    My name is also Nimra Zulfiqar. It’s a beautiful name and I’m rather proud to have such a name which means Lioness/Leopard. Also it’s the name of mosque. So people please, saying that it’s a bane of hardships and all. Hardship and Good Luck/Fortune of one person is already predestined by Allah so names and other things whatsoever won’t change it!
