Full Meaning of Umayra
Umayra is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “to perform Umrah“, which is the pilgrimage to the city of Makkah that is done outside of the Eid al-Adha period (if it is during Eid al-Adha then it is called Haj). The literal meaning of Umayra is “to visit”, “to tend”, “to enliven”. It is derived from the AIN-M-R root which is used in many places in the Quran.
Only he should visit or tend God’s houses of worship who believes in God and the Last Day, and is constant in prayer, and spends in charity, and stands in awe of none but God: for [only such as] these may hope to be among the right-guided! (Quran 9:18)
