    The name Yusra is mentioned 4 times in the Quran, in addition to the two verses stated it is also mentioned in 94:5 and 94:6

    This name is also mentioned in 18:88

    Unfortunately what both of you said is incorrect. The word you are referring to is “Yusr”, which in some contexts can be read as “Yusra”, the same way that Muhammad can be read as “Muhammada” in some contexts, and Maryam can be read as Maryama.

    As for the actual word Yusra, it is used only twice in the Quran. If the word Yusr is at the end of a verse, it is written as يُسرا, while if the name Yusra is at the end of a verse, it is written as يسرًى. They have the same pronunciation, but the first one doesn’t “own” the “a” sound at the end and loses it out of context, while the second one has the “a’ sound at the end as part of the word.

    We like the name Yusairah for our baby girl. And we have read the name is a diminutive of the name Yusra. Can you confirm this? Also, is Yusairah a good name to have?

  5. on Friday 6th of February 2015 07:59:03 PM

    Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,

    Yusairah does sound like it could be the diminutive of Yusrah (not Yusra). It is an acceptable name and it would have the same meaning as Yusrah.

    my name is yousra, the way the name is written in arabic here is incorrect… this way it means (left hand side) which is not a good thing…. yousra in arabic ends with the letter A or Alef. not alef layenah… it is a popular mistake and changes the meaning. actually the write name is “yosr” it means ease… the added A in the end is just an addition

    It is not forbidden to name your baby girl as Yusra.

    As for restricting naming a baby with the name Yassar (which means ease) and the like, then the restriction is only to indicate that it is not a desirable name, as clarified by the scholars, but it is not prohibited. The reason for this restriction is to prevent anything leading to people feeling pessimistic or seeing good omens (because of the name). If it is asked: Is Yassar present? And the answer is: ‘No’, then some people might become pessimistic and think that ease and goodness do not exist, as some narrations of the Hadeeth indicated.

    Some scholars stated that the restriction was made because the Quraysh have just abandoned the Jaahiliyyah (the pre-Islamic era of ignorance) and polytheism and were new in Islam, and it was pessimistic and seeing bad omens was their habit. However, if this does not exist, then the restriction no longer applies.

  42. on Thursday 18th of April 2019 04:33:16 PM

    my name is Yusraa. my father’s is Yousouf. I named after him. i also have an older brother. when he was born, my mother always told me that my father and him did not know what was sleep for one year but when i was born, it was as if and angel had blessed me because i was a very good child. now i understand why i was like that. i also know that i have brought peace in a lot places but no one could make me at ease. i am patiently waiting for someone to appear in my life and give me solutions. i may put people at ease easily but when it comes to myself, i don’t know what to do. well i know that i am lucky to be born. my name means ease and my surname means the day of Jummah. i really am lucky to have such great names.

  43. on Friday 19th of April 2019 04:53:22 AM

    “Fa’inna ma’al -`usri yusraa.”
