Meaning of Ibtisam

Ibtisam is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means smiling, to smile. It is derived from the B-S-M root which is used in the Quran in Surat an-Naml:

Solomon smiled broadly at its words and said, ‘Lord, inspire me to be thankful for the blessings You have granted me and my parents, and to do good deeds that please You; and include me, by Your grace, among Your righteous servants!’ (Quran 27:19)

    My name is Btissam, which is a common spelling of Ibtisam in North African countries. As you may notice, no “i” or “e” is at beginning, this is due to the fact that the “hamza” in the Arabic spelling is “hamzat wasl” and not “hamzat kat3”, as mentioned in this page.
