Meaning name azlan
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Beloved brother, the truth is that there is no such term or word as azlan at least in the Arabic language; it could well be a word in another language and have a meaning but to the best of our knowledge there is no such term as azlan in the Arabic language.
Although one is encouraged in Islam to assign a name with a good wholesome meaning as a form of recognition, there is absolutely no harm and it is acceptable in Islam to assign a name which has no meaning.what is prohibited is that one assign a name to a believer which has an evil meaning, or the name connotes shirk, disbelief, etc.
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,
