Question

Mufti Sahab what is the meaning of name AYAAN and is this name good to be kept for a baby boy.

 

 

Answer

Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

 

The name A’yaan, pronounced ,(أعيان)means leaders, important people, people of distinction. It would be permissible to keep this name.

The pronunciation (عيان) means tired, weak, fatigued. This name should not be kept. (The Hans Wehr Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic)

Keep in mind that the most beloved names to Allah Ta’ala are Abdullah and Abdur-Rahman, as is stated in a Hadith.

أحب الأسماء إلى الله تعالى عبد الله وعبد الرحمن

(Sunan Abi Dawud)
