In trying to find the Arabic meaning of the name Halima (I know the origin of the name), I googled it.  What came on the internet is amazing!  From the origin of the name as baby name, to historical figures (ladies) and events in history to modern day Halima's here is what I found.  Really amazing!

Now this leaves me, the ordinary Halima among many other ordinary Halimas and certainly not Halima the belly dancer or of the dance school.  Phew!


The Almighty Allah says,

"When a servant thinks of Me, I am near.
When he invokes Me, I am with him.
If he reflects on Me in secret, I reply in secret,
And if he acknowledges Me in an assembly,
I acknowledge him in a far superior assembly."

- Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reptd by Abu Huraira
