Meaning of names Murtuza & Batul
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:
Asalamwalaikum Burhan bhai. I would like o congratulate U on having a brilliant site for Muslims to be able to get answers to their questions. Well, there are many questions I would like to ask, but right now all I wanted to know was the meaning on my name, which is Batul, and the meaning of my hubands name, Murtaza. And wat is the rt spelling of his name? Is it Murtaza or Murtuza. Thanx
(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.)
Meaning of Batul & Murtaza
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.
Batool is not an Arabic term, but rather a Farsi or Iranian term; and I have to admit that I dont know Farsi language fluently. I will refer to a Farsi dictionary, and Insha Allah, will revert back to you.
The correct spelling of your husbands name is Murtadha, and it means something or someone that is liked.
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,
