Meaning of Umair

Umair is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “life” and “long-lived”. It is derived from the Ain-M-R root which is used in many places in the Quran. Umair is also the name of a brave Sahabi (companion of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his companions), whose full name was Umair bin Wahb.

But We raised many generations after Moses and they lived for many years. You did not dwell with the people of Midian reciting Our revelations to them, but We had certainly sent Messengers to them. (Quran 28:45)

    nam kuch bhi ho insan k aamal uski taqdeer likhte h ..

    aur jo log apne baccho k liye nam dhund rahe ho to aik baat yad rakhna acche akhlaq acche insan banate h
    so apne baccho ko acche akhlaq sikhao ,
    sirf bado ki izzat karne wala nahi har aik ki izzat karne wala banao…
    allah ham sab ko amal ki taufeeq de
