 17th-century Indian Mughal miniature of a buraq, which is almost always portrayed with a human face in far-eastern and Persian art

What's in a name???????????????

The name Barack (also spelled Barak, Barac, Buraq, and Baraq) represents two distinct Arabic and Hebrew given names, one derived from the Semitic root B-R-K, the other from B-R-Q.

B-R-Q in Hebrew ( ברק‎, Bārāq) means “lightning”.  Do you remember what Jesus said in Luke 10:18?:

    “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.”

Burāq (Arabic: البُراق‎ al-Burāq “lightning”) is the horse that purportedly carried Muhammad from Mecca to Jerusalem and back during the so-called Night Journey that took place 10 years after Muhammad became a self-declared prophet, during the 7th century.
