Question about the name of Musa (alayhi salam) in the Qur'an
« on: August 09, 2016, 09:37:16 PM »
Hi there,

This is my first time posting here. I was reasearching a few things about the language of Ancient Egyptians recently and found out that word "mw" (pronounced "mw") means water and "sa" means "son" in Ancient Egyptian.

When you put both of these words together, it sounds like "Moosa", which would mean "water son" according to that, and this would be relevant because Musa (alayhi salam) was rescued from water by Firaun, but I'm not sure if there's any meaning to it. Am I reading too deeply into this or do you think there is a connection? If you think there's a connection, could you tell me what it is since I'm struggling to see anything beyond what I already said.

Thank you.
