Clarification of Fatwa #33095

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

This is regarding fatwa # 33095. Just a clarification required .
So, did you mean that امن and امان mean the same? If not what’s the difference?

We have named our baby امن عبدالله. Is there any problem in that?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh

The names Amaan (with Alif/) and Aman (without Alif) have the same meaning. The name Aman Abdullah is a suitable name.[1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,

Respected Brother/Sister

We make Du’aa you are well. The Darul Iftaa was established in the year 2011. The fundamental objective of the Darul Iftaa is to train Ulama from various parts of the world to become Muftis. In this world of scientific calculations and technological advancements, economic confusion and political disarray, a Mufti is trained to understand and analyze current situations and provide leadership for the Ummah. There is a vacuum  of competent Muftis in various parts of the world. The Ummah lacks leadership. Alhamdulillah 21 students from different parts of the World including Canada, Belgium, USA, UK and Russia graduated this year as Mufti’s. The Darul Iftaa attended to hundreds of Fatawa from across the Globe and also attended to various large mediations and commercial arbitrations.

The Darul Iftaa requests your generous contributions during this auspicious month of Ramadhaan for running and general expenses of the Institute. This is indeed a great opportunity for you to earn Sawab e Jariyah in the Aakhirah. This is a tree with many branches bearing sweet fruits for your Aakhirah. Insha’Allah.
