Meaning of Zahran

Zahran is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means radiant, glowing, and blossoming. It is derived from the Z-H26-R (flower, splendor) root which is used in a number of places

And never turn thine, eyes [with longing] towards whatever splendor of this world’s life We may have allowed so many others to enjoy in order that We might test them thereby: for the sustenance which thy Lord provides [for thee] is better and more enduring. (Quran 20:131)

    “Zahra” (flower) is found in this passage, not “Zahran”. It’s a stretch to claim the Arabic word “Zahran” is indirectly Quranic just because it’s somehow related to a word (“Zahra” – flower) which by coincidence is somewhere found in the Quran. By that logic, every word in the Arabic language could be claimed to be indirectly Quranic.
