Kindly let me know the meaning of Aliza, its origin.




Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


Aliza is a Jewish name which means joyful. It would not be appropriate to keep it since people may think she is a Jew. We should strive to keep those names which will distinguish our children from those of other religions. It is also more meritorious to keep the names of the wives of Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم , Sahabiyyaat radiAllahu anhunna or pious ladies of the past. You may keep the name Asiya, Aisha, Amina, Akifa, Aneesah, Aanisa, etc…


And Allah knows best
