Nuriyah is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “radiant”, “brilliant”. It is derived from the N-W-R Quranic root.
He it is Who appointed the sun a splendour and the moon a light, and measured for her stages, that ye might know the number of the years, and the reckoning. Allah created not (all) that save in truth. He detaileth the revelations for people who have knowledge. (Quran 10:5)
