Question

Assalamualaikum,Alhamdulillah i am blessed with baby boy recently, i have query related to name of boy.1. Is name "Adyan" have any negative meaning?I understand that meanings of name Adyan is, pious, religious. Quran mentioned about people of "Aad", who were punished by allah. Is there any relation of the name Adyan with people of aad.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

If by the word "Adyan" you mean the Arabic word, then it is the plural of the word "Deen" [religion], and we do not know of any prohibition that prevents naming the newborn with the name Adyan.

However, we didn't understand what you mean by linking this name to the people of Aad.

For more benefit, please refer to Fataawa 82724, 87262, 88553 and 87596.

Allah knows best.
