Some female companions had this name, among whom were Haalah Bint Khuwaylad, who was the sister of our mother Khadeejah and Haalah Bint ‘Awf Az-Zuhriyyah, the sister of ‘Abdur-Rahmaan ibn ‘Awf, who was one of the ten companions who were given glad tidings to enter Paradise.
The name Haalah is derived from the word Al-Haalah; which is the beam of light around the moon.
Ibn Fares said in Mu’jam Maqaayees Al-Lughah [an Arabic Dictionary]: Haalah: is the light circle around the moon.” [End of quote]
There are many good names of righteous women from this nation, such as the names of the female companions and the names of the women in the generation that followed them. They are names that motivate people to be connected to the religion and to follow the example of the righteous predecessors of this nation.
Among the good names as well is the name Maryam; after the name of Mary (Maryam), may Allaah exalt her mention.
At-Tabaraani reported with a chain of narrators which is not strong (inauthentic) from Abu Bakr ibn Abu Maryam, from his father, from his grandfather, who said: “I came to the Prophet and said: ‘A new baby-girl was born to me last night.’ Thereupon, the Prophet said: ‘And last night Soorah Maryam was revealed to me; so name her Maryam.’ So she was named Maryam.”
Allah knows best.
