    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 724/720=N)

     

    Zunaira means: ‘girl wearing Zunnar (a thread worn by Hindus as symbol around waist)Â’. Aqsa means: ‘far awayÂ’. Sidrah means: ‘lote-tree (a thorny tree bearing fruit)Â’. The meaning of the first name is not correct, it should not be kept while the second and third name, though do not have improper meaning, are not human names, but if you keep these names it will be allowable.
