The name “Barrah”

Q: Are we allowed to keep the name barrah. I read it’s not permissible. Is that correct and also what is the meaning of barrah and can the name Arham be kept for a boy?


A: You should avoid keeping these names. 

Bareerah is the fruit of the arak tree.

Rather keep the name Aslam.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
