The Name of Quraish

Once Ibn Abbas (RA), visited Muawiya (RA), in the presence of Amr bin Aas (RA). Amr bin Aas (RA) addressed Ibn Abbas (RA) saying, “I was just wondering about the Quraish - since you are known to be the most learned among the Quraish - tell me why the Quraish are called Quraish?”

Ibn Abbas (RA) replied. “Originally Quraish is the name of a sea-creature. A very powerful and strong creature that devours other sea creatures. All other creatures living in the sea are frightened and scared of it. Similarly, the Quraish tribe command a leading position and demand authority.”
