Meaning of the name Mahdin

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Can you tell me what’s the meaning of name Mahdin. I want to keep that name for my baby boy InshAllah

Answer

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

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

As Muslims, we are advised to assume good names for our children since the name of a person has an effect on his traits and characteristics.

Nabi salallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam said regarding keeping good names: “indeed you shall be called on the day of Qiyaamah with your names and the names of your fathers, so give good names to yourselves”.[1]

Hereunder follows our response regarding the name that you have enquired about:

The name “Mahdin” means “my guide” representing the short form of the word “مهديني”.

The name is suitable.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
