As salamoalekum,

Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


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

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

As a muslim it is our duty to name our children with names that are beloved to Allah and His Rasul صلى الله عليه وسلم. We have been asked to name our children with meaningful names. These names have an effect on the personality of the person. The best of names are those of the Ambiyaa, Sahaba and our Pious Predecessors. For female names, the best are of those who are held as virtuous in the sight of Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم and Sahaba radiallahuanhum . We suggest the following names:

Amatullah (female slave of Allah)

You have mentioned Alvira. What is its meaning and who keeps it normally? Please note that when we use such names which may put others in doubt of our religion, only we will be liable for that.


And Allah knows best
