It is an ancient Arabic name for girls and the name of a number of Sahabiyaat (pious women who lived at the time of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his companions), such as Soheimeh bint Aslam bint Huraysh bint Udayy, Soheimeh bint Masud bint Aws and Soheimeh bint Umair al-Ansariyya. Soheimeh is derived from the S-H26-M root which is used in verse 37:141 of the Quran:
