amittai M

hebrew (אֲמִתַּי)

This name derives from the Hebrew “'ămittay”, meaning “my truth”. Amittai was the father of Jonah the prophet. He was also a native of Gath-hepher. Amittai (Matta in Arabic) is also mentioned in Islam in prophet Muhammad's Hadith, in which Muhammad emphasizes upon the belief that all prophets are equal in their importance and greatness: Muhammad's cousin Ibn Abbas recalled that the prophet had said: "one should not say that I am better than Jonah, son of Amittai".
