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 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 Arabic term ‘Naziah’ means pride.
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.
The Arabic term ‘Athar’ would mean something which is neat and clean.
The Arabic term ‘Irfaan’ would mean gratefulness.
The Arabic term ‘Naser’ would mean a supporter and protector.
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,
