Question: Names of my daughters
Assalamialaikum,

By the grace of Almighty I have been blessed with two daughters. They are 3 years and 1 year old respectively; I have searched over the internet sites and choose their names as "Sazma Anaum" and "Uzma Anaum" respectively; the meaning of those two names (According to those sites) are "The Beautiful Blessings of Allah" and "The Greatest Blessings of Allah" respectively. Now I am not sure if these names are Arabic names or not. Even these are not arabic and have been derived from some other language then are the names OK for their meanings? I think language is not at all a condition for names rather the meaning (what so ever the language is) is more important. Please let me know your well thought opinion on their names.

Assalamualaikum

Mohammad Zakaria Habib
