Question
What does the following ayat mean and is it a prayer?
Salamun qaulamirabirraheem

What is the meaning of the name YAHYA?

Answer
As Salaam Alaikum!

As Muslims we are commanded by the Almighty Allah to wish each other with salaam as and when
we come across or write to each other.

Salamun qawlan min rabbin raheem is the first verse in chapter 36

36:58
Greetings of peace from the Most Merciful Lord.

Yahya was the name of a Prophet before Prophet Jesus (who is known as John the baptist)and the
meaning is " Alive' or "to live" in Arabic I understand.

May the Almighty Allah have mercy on us to forgive our sins and guide us all to the true path
of Islam as per the Koran.
