We chose Anabia for my niece but are confused about its meaning. Somewhere it's door of paradise and somewhere Allah ki Taraf rajoo Kerna.


This is an official answer by Staff

Anabia is not an Arabic/Quranic word, on many Pakistani websites this name is wrongly mentioned as a Quranic word. The correct Quranic word is Anaba, and it means "he/she made repentance and returned to Allah" as you wrote. None of the doors of Paradise have a name like this.

Anaba can be used as a name, though it is more common to use its noun version of Muneeb for boys and Muneebah for girls (meaning someone who repents and returns to Allah). In Quran 11:75 Allah SWT describes prophet Ibrahim with this name.

Indeed Ibrahim is most forebearing, most tender-hearted, and intent upon turning to God again and again.
