    It’s not pronounced A-SHAAR, it’s pronounced “A-shər” so the spelling “Asher” is best. I’ve seen the spelling Ashir on some muslim websites.

    I agree with the person who says “It’s not pronounced A-SHAAR, it’s pronounced “A-shər” so the spelling “Asher” is best” –

    This spelling listed on here is not recommended as it makes you pronounce this name incorrectly.

    Hope I helped anyone who was confused. 🙂
