Keeping the name Aasif

Q: What is the meaning and origin of ‘Aathif’ and how to spell it and in which verse of the Quran is ‘aathif’ mentioned? If we pronounce it simply as aathif without tajweed will the meaning differ?

A: If it is Aasif that you are speaking about then this is a Hebrew word. Reference is made to this person in Surah Naml.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
