Islamic Baby Girl Name and the Meaning ~ Hi all readers! Are you looking for an Islamic baby girl name? Congratulations! You’re reading the right article. In this article I will explain about some Islamic baby girl name and the meanings. It is true, for some parents, getting the best name for their child is sometimes difficult. For this reason, there are some married couples who ask others who know better about it. The reason is simple, because the name is prayer. So, indeed someone must give a good name for their children, not just any name.
Before I explain Islamic baby girl name, I want to say that, actually, what is meant by Islamic names is not always a name that comes from an Arabic term – Arabic names are often used by many Muslims to name their children. What is important, if we want to give a name to a baby, baby boy or baby girl, we must ensure that the name has a very good meaning. In addition, we must also ensure that the name does not have a bad history in our religion.
As for some examples of Islamic names for baby girls that have a good meaning are as follows;
One; Najwa (نَجْوَى). Before I explain the meaning of the word Najwa, I want to say that the word exists in many verses of the Quran as below;
نَّحۡنُ أَعۡلَمُ بِمَا يَسۡتَمِعُونَ بِهِۦٓ إِذۡ يَسۡتَمِعُونَ إِلَيۡكَ وَإِذۡ هُمۡ نَجۡوَىٰٓ إِذۡ يَقُولُ ٱلظَّٰلِمُونَ إِن تَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا رَجُلٗا مَّسۡحُورًا ٤٧
We are most knowledgeable of how they listen to it when they listen to you and [of] when they are in private conversations, when the wrongdoers say, “You follow not but a man affected by magic.” (Al-Isra ; 47).
فَتَنَٰزَعُوٓاْ أَمۡرَهُم بَيۡنَهُمۡ وَأَسَرُّواْ ٱلنَّجۡوَىٰ ٦٢
So, they disputed over their affair among themselves and concealed their private conversation. (Tha Ha ; 62).
In terms, the meaning of the word Najwa is a whisper. So, if the word Najwa is used as a name for a woman, then the word means a woman who whispers or someone who whispers. But actually the word has many meanings. If the word is used as a name for a baby girl, then the meaning of the word is a woman who has beauty, gentleness, and a very good character.
Two; Aina (اْلَعْيَناءُ). Do you believe in Heaven? In Heaven there are so many angels named Aina. So, if you give the name “Aina” to your daughter, it means that you hope that your daughter has obedience to God, beauty, tenderness, and so forth, just like the angels in Heaven.
Three; Salsabila or Salsabel (سَلْسَبِيْلًا).
The meaning of the word Salsabila or Salsabel is gentle. We can also find that word in the Quran;
عَيۡنٗا فِيهَا تُسَمَّىٰ سَلۡسَبِيلٗا ١٨
[From] a fountain within Paradise named Salsabel. (Al-Insan [76; 18).
So, if you give the name “Salsabil or Salsabel” to your daughter, it means that you hope that your daughter has a soft heart and can give kindness to many people.
Four; Qanita (قَانِتَةٌ).
The meaning of the word Qanita is a devout woman. We can find that word in the Quran;
ٱلرِّجَالُ قَوَّٰمُونَ عَلَى ٱلنِّسَآءِ بِمَا فَضَّلَ ٱللَّهُ بَعۡضَهُمۡ عَلَىٰ بَعۡضٖ وَبِمَآ أَنفَقُواْ مِنۡ أَمۡوَٰلِهِمۡۚ فَٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتُ قَٰنِتَٰتٌ حَٰفِظَٰتٞ لِّلۡغَيۡبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ ٱللَّهُۚ وَٱلَّٰتِي تَخَافُونَ نُشُوزَهُنَّ فَعِظُوهُنَّ وَٱهۡجُرُوهُنَّ فِي ٱلۡمَضَاجِعِ وَٱضۡرِبُوهُنَّۖ فَإِنۡ أَطَعۡنَكُمۡ فَلَا تَبۡغُواْ عَلَيۡهِنَّ سَبِيلًاۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيّٗا كَبِيرٗا ٣٤
Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what God would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advise them; [then if they persist], force them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand. (An-Nisa ; 34).
Five; Naura al-Qanita (نَوْرَةٌ اْلَقانِتَةُ).
The meaning of the word Naura (Nura or Nur) is light. So, if you make the word “Naura al-Qanita” the name for your daughter, then the meaning of the word is “Light of the Obedient Woman”.
Six; Tania al-Qanita (ثَانِيَةٌ اْلَقانِتَةٌ).
The meaning of the word Tania or Tsania is the second. This is perfect if used as a name for a second daughter. So, if you make the word “Tania al-Qanita” the name of your daughter, the meaning of the word is “Obedient Second daughter”.
Seven; Amina (آمِنَةٌ).
The meaning of the word Amina is a devout woman. The word also became the name of the Prophet’s mother. So, if you make the word “Amina” your daughter’s name, then that means you hope that your daughter can be an obedient, good, and lucky woman like the Prophet Muhammad’s mother.
