(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 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.
Rafat: the literal meaning of the Arabic term Rafat is one who is happy.
Afsha: means aids of adornment or beauty
Mariam: Maryam was the name assigned to one of the most chaste and noblest women who ever graced this planet earth, the mother of the Noble Messenger of Allah, Hadrat Isa ibn Maryam (a.s.). The term Maryam itself is not an Arabic term and most probably derived from the Hebrew language.
Faraan: The literal meaning of the Arabic term Farhaan is one who is happy or joyful.
Rehaan: literally means a king.
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,
