My daughter’s name is Afia Ibnat. Is it correct according to our Shariat?
Please tell me the Meaning of this name.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 582/471/B=04/1435)

Afiya means: a woman who is protected against worldly problems and diseases, while Ibnat is not a meaningful word; therefore you should replace it with a suitable one.
