Meaning of Ulya

Ulya is a direct Quranic name for girls that means “highest”, “supreme”, “sublime”. It is used in the Quran in Surat at-Tawbah:

If you will not aid him, Allah certainly aided him when those who disbelieved expelled him, he being the second of the two, when they were both in the cave, when he said to his companion: Grieve not, surely Allah is with us. So Allah sent down His tranquillity upon him and strengthened him with hosts which you did not see,and brought utterly low the cause of those who were bent on denying the truth, whereas the cause of God remained supreme: for God is almighty, wise. (Quran 9:40)
