Meaning of names tasneem,alifiya,fatema,nafisa

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.


Tasneem:  Tasneem is the name of a spring in Paradise as stated in the Glorious Quran Chapter 83 Surah Mutaffefeen verse 27:

27      With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasneem;

28      A spring from (the waters), whereof drink those Nearest to Allah.


Alifiyah: ‘Alf’ means one thousand in the Arabic language,  thus ‘Alifyah’ means in a thousand.


Fatemah: Fatemah is derived from the name of the beloved daughter of the Messenger of Allah (saws),  Hadrat Fatemah binte Mohammed (r.a.);  and its literal meaning is one who is innocent.


Murtuza: The correct spelling of the name is ‘Murtadha’,  and it means something or someone that is liked.


Nafisah: Nafisah is derived from the Arabic root word ‘nafees’ which means refined,  or pure, or precious, or delicate.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
