What does Tahira mean in swahili? I know it means "purity and chastity" in Arabic?

My ex reckons its means mentally deficient in his language but I cant find evidence of this in any translation dictionary of English/Swahili, perhaps its slang from Zanzibar, can anyone please help me out to clarify this??

Swahili has a lot of arabic words in the language.
So Tahira means the same in Swahili, as in arabic.
