Meaning of Sama

Sama is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “her status was raised”, “she became exalted”, “she became honored”. The difference between this name and Samaa (sky) is that Sama has the emphasis on the first syllable (SAma), while Samaa‘s emphasis is on the second syllable (saMAA). Sama is derived from the S-M-A root (“high status”, “sky”, “name”) which is used in many places in the Quran.

Then is He who is a maintainer of every soul, [knowing] what it has earned, [like any other]? But to Allah they have attributed partners. Say, “Name them. Or do you inform Him of that which He knows not upon the earth or of what is apparent of speech?” Rather, their [own] plan has been made attractive to those who disbelieve, and they have been averted from the way. And whomever Allah leaves astray – there will be for him no guide. (Quran 13:33)

    Allah swt says in Surah Al Araf verse 40: abwab-us-sama. This means doors of heaven. Is the name Sama not a direct Quranic name?
