Meaning of Salwa

Salwa is a direct Quranic name for girls that means “consolation”, “that which brings happiness”, “something that makes you forget your sadness and worries”. Salwa also refers to the bird known as quail in English. The word Salwa is used three times in the Quran.

O Children of Israel, We delivered you from your enemy, and We made an appointment with you at the right side of the mount, and We sent down to you manna and quails. (Quran 20:80)

    “Always consult your local imam or other knowledgeable individuals”. What a tight leash you muslims are kept on by your religious leaders. Unlucky for you.

    Why are you coming to an Islamic site if you are just going to spread hate? “Until you your religion and unto me my religion”

    I wouldn’t say it is necessary to contact the imaam to choose a name. We know our Islamic history. Keep things simple and name our children after the ambiyaa alaihimus salaam, or the sahaabah. Afterall, we want our children to emulate goodness don’t we? So we give good names in sha Allah. As for the critics wh9 take issue with US Muslims, ignore them or give them da3wah illallaah. Ilaa tauheed wassunah. Don’t take offense from their silly remarks. Perhaps Allah will guide them.
