pls could you tell me the meaning of tahreem and is it a good name to keep for a girl


This is an official answer by Staff

Tahreem or Tehreem is the name of a chapter in the Quran and means "prohibition", "prevention", something that's haram (forbidden). It is not a good name since it implies sins and hardship. It is the name of a chapter of the Quran, which is why some people use it, however the name does not refer to a good concept, as the chapter is admonishing the Prophet ﷺ for forbidding himself things that God has made lawful to him.

You are not forbidden from using this name, but we recommend that you do not use it since it doesn't have a good meaning.

    I named my daughter Tehreem Fatima. In my language, I was told it means ” sacred “. She is 6 years old now and her name is already on her pass port and other documents. What should I do ? It’s too late to change her name now.

    Scholars advise that there is no need to change the name of a person if later it is found out that the name doesn’t have a good meaning. Since she is now known by the name Tehreem, she should keep this name to avoid the hardship of changing it.

    When we say a name is not recommended, it only applies to naming new babies.

    Since you named her Tehreem thinking it means “sacred”, this is the meaning of the name for her, since a word’s meaning depends on our intention.

    I had my name tehreem till I was 8 years old. Tgen my parent consult some big scholars of Pakistan and Saudia and both requested to change it which my parents did alhumdulillah. Itsbetter if someo e has this name change it, because word tehreem is arabic which means forbidden and no parent would like to call their child forbidden 🙂

  25. on Wednesday 2nd of August 2017 04:05:38 PM

    As salaamu alaikum,

    I would just like to add and clarify that for everyone saying Tahreem is a “good” name because it is in the Quran, please do your research (i.e.- read the translation). Yes, it certainly is in the Quran, but in the Quran, Sūrat at-Taḥreem (Arabic: سورة التحريم‎‎) is the Chapter on “Banning, Prohibition”. There are many lessons in the Quran, of good, bad, haraam, and halaal. As scholars have said, please do not give your daughters this name. And Allah knows best.

    i am tehreem,,,,,,,word tehreem is basically derived from haram,,,the holy KABA,,,,that means respectful and holy,,,tehreem means the one to be respected,,,in urdu it means muqaddas paak izzatdaar

  27. on Wednesday 25th of October 2017 02:57:21 PM

    Assalamalikum dear all. The chapter Surah Tahreem is part of Quran of course. But it is not the rule that anything comes in Quran is good. It depends on situation and tafseer. Abhu Lahab is also mention,feroun is also mentioned. Tahreem means prohibited. Kisi cheez ko apne upar haram karna Jo ki halal hai. Allah Kay pyare Rasool sws. sahed(honey) phir na khane ki baat farmate hai, ki Mai phir sahed(honey) nahi khaonga. Jub Allah subanhu taala ne yah surah nazil Farmaya jis ki shuruwat hi ayesi hui. Aay payre Nabi kyun apne ap per woh jeez haram karte ho Jo ki humne halal farmai hai………Allah knows best. Koi galti hui to Allah maaf kare. Mai koi alim ya mufti nahi Allah muaf kare. Naam badi cheez hai baap ka farz hai ki Acha naam rakhe. Naam ka Adar zindagi per padta hai isii liye ache naam rakha karo..

    Tahreem name means the successful or the winner. This girl’s name. Origin of roots and names is associated with Arabic language. The meaning of the name is good and the parent can name Tahreem the daughter of their newborn baby. Even you can recommend this name to ones who are going to be daddy soon.

    Assalam ek bhai ne apne comment me likha hai ke quran me kuch chize hai jo its depends on situation and i totally agree with him.quran e paak me kuch chize humari maloomat ke liye banai gai hai aur kuch hume sikhane ke liye hume chahiye ke uss per amal kare….jaise ke koi apne bachi ka naam rakhta hai iram aur uss ka matlab hai hum samajhte hai ke jannat to bohat acha meaning hai laikin hum jab tafseer se maloom karenge to hum ko pta chale ga ke

  38. on Friday 11th of August 2023 08:20:41 AM

    Quran e paak me iram naam hai jo kai sare log rakhte hai jis ka matlab hai jannat laikin jab hum tafseer se maloom karenge to hum ko pata chalega ke iram ka matlab jannat hai laikin wo jannat jisko firon ne banaya tha qurane paak me kuch chize hai jo maloomat ke liye banai gai hai aur kuch sikhne ke liye hum ko chahiye ke hum pehle ye samje ke kya negetive hai aur kya positive….kyunki naam ek aisi chiz hai jis se humari pehchan hoti hai to pehle hum ko ye samaj na chahiye uss je bad naam rakhna chahiye sirf quran me aya hai to sahi hai bata nai sakte…pehle tafseer dekhle ke wo positive ke liye tha ya negetive ke koi parents to yehi chahte hai ke apne bache ko ache se ache meaning wala naam de .
