Additional description of the name Fatima

Fatima or Fatimah is a female Arabic name that literally means: a woman who has weaned her baby from giving milk. Fatima is the name of Prophet Muhammad’s daughter. The prophet said I chose this name for my daughter because:

إِنَّمَا سُمِّيَتْ اِبْنَتِي فَاطِمَةَ لِأَنَّ اَللَّهَ عَزَّوَجَلَّ فَطَمَهَا وَ فَطَمَ مَنْ أَحَبَّهَا مِنَ اَلنَّارِ

the almighty God keeps the Fatima and those who love the lady far from fire. Imam Baqir (a.s) also stated: when my Jidda (my father's grandmother) Fatima was born, the almighty God revealed to an angel: inspire the name of Fatima into heart of the prophet, so this name is divinely and is sent by Allah. divine angels remember those who are Fatima respectfully and they and their wealth will be immune from difficulties of bad worldly accidents. Those with the name of Fatima enjoy good heart, intelligence and tranquility provided they remember lady Fatima and follow her pure way and be away from doing senior and major sins and try to be connected with her true theosophy and know it. O dear one who you are named Fatima be aware that the Fatima is beauty of God’s throne therefore if you are pure and resort to her, you can be also the beauty of God’s throne (before Allah) and the lady will guarantee your intercession. The girl who are Fatima are safe against human and Jinn harm. The messenger of Allah stated to Salman: O Salman those who love my daughter Fatima will be assisted in a hundred positions in hereafter like: in grave, moment of dying, the day of judgement, Serat bridge etc.

I'm Mexican, so the name is not as popular there as in The'states, which is cool because it makes It'sort of exotic. In Mexico people never'spell it wrong, but when I travel to English-speaking places some people have difficulty pronouncing it...instead of pronouncing the first syllable stronger (which is the correct way) they pronounce stronger the'second. In Spanish It's very easy because there's an "accent" on it, but in English these symbols don't exist so it gets annoying sometimes, hehe....but apart from that I think It's a very beautiful name and I would never change it for any other. I think it has character and yet a particular sweetness...

My names Fatima pronounced Fateema, didnt like my name growing up (thought it was a sad polynesian name) but one day when i was about 11 a teacher asked me if I was muslim. I thought this was strange as I am a Polynesian girl born and raised in New Zealand as a christian. As ignorant as I was about my name, only told that it was a catholic name. I finally found out that there are many places and religions in the world that uses this name. I think its awesome that I have the'same name as someone say in India, Africa, Mexico or Spain makes it exotic and not boring!!! And yip on occasion got the fat-tima joke...so what..stuff the haters lmao

Fatima's get teased with the name Fat, or Fatty, and It's not a good idea as the rates of childhood obesity increase all across the globe. Names that'start with "F" suck, so stay away. Trust me, my name is Fatima and I'm a teenager in 2018.

It is a beautiful name, and anyone who thinks it adds to the growing "obesity" rate, is crazy. How can a mean nickname have anything to do with that❤️❤️ Use your common sense. If you are ALREADY fat, try to stay healthy, and don't mind the mean names. I'mean have you such low self-esteem that a nickname bothe's you that much❤️❤️ Good grief.

I'm a Fatima, and when I was younger I really didn't like my name...mainly because no one else I knew had it, but also because the only references I ever'saw to it were religious. Now that I'm older, I love my name (which by the way does not mean daughter of the Prophet :P that's a person, not a meaning, and it is not derived from the Latin word for Faith.It's usually translated to mean "weaned/ one who is weaned/ to abstain/ one who abstains".) Thankfully, I never got any of the "Fat" jokes :)

Actually the root of the name is Latin and its derived from the Latin for Faith "Fatim". The meaning Isn't actually daughter of a prophet (i.e. before he was considered a prophet why would his daughter have that name❤️) It's also the name of a beautiful city in Portugal, and I know a couple of Portuguese who have relatives named Fatima (though its not the islamic version, more so the euro). Yeah the name is easy to tease but as i was always very petite it didn't bother me that much :P

It's my name, and the best name. Ever. i've never really had fat jokes b/c I'm thin, but I do go by "Fatty" or "Fat" or other'such variations. This is no surprise b/c most names get nicknames anyway. Well, at least I give people nicknames anyway. It's a beautiful name and means "captivating" as well as "stopping to wean/abstain."
