I would like to know the meaning of the name Saahil
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:
I would like to know the meaning of the name Saahil and whether to name my child Saahil is appropriate or not?
(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.)
Meaning name saahil
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.
The meaning of the Arabic term Saahil depends on how it is spelt and pronounced:
If the term Saahil is spelt using the 6th Arabic alphabet (ha), then the term would mean easy, smooth, etc.
But if the term Saahil is spelt using 3rd-last Arabic alphabet (ha), then the term would mean a sea-shore or coast-line.
Any term in any language which does not have a particularly derogative or evil meaning, or it does not connote shirk or disbelief, is appropriate and acceptable as a name in Islam; and Saahil is a perfectly acceptable name, if one wishes to keep or appoint so.
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,
