Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
CAN U PLS TELL ME THE MEANINGS OF THIS NAMES,
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
FATHIMA: The literal meaning of the term Fatimah means weaning, and was the name the Prophet (saws) chose to assign to one of his beloved daughters.
NAZIA: literally means pride.
RUQAIYA: The term Ruqaiyyah is an elative of the Arabic term Ruqya which means a spell or a charm; and Ruqiyyah was the name the Prophet (saws) chose to assign to one of his beloved daughters.
ATHAR: literally means one who is neat and clean.
ASIF: literally means an able and capable minister
SHAVUL: Not an Arabic term.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
