Meaning of Zikra
Zikra is a direct Quranic name for girls that means “memory”, “recollection”, “thoughts of the past”, “remembrance”. The word Zikra is used about 20 times in the Quran.
Is it not sufficient for them that We have sent you down the Book to be recited to them? In this surely there is a blessing and a remembrance for a people who believe. (Quran 29:51)
Those [the previous prophets] were the people whom God guided. Follow their guidance then and say, ‘I ask no reward for this from you: it is only a remembrance for all mankind.’ (Quran 6:90)
In standard Arabic, Zikra pronounced with a “th” sound at the beginning, similar to the word “that” in English. But since this is difficult to pronounce, most Arabs pronounce with it with a “z” sound (many Arabic dialects don’t even have a “th” sound in any word). To keep things simple and easy, it is best to spell and pronounce this name with a Z instead of the less comon Th and Dh.
