This is the name of lady ladies of the world. He is like the holy Mary. He is the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, whose religion and companionship are complete with him. He is the most sacred lady and the prince of all the women of the world. He is light. He makes happiness. Good source. She is the real queen. Many of the world do not know this. This is unfortunate. He is the most innocent of men from the beginning to the end of creation. She is mother. People go to him for a better life and for solving their own problems. Real miracle. He and his holy family in every way you think are the best of creatures. They love love. The world can not understand all of them. The wisdom must grow. But they are so magnanimous and generous.

This is my own name. I adore it, despite the constant mispronunciations. It also means "fair-skinned" in Hindi.

As a person with the name Zahra, I have noticed that it is mispronounced a lot. I get called "Zahara," "Sarah," and of course the English pronunciation "Zair-uh." Keep in mind, that it may be hard for others to understand the pronunciation in certain areas, such as ones that aren't as culturally diverse in the US. It may be different for other places, but as I live in a very diverse place in the US, it still gets mispronounced. Keep it in mind.

Zahra is my middle name, and it's also the name of my great-great-grandmother. It's a gorgeous name.

I think this is a gorgeous name. It's exotic but still accessible.

Zahra was also another name for Fatima, the daughter of Prohpet Mohammed. Most of the time she's called Fatimat-el-Zahra.
