Is the name Mirza Haroon Ahmad a good name for my son?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

`As`Salam`Alaikum rwb.

I would like to keep my first son name as Mirza Haroon Ahmad.

Please let me know if it’s a good name to keep.

I would also like to know the correct spelling, pronunciation and meaning of the Full complete name First (Mirza) Middle (Haroon) Last (Ahmad) that i need to break up the meaning.

Allah Hafiz




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

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The name Mirza is derived from the Persian word Amirzade which means child of the Amir (Child of the leader) (Wikipedia).[1] The correct pronunciation is mirr – zah.

The name Haaroon means chief; protector; guard. It was the name given to one of the prophets of Allah.

(Names for Muslim Children – Moulana Ahmad Mohammad Hathurani;page 87).  The correct pronunciation is Haa-roon.

The name Ahmad means the praised one; one worthy of praise; one who praises Allah abundantly. This was one of the names of Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihi wa Salam. (Ibid – page 23). The correct pronunciation is ah – mad

The name Mirza Haaroon Ahmad is a good name to keep. 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,



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. There are currently twelve students who are studying at the Darul Iftaa. They are from United States of America, United Kingdom, Mozambique, Jamaica, Zambia, Canada and South Africa. There are many Ulama from many parts of the world who have applied to study the Iftaa course. They could not be accommodated due to lack of adequate facilities. The Darul Iftaa has therefore embarked on an expansion project.

The Darul Iftaa requests your generous contributions for the expansion project. The building project has already begun and is expected to be completed within the next three months. 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. The Darul Iftaa banking details are as follows:

Bank:              FNB Bank
Account#:     62347912778
Branch:           221126

(The Darul Iftaa is registered and has the following PBO exemption number: 930039227 – 3 May 2012)
