Meaning of Inaya

Inaya is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means help, care, protection. It is derived from the Ain-W-N root which is used in many places in the Quran, including Surat al-Fatihah.

It is You we worship, and upon You we call for help. (Quran 1:5)

And seek help through patience and prayer, and most surely it is a hard thing except for the humble ones (Quran 2:45)

You who believe, seek help through patience and prayer; surely, God is with the steadfast. (Quran 2:153)

    My baby’s name is Inara. She left us after 9 days. Her name derives from Nur (light). After 24 days, I adopted a baby named Inaya. She’s the help from Allah to us, to recover from the loss of a child. And thank you for giving us ideas for Inara.

    I happen to teach in a christian school( I am a hindu and there are muslims too) and I happened to meet a young student from class 3 because we travel together along with the student’s mother. I asked the student the meaning of her name and she said she didn’t know but the mother answered. Inaya means the one who was created by God from the bones of the Hip! Only christians believe this and I was surprised to hear it from a Muslim woman! Can some one explain this to me!
