Dear Mufti Saheb, Assalamu Alaikum.

I have a problem with my daughter's name. Since I liked the name and it sounded unique, I had selected this name. Now my daughter is grown up. But she has problems of personality and marriage. Every time a proposal comes, there is some hindrance in it. Given below are the names of my daughter, her mother & my name:

Daughter name: FAREESA HASSAN
Her mother's name: RUBINA HASSAN
Her father's name: MAHMOOD HASSAN

I want to find out:

1. What is the meaning of my daughter's name FAREESA?
2. Is this name suitable or not suitable?
3. Should I change her name?

Please reply to my above questions.
Thanks & regards

This is a suitable name. Fareesa means, prey. (Mukhtarus Sihah)

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
