My name is Amtul but i don`t know the meaning of my name
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:
my name is Amtul but i don`t know the meaning of my name. And nobidy in the house knows the proper meaning.
please i`ll highly be grateful to you if you answer my question A.S.A.P

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 no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Just as the term ‘Abd’ in the Arabic language means a ‘slave’ who is of the male gender, the term ‘Amat’ in the Arabic language means a slave who is of a female gender.
Thus ‘Amtul’ by itself would mean ‘a female slave of ?’; but the correct and more appropriate name should be assigned as ‘Amtulaah’ meaning a female slave of Allah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
