Meaning of Inshirah

Inshirah is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “when the heart becomes open”, “relief”, “relaxation”, “cheer”. It is derived from the SH-R-H6 root that is used in many places in the Quran. Inshirah is also used as a name for chapter 94 of the Quran, which starts with “Did we not open your heart for you?”.

Anyone whose heart God has opened up to Islam possesses a light from his Lord. But woe betide those whose hearts have been hardened against the rememberance of God! Such people are in obvious error. (Quran 39:22)
