  • Question:

    Are Muhammad Rayyan and Muhammad Ahyan good/valid names for boys? Do names have consequence on a child's fate?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Rayyan (meaning flowing with blessings) and Ahyan (meaning moments of goodness) are both acceptable names in Islam.
    Sickness and difficulties in life are part and parcel of the trials from the Almighty. We should do our best to remove the negatives and adversities in life through permissible means and leave the rest to Allah.

    We pray Allah reward you for your sacrifices and bless you and the family with the best of relief and comfort.


    And Allah knows best.
