Meaning of Duriya

Duriya is an indirect Quranic name for girls. It means radiant, brilliant, shining, dazzling. It is derived from the D-R-R root which is used in the Quran in Surat an-Noor.

Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth; a likeness of His light is as a niche in which is a lamp, the lamp is in a glass, (and) the glass is as it were a brightly shining star, lit from a blessed olive-tree, neither eastern nor western, the oil whereof almost gives light though fire touch it not– light upon light– Allah guides to His light whom He pleases, and Allah sets forth parables for men, and Allah is Cognizant of all things. (Quran 24:35)
