Kabir is a boy's name of Arabic origin whose simple air reveals a hidden transcendence. Originating as al-Kabīr, Kabir means "the great" or "ever-great" and stands as the 37th name of God in Islam. Yet the name is also intertwined with the Bhakti movement due to the writings of the 5th-century Indian mystic poet and saint Kabir. Known for his divisive criticisms of organized religion, Kabir advocated for the detachment of the ego in favor of a path of integrity—a legacy continued to this day through the Path of Kabir.
