My name is sahar but people pronunced it as sehar
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:
my name is sahar but people pronunced it as sehar and in my matric certificate there is written sehar and in all my degrees namewritten is sehar tell what are the consequences of my name plz im worried about my name plz ans me thanks
(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 sahar
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.
The meaning of the Arabic term ‘Sahar’ meanings morning, and is a perfectly good and acceptable name in Islam
But if the term is pronounced ‘Seher’, then the meaning of the term would mean magic.
Your Question: tell what are the consequences of my name plz im worried about my name plz ans me
Dear and beloved brother in Islam, know and believe with total and absolute conviction that the name of a person is only a form of recognition and the name by itself has absolutely no consequence on the life or condition or characteristic of a person. It is the belief and the deeds of the person which will determine his outcome, not the name which is assigned to a person!
For example, ‘Salmaan’ (Al-Farsi) was the name of one of the noble companions of the Noble Prophet (saws), whose belief and sacrifices for Allah and His deen were so accepted that the Messenger of Allah (saws) would say about this noble companion:
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: ‘Salmaan (Al-Farsi) is from amongst my ‘ahlal-bayt’ (my household)’
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 6225 Narrated by Anas ibn Malik
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Paradise is desirous of three people: Ali (ibn Abi Taalib), Ammar (bin Yassir) and Salman (Al-Farsi)."
But when the same exact name is applied or appointed to Salman (Rushdie), the contemporary author who chose to blaspheme against Prophet Mohamed (saws) and Islam in his evil writings….it is not the name which is evil, but the person and his actions which are heinous!
The noble Salman (Al-Farsi (r.a.)), because of his belief and deeds will remain noble and honored regardless of his assigned name; and Salman (Rushdie), because of his state of belief and deeds will be accursed regardless of his assigned name (unless of course, he were to seek sincere repentance from the Lord Most Merciful before his death).
Thus beloved brother, regardless of whether people call you by your given name ‘Sahar’, or choose to call you ‘Seher’ in ignorance, rest assured that the name by itself does not have the ability to bring good or evil upon anyone….believe with total and absolute conviction that no good and no evil can befall anyone without the precise Will and Permission of your Lord and Creator, Allah Subhanah wa Taala.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verses 106-107:
And do not call besides Allah, any being that can neither do you any good nor any harm. For if you will do so, you shall be one of the doers of wrong. If Allah afflicts you with a calamity, there is none to remove it, but He Himself. Likewise, if Allah wills to bestow a favor on you, there is none to withhold Allah’s bounty. He bestows His bounty on anyone of His servants He wills. And He is The Forgiving, The Merciful.
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,
