No. 5332

Ibn 'Umar reported that Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) changed the name of 'Asiya (Disobedient) and said: You are Jamila (i. e. good and handsome). Ahmad (one of the narrators) narrated it with a slight variation of wording.

Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) changed her name to Juwairiya and said: I did not like that it should be said: He had come out from Barra (Pious).

(She said): I was also called Barra, but Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: Don't hold yourself to be pious. It is God alone who knows the people of piety among you. They (the Companions) said: Then, what name should we give to her? He said: Name her as Zainab.
