Meaning of Yusra

Yusra is a direct Quranic name for girls that means “ease” (opposite hardship), “comfort”, “blessedness”. It is used twice in the Quran, in verses 87:8 and 92:7.

and [thus] shall We make easy for thee the path towards [ultimate] ease. (Quran 87:8)

    The name Yusra is mentioned 4 times in the Quran, in addition to the two verses stated it is also mentioned in 94:5 and 94:6

    Unfortunately what both of you said is incorrect. The word you are referring to is “Yusr”, which in some contexts can be read as “Yusra”, the same way that Muhammad can be read as “Muhammada” in some contexts, and Maryam can be read as Maryama.

    As for the actual word Yusra, it is used only twice in the Quran. If the word Yusr is at the end of a verse, it is written as يُسرا, while if the name Yusra is at the end of a verse, it is written as يسرًى. They have the same pronunciation, but the first one doesn’t “own” the “a” sound at the end and loses it out of context, while the second one has the “a’ sound at the end as part of the word.

    Assalamualaykum,
    We like the name Yusairah for our baby girl. And we have read the name is a diminutive of the name Yusra. Can you confirm this? Also, is Yusairah a good name to have?

    Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,

    Yusairah does sound like it could be the diminutive of Yusrah (not Yusra). It is an acceptable name and it would have the same meaning as Yusrah.

    My name is Youssra (يسرى ). It’s a beautifull feminine name with an amazing meaning. A meaning that goes deeper than only ‘ease’. It’s the lesson of life Allah is teaching us and remembers us frequently.

    I’m happy and blessed that Allah named me Youssra (through my loving mother).

    my name is yousra, the way the name is written in arabic here is incorrect… this way it means (left hand side) which is not a good thing…. yousra in arabic ends with the letter A or Alef. not alef layenah… it is a popular mistake and changes the meaning. actually the write name is “yosr” it means ease… the added A in the end is just an addition

    My 4 year old daughter is called Yusra. When I fiund out I was pregnant even before knowing the gender I had in mind that if Allah blesses me with a girl I will name her Yusra for definite. I love her name and all my family and friends love it too even random people who hear her name have complimented her name Masha Allah
