    Title: Is the name "Amal Junaid" correct for my daughter?

    Question: Is the name "Amal Junaid" correct for my daughter? Amal means hope in arabic. Someone told me that this word "AMAL" came in Quran so many times but always with Shaitan, please need your kind suggestion.

    The combination of Amal Junaid does not seem to be proper for a girl?s name. Junaid is a male name, and if her father?s name is Junaid, then it means that her name is only ?Amal?. You are advised not to keep this name, rather you should choose any of the names of pious women from Sahabiyat and wives of the Prophet, صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم.
