Meaning of Dania

Dania is an direct Quranic name for girls that means “close”, “near”. The Quran uses Dania it when speaking of the fruits and the shade of the trees of Paradise, saying that the fruit of the trees are close and within reach always.

since its [blissful] shades will come down close over them, and low will hang down its clusters of fruit, most easy to reach. (Quran 76:14)

    My daughter’s name is Dania Fatimah.
    In Arabic, Dania means near/close as mentioned and in Hebrew means God is my Judge. Thus the name Dania is special.
    And of course Fatimah is another great name in Islam world as it is a name of our beloved Prophet Muhamad saw daugther.

    Riyah in Arabic means “wind”. In Quran it was mentioned in the majority of places as a sign and carrier of the good givings from Allah. In little places it was mentioned as a strong wind to punish the non believers. It was as well mentioned in few places as a way to bring good news like when the prophet Jacob felt from it that the prophet Joseph is still alive. In general the meaning is nice in Arabic
