Meaning of Sahira

Sahira is a Quranic name for girls with many meanings:

  • A person who spends the night without sleep, especially when taking care of a sick person or in worship.
  • The moon
  • The surface of the earth, especially a flat plain (land without trees or mountains).
  • A spring or fountain of water that flows year-round.

They say, ‘What? shall we be brought back to life,
even after we have turned into decayed bones?’
and they say, ‘That indeed would be a losing return.’
But all it will take is a single blast,
and behold! They will all come out fully awake (or standing in the open plain).

    @1: The Sahira name on this page is completely different from the word you mean, though in English they are both written as Sahira. The name on the current page is a good name and has no relationship to witchcraft.
