Keeping the names Zahra, Zianab, Sakina, Ali, Husain

Q: Shias mostly use lots of names from the Ahle Bait like Zahra, Zianab, Sakina, Ali, Husain, etc. What’s wrong with us? Why don’t we use these sweet and glorious name quite often?


A: These are names of the Sahaaba and Alhamdulillah we keep these names.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
