A person that is being overly self-confident about his or her skills or traits and/or at the same time being unreliable towards others expectations.
alt. forming a one-man-team, within an already existing team.
-"Was Sarah not supposed to come pitch the idea she been telling us about at the meeting today?
-"She did not show up, guess she pulled a farooq on us."
or a person:
"Hurry you ass up here, don't be a farooq!"
or a one-man-team:
-"Hey everone, let's join forces and try to get out of this flaming snake pit before the lions are released."
-"No, FU guys. I'm gonna be a farooq and do my own thing!"
Farooqs tend to be mysterious, reclusive, helpful people who are not interested in the life of this world and seek God and the greater esoteric meaning of life. Farooqs are humble, handsome, hot, hilarious humans.
Farooqs are geniuses. For example, famous Farooqs include: al-Farooq Umar bin al-Khattab, the 2nd caliph of Islam; King Farouk I of Egypt; Farrokh Bolsara aka Freddie Mercury of British rock band Queen; Farooq Farooqui, a Pakistani politician with an absurdly redundant yet awesome name; and last but not least, any Farooq that you know (I know plenty!)
Farooqs are not pimps, nor are they words to be shouted in a bar nor on any street, and they are most definitely NOT on fire.
Find a Farooq and seek his friendship.
Farooq means progress!
Farooq is sexy!
Farooq is not on fire!
Farooq is my best friend!
