When I was little, I always ask myself what's the meaning of 'Alina'. And to answer my very own question, I forced myself on browsing through many books related to 'collection of names in Islam'. Yet to no avail. Still, I had never gave up. When I had the chance, I did some research on it, searching on the internet; my favourite search engine; Mr. Google.
Until last year, only I really did found the real meaning of my name. That moment was beyond words as I found myself in the state of over-excitement I was like smiling from ear to ear; like the big-grin-emoticon that we use to have in Yahoo Messenger. Alhamdulillah, I found it and it's true when my dad said it has meanings.
The very first piece of information I knew about my name was it is originated from either Celtic, Arabic and Greek. In arabic, alina means noble and illustrious. It also means light. If my name was spelled & pronounced A-L-E-E-N-A the meaning would change into Silk of Heaven! Subhanallah!
O Allah, I plead to You, make this servant of Yours a noble and illustrious person that spread Your Light to the entire world that she could afford of, so that she could become one of Your Silk of Heaven! Amiin!
Thank you Abah for the honor of giving me this name; I really hope I can bear the weight of this name and its responsibility. Thank you Allah! For everything You bestowed upon me; they were beyond words, even words couldnt describe what I feel inside, You are The Most Gracious, The Most Forgiving, The Most Exalted thank you, thank you so much!
Alhamdulillah alhamdulillah alhamdulillah, thank you Allah!
