    Title: Name

    Question: By the blessings of Almighty Allah, I got a new born baby girl. I want to keep her name as "SARAH SAJID". Is it permissible as per Shariah? One of my friend said, SARAH is a Christian name. Is he right?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 249/164/L=1434) You can name your daughter Sara. It is good name. It is the name of the wife of Hadhrat Ebrahim (عليه السلام), it is not correct to consider it a Christian name.
