    Thank you, maybe I'll just change the spelling then :)

        Why? The name of Prophet Ibrahim's wife is spelled Sara/Sarah (or Saara). No need to change the spelling, in shaa Allaah.

            I double checked and you're right it's سارة (Sarah) and not زهرة (Sahra), that's a different name.

              Better to give oneself a muslim name. One should shed the name associated with kaafirs

              If the name has good meaning one can keep it but this is a conscientious thing. It's like converting really. One leaves behind their kaafir life including the name

                But it's not a must! If the name isn't Christian or Jewish or something that's associated with a particular religion, then it's perfectly fine to keep it.
                Not all names have to be Arabic in order to be good. Plus I know a few sisters who've kept their names, and still managed to change their lifestyles.

                  I understand sister but I read Islamic Scholar said its better to change it and my 'encouragement' to change is based on fitrah feeling

                      If you want, you could do a poll with all the names that you like and the forum could help you decide which one you'd be called

                          I think Abu Huraira :RA: because his original name meant something bad. I remember one of the Prophet's :saw: wives also changed her name to Zainab :RAA:

                          Not all of them did though.
                          Narrated Anas:
                          The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "None of you will have faith till he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself." [Bukhari]

                            I wanted to but I did not end up doing so.
                            Narrated Humaid: I heard Muawiya bin Abi Sufyan delivering a sermon. He said, "I heard the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, "If Allah wants to do a favor to somebody, He bestows on him, the gift of understanding the Qur'an and Sunna. I am but a distributor, and Allah is the Giver. The state of this nation will remain good till the Hour is established, or till Allah's Order comes." Sahih al-Bukhari

                              I did not change my name.

                              I did make sure to name my child a Muslim name.

                              I got a Kunyah automatically upon the birth of my child.

                              I prefer for fellow Muslims to refer to me by my Kunyah.

                                If you are going to remain Muslim, you should change your name
