Assalamu Alaikum Dearest Bhaiya Mufti Saheb, After thanking Allah for all His continual help, I would like to thank all involved with this site. May Allah bless you and your families. My questions are: 1) What the the name Moshik (or Mushiq) Ur-Rahman mean? 2) Is the girl’s name Tahmin/Tahmina islamically acceptable, and what does it mean? Jazak-Allahu Khair, Khuda Hafiz.
Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatuhu
1. Mushik is an Arabic word from the root word ‘Shaq’ which means to find
someone or something eager or yearning. Mushiq-ur-Rahmaan means who finds
Rahmaan (Allah) eager. We advise that Mushtaq (one who is eager / yearning)
to be substituted for Mushiq.
2. Tahmin or Tahmina – we are unable to locate an entry for this word in our
dictionaries. The closest entry from the same root word is ‘Hamna’ or
‘Hamnaan’ meaning a small tick (used in the Arabic languages as a term of endearment)
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
