“Ghayyum” (Absolute Self-Existent) is one of Allah’s exalted names mentioned in the Holy Quran, and due to its occurrence in the popular and much-recited verse, Ayat-ol-Korsi, has become a catchword among Muslims. Meanwhile, various discussions about the literal and interpretive meanings of the term indicate the distinguished place it has had from antiquity among exegetes and the diverse meanings ascribed to it.
In this article it has been attempted to offer an Arabic lexical model based on terms like Iblis and Ghistas, in order to provide a new suggestion about the structure of Ghayyum. Using an etymological approach, the lexical structure of various other words in Hebraic, Aramean, Syriac and Latin languages have been observed for discovering the lexical structure of Ghayyum.
