    Another Jangda:

    Sadly, I am also unaware of the meaning of ‘Jangda’. However I must say that I have not researched its meaning till now. One thing I will tell you, of which you are probably aware, is that the actual pronunciation of the name in the dialect is “Jangra” with the thick ‘ra’ from the Urdu language. The thick ‘ra’ often gets transliterated as ‘d’ as is the case with ‘Jangda’.

    Since you’re last name is Jangda, you are no doubt a memon. One thing you have to understand being from a memon family is the balance Allah has created. While memons enjoy the blessing of business acumen they have very unfortunate and sometimes down right ridiculous last names.

    Sh. AbdulNasir: as a memon, I definitely have to agree you lol, Memons do have crazy last names. me being one of them. Often time, Memons have names that are associated with something their ancestors might have done. For example, I have heard of the name “furniturwala.” In your case, the surname might refer to where your ancestors came from. If you didn’t know, there is a city in India called Jangra (with an “R”). Perhaps that might mean something. Good luck searching :)

    Aslamu-alaikum
    I think Jangda means “warrior”
    You know Rajputs were known to be “warrior”
    there is nothing wrong with that meaning as long as you pick and choose your battles.
    salam
    my two cents worth

    As-Salāmu `Alaykum Sheikh Abdul Nasir JANGDA SOMETHING-WALA

    Yes in fact I am Memon and after much research I can say there is no shame in being one and or even coming from ancestors that were skilled in mercantile (although I sort of have a distaste for business) I thing I am proud of is where the word Memon comes from, which is Mu’min, “believer”, and also I can proudly say that there is probably no Memon out there that isn’t a Muslim.

    Everyone has ridiculous last names, and usually they are attributed to former trade skill, maybe that is why some names have “wala” behind him. But usually almost all communities have last names either going back to their ancestors or the trade they were known for.

    Algebra

    I have also heard that “jangra” means warrior and also in one version of their history, traced the Memons back to the Rajputs. Maybe that is why Memoni also has Punjabi words. But it I do hope Jangda means “warrior” cause then it wouldn’t be a ridiculous last name :)

    Jazzakumullahu khayr for posting this leacture.
    May Allah protect us from being wasteful people. Remember the next time we and our children throw countless numbers of naans and rotis in the trash at Iftar in every Ramadhan and no one cares.
