as the shining star that leads the way. Recent discoveries about pulsar stars have prompted some scholars to associate those neutron stars with ṭāriq, where knocking equates to pulsing.[1]
  3. "Traveler through the night", or more specifically a "pathbreaker" or "pathfinder" or "he who leads the way".[citation needed]
