Answer:

Meaning of the name Huzaifa

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 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.

 

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,

Burhan
