    My baby’s name is Inara. She left us after 9 days. Her name derives from Nur (light). After 24 days, I adopted a baby named Inaya. She’s the help from Allah to us, to recover from the loss of a child. And thank you for giving us ideas for Inara.

    I happen to teach in a christian school( I am a hindu and there are muslims too) and I happened to meet a young student from class 3 because we travel together along with the student’s mother. I asked the student the meaning of her name and she said she didn’t know but the mother answered. Inaya means the one who was created by God from the bones of the Hip! Only christians believe this and I was surprised to hear it from a Muslim woman! Can some one explain this to me!

    I read on the other website inaya means solicitude or concern. But at the same time it is gift from Allah. So which one is the truth meaning

  24. on Saturday 20th of April 2019 06:43:32 PM

    Assalamu alaikum wrwb..
    Inaya word is indirectly mentioned in Qur’an.
    Actually the root word of “Inaya” is same as that of “nasta’een”word..,which is “ain,waw,noon”..
    (Iyyaka na’abudu wa iyyaka nasta’een)
    Which means help..

  25. on Monday 20th of May 2019 02:39:48 AM

    It should be spelt Inaaya as I have searched many sites and spelt like this it means gift from God do your research people. This is correct spelling.

  26. on Saturday 25th of May 2019 04:45:46 AM

    ASSALAMUALAIKUM. Which can be added to inaaya as surname so that the meaning becomes gift of Allah, protection of Allah. Please suggest.

  27. on Friday 30th of August 2019 03:35:58 PM

  30. on Tuesday 9th of June 2020 01:23:42 PM

    Inaaya is a right spelling. Masha Allah bahut khoob surat naam hai. Yani Allah ki inayat, tohfa.

    Inaya is not in the Arabic language. You will not find any native Arab speaker use this name. It also does not mean gift of god.
