Answer

It means men of courage. It is a title given by Allah (s.w.t) to some of the messengers (alayhimus salaam). The ayat is at the end of surah al-Ahqaaf in the 26th Juz. Allah says:

“(O Muhammad) Now be patient just as the Messengers who were men of courage did so. And do not seek for the punishment to be hastened upon them”.
