Meaning of Asma

Asma is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means exalted, high, great. It is the name of the daughter of Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, the closest companion of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his companions. It is derived from the S-M-A root (it became exalted, it became high, he/she named something) which is used in the Quran in a lot of places and the root for words like Samaa’ (sky) and Ism (name).

‘Zakariyya, We bring you good news of a son whose name shall be Yahya. We have not given such a name to anyone before.’ (Quran 19:7)

Allah – there is no deity except Him. To Him belong the best names. (Quran 20:8)

The Prophet said, “My Lord knows whatever is said throughout the heaven and earth, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.” (Quran 21:4)

There are two versions of Asma, both of which have the same meaning. One of them has a pause at the end: Asmaa’, the other is free at the end without a pause: Asmaa. It is up to you whichever pronunciation you choose. Since most people don’t know how to pronounce Arabic pauses (known as hamzah), it might be best to choose the simpler name of Asma over Asmaa’.

    I am an Arabic native speaker but really never knew the real meaning of my name, until I came across this by coincidence. I am honestly so proud of my name now 🙂

    I ❤️ this site. So helpful mashAllah. We are planning to name our daughter Esma if we ever have a girl. We live in England and everyone I’ve mentioned it to loves it. In Turkish it is not only a form of Asma but also comes from ‘Esma ul Husna’ which are the 99 names of Allah. Therefore it also has the meaning ‘attributes of God’ which me and my husband love.

    My name is Asma and it means “Name”
    I think this definition is wrong and is incorrect. I have asked about my name and they say it means “Name”
