Question text

I want some information about the meaning and origin of the word "Futrus", the name of the angel whose wings grew after touching Imam Hussain (a.s).

Visits 502 categorization: Angels

According to the narrations and certain supplications, Futrus is the name of an angel whom Allah (s.w.t) granted permission to go down to Earth along with the other angels who were going to visit the Prophet (s.a.w.s) to felicitate the birth of Imam Hussain (a.s). On visiting the blessed infant, Futrus was given this blessing. Therefore it is a nice name to give a son. Finally, as far as we know, the name ‘Futrus’ has a Greek origin.
