Meaning of Names
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.
The correct name is Mustansir or Mustaeen, and both means one who asks for help or assistance.
Al-Moiz is one of the 99 Beautiful Names of Allah Subhanah and it means The Honorer.
The name Hudhaifa is derived from the root word hazaf, which means to erase something.
There were two very close companions of the Prophet (saws) named Hudhaifa ibn Yamaan and Abu Hudhaifa ibn Utbah; thus the believers display their love and adoration for these noble companions by naming their own children by their names.
The literal meaning of the term Khozaimah in the Arabic language is the hole in the nose of the camel (or any other animal). The name is derived from one of the noble companions of the Prophet (saws), ibn-Khuzaimah.
Yusuf originates from the Hebrew language and Biblical name Joseph, and is the name of one of the Prophets of Allah, Prophet Yusuf (a.s.), son of Prophet Yaqoob (a.s.)
The meaning of word Hussain is literally a small or little Hasan. And Hasan means beautiful. Thus Hussain also means beautiful, from the root word of husn.
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,
