Full Meaning of Citrah

Citrah is a direct Quranic name for girls, it refers to a tree in heaven that is mentioned twice in the Quran. It is also the name of a Sahabiyya (a pious woman who lived at the time of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his companions).

He certainly saw him (Gabriel) during his other ascent, by the lote tree beyond which none may pass, near which is Paradise. When the tree was covered with a covering, (Muhammad’s) eyes did not deceive him, nor did they lead him to falsehood. He certainly saw the greatest (signs) of the existence of his Lord. (Quran 53:13-18)
