Meaning of Iliya

Iliya is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “belonging to those who are noble”, “belonging to the high class”, a person who comes from a respected class of society. It also means “those who belong to Illiyyeen“, which is the highest place in Paradise. It is derived from the AIN-L-A root which is used in many places in the Quran.

Limitless is He in His glory, and sublimely, immeasurably exalted above anything that men may say [about Him] (Quran 17:43)
