Question:


Can anyone name her baby girl as yashfeen


Answer:


Bismillah


Names given to the child should be good and meaningful.  On the Day of Judgement people will be called by their names and the name of the fathers.  Therefore, a good name must be chosen.  (Sunan Abi Dawud. p.328 v.2)


Also keeping good names has a good effect of the person as equally as keeping a bad, unmeaningful name will have a bad effect on the person.  (Aapke Masaail p.44 v.7)


Regarding your question, Yashfeen or Yashfeeni means “Allah is the one who treats me” i.e. when one is ill.


It will be best to keep the girls name from the route word Yashfeeni which is “Shifa” which means: recovery, healing or cure.


Only Allah Knows Best
