Title: Name Aailyaa


Assalamualaikum, my name is Madiha Akbar. Im expecting a girl and I want to name her Eiliyah and her dad's name is Atif. I wanted to know how good the name is for her and also how to write it in Arabic. Is it supposed to be علیہ the ha as in Allah or الیہ? 

Jazaak Allah 


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

We make dua to Allah that he gives you healthy offspring.

The name is علية. In English, it is Aliyyah. It means high. The name is suitable.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
