Meaning of Zuhair

Zuhair is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “little flower”, “blossom”. It is derived from the Z-H-R root which is used in a number of places in the Quran.

And never turn thine, eyes [with longing] towards whatever splendor of this world’s life We may have allowed so many others to enjoy in order that We might test them thereby: for the sustenance which thy Lord provides [for thee] is better and more enduring. (Quran 20:131)

    This is wrong?
    Zaheer and zuhair are same meaning. Bright

    It means brightness; brilliance. Not little flower. Just like the Hebrew variant Zohar.

    This is wrong. That is زَہِیر. Which means گُلِ لولہ

    زُہیر Comes from زُہرہ. Which is the name of planet Venus because of brightness.

    I’m over 55 years of age, I’m Catholic and was born in Jordan. Zuhair is a common name among Christian as well.

    When with ظ followed by H & R, then the meaning is brightness or clearly evident
    When with ز followed by H & R, then the meaning is flower or blossoming
    The confusion is because In English Z represents both ظ and ز

    This is wrong, search it up, Zuahir means brightness.
