Q: I Allah has gifted me a baby daughter that I called (Bayan). When she was two years old, a friend of mine told me that
it is impermissible to name her Bayan,
as it is one of the names of the Qur'an, and thus no one should be named after it. So, this man advised me to change it.I hope Your Eminence will advise me what should I do; Should I change the name? May Allah reward with the best!
The word: (Bayan) is one of the attributes of the Glorious Qur'an, and it has been mentioned in some Qur'anic verses. For instance, Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) says:
This (the Qur’ân) is a plain statement for mankind
It appears to me that there is nothing that forbids giving such a name to a child. It is notable that some early Muslim men were named after this name, even though they were few. (Part No. 10; Page No. 494) This can be known by reviewing the books of biographies. And Allah knows best.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
