Alhamdulillah, I am blessed with a baby boy last week and thought to keep his name as Ashaz OR Shaz, I searched about this name it’s a Sahabi name, In Urdu name is Ashaz and Arabic name is Shaz, so kindly request you to give us your valuable advice and suggestions for this name or else if possible suggest us good baby boy names.

You should add the word Abd with the name of Allah for example: Abdullah, Abdur Rahman, Abdur Rahim, Abdus Sami or keep any name after the names of Prophets or Companions for example, Muhammad, Musa, Isa, Umar, Khalid, Usman etc. Ashaz and Shaz are not good to keep as some one’s name.

Allah knows Best!
