Ayoub Name Meaning
Muslim: from Arabic Ayyub, the Arabic form of the Hebrew (Biblical) name Iyob ‘Job’. In the suras he is regarded as a messenger of Allah. This name is borne by Christians (in Lebanon and elsewhere) as well as by Muslims. The spread of the name among Muslims is partly due to the fame of ?Sala?h ad-Din Yusuf ibn Ayyub (Saladin), founder of the Ayyubid dynasty.
