Etymology 1[edit]

From the root ح ق ق(ḥ-q-q). Compare Hebrew חוק(ḥóqq, law), Classical Syriac ܚܘܩܐ(ḥuqqā, rule) Ge'ez ሐቀቀ (ḥäḳäḳä, to fasten), Tigrinya ሓቂ (ḥaqqi, truth). Perhaps related to حَجَّ(ḥajja, to convince with legal arguments; to make the pilgrimage to Mecca) and words corresponding to this root in the other Semitic languages.
