One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Salam walaikum Rahmathullah Barkathahu,
I have name my son Syed Aayan Hussainy, Many of my arab collegue says this name is not right, I have seen in some name book it means Gods Gift, Can u confirm the meaning of Aayan please
(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 name Aayan
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.
The Arabic term and name Aayan is derived from the root word Ayn which means eyes; thus Aayan would mean something which is manifest or in sight; and is a perfectly good and acceptable name in Islam.
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,
