Meaning of Names
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.
Nurun means light of,
Nahar means day,and Begum in Persian or Urdu means a woman. Thus Nurun Nahar Begum would mean the woman of the day light.
If Samrina is written with the Arabic letter Saad, then it would mean a fruit; and if written with the Arabic letter Seen it would mean one with a brownish color or a story teller.
Asiya in Arabic means a solid foundation or pillar and was also the name of the pious and righteous wife of the evil Pharoah.
Sara literally means pure and happy and was also the name of the first wife of the Noble Messenger and Choicest Friend of Allah, Prophet Ibraheem (a.s.).
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.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
