Thank you so much. i was so happy to see your reply! i dont understand this ROOT thing. i mean i guess Bareera has got the same root as Mabrurah. But unlike Barrah or Mabrurah, it is acceptable and was the name of a Sahabiya. Nobody objected to that i think. anyways, i know i am lacking somewhere in the knowledge that you people or the scholars have. I have resolved to another name. “Aalifa Ghaneem”….Is it recommended?? thanks for your help.
