Meaning name Zahran
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.
In the Arabic language whenever the suffix ‘…aan’ is added to a word at its end, it portrays its superlative tense…..for example:
- ‘Atash’ means thirsty…. ‘Atshaan’ is used to portray one who is thirsty to the extreme!
- ‘Rahm’ means mercy…. ‘Rahmaan’ is used to portray one who is merciful to the extreme!
Similarly, the literal meaning of ‘Zahra’ in Arabic is a flower, or beautiful…..and ‘Zahraan’ would thus be its superlative tense meaning one who is extremely beautiful.
The name ‘Zahraan’ could be used for a person as well as a tribe.
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,
