Shafiq was the surname of a pure-blood wizarding family, extant in at least the 1930s.

The Shafiqs were included in the Pure-Blood Directory (published anonymously in Britain, although widely believed to have been authored by Cantankerus Nott), which listed them as one of the twenty-eight truly pure-blood families (the so-called 'Sacred Twenty-Eight').[1]

The Arabic word root شفق (sh-f-q) occurs in Arabic words whose meaning centres on "mercy", but one such word means "twilight".
