Can i keep my Daughter name Alina? Is it acceptable?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
The name in reference is not an Arabic name and is un-Islamic.
It is advisable to keeps names of Ambiya (‘alayhimussalaam), Sahabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and pious predecessors.
For example, you may name your daughter: ‘Aaishah (عائشة), Zaynab (زينب), or Maryam(مريم) etc.
You may refer to our site for other suitable Islamic names.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
