Is the name Burhan an attribute of Allah?

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

In my opinion just using the name 'BURHAN' is not correct since it is one of the personnal and 'sifaatti' names of ALLAH. Only he can be called "BURHAN". A mortal human-being should be called "ABDUL BURHAN" and not "BURHAN".

I hope you will correct this.

May Allah guide us all the way through.

Allah Hafiz

Is the name Burhan an attribute of Allah?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 27 Surah Al Naml verse 64: Bring forth your burhan (proof, evidence, etc.) if indeed what you say is the Truth!

The truth is that the term burhan is not amongst the Noble Attributes of Allah Subhanah; but rather the meaning of the term burhan means proof, evidence, etc.


Burhan or rather Burhan-ud-deen (proof or evidence for the deen) is a perfectly acceptable name for a believer in Islam.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
