My sister knew that she is having the male baby through ultrasound scan. In-sha-Allah she got her due date by next month. So we want the meaning of these names: Affan, Afnaan, Rihan, Maseen, Hanoon. Please tell the meaning of these names and suggest me which is the best choice among these?

Answer

(Fatwa: 241/134/H=1433)

Affan was the name of Hadhrat Usman Ghani’s (رضى الله عنه) father. You can keep this name or keep Raihan which means fragrance. We do not know the meaning of Maseen and Hanoon, do not keep them.
