    Assalam O Alaikum

    Alhumdulillah we have been blessed with e baby girl and its the foremost important thing for the parents to give her a nice name. Unfortunately I am confused
    between Zara and Zahra. I have decided on Zahra but does the pronounciation becomes different to that of Zahra. I know the meaning is different and I want to go with ‘H’ included but the question has now been the pronounciation – in short could it be pronounced as traditional name ZARA or with there be a sound of H necessary?
    Would really appreciate your input.
    JazakAllah Khair

    Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,

    The “h” sound in the middle of a word (as in Zahra) is necessary. But if it is at the end, like Zarah, it can be removed, thus Zarah and Zara are the same name.
