Meaning of Name Aryan

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:

Aslamaleikum brother:

Please can you tell me if the name Aryan or Arian is possible to keep for a muslim baby? If so, please tell me the exact spelling


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Is Aryan an acceptable name

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.


Aryan is not an Arabic term, but to the best of our knowledge it is a term derived from the Sanskrit language and the term Aryan is assigned to the race of human-beings who are indigenous to the Indo-European region.


Although Aryan would be an acceptable and permissible name to keep for a muslim baby, there are better names from amongst the stalwarts in the history of Islam (the names of the Prophets, their companions, etc.) which one may keep, if they wish to do so.


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


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
