Question

Some people call their children by names from aayahs of the Qur’aan, such as Afnaan and Aalaa, etc. What is your opinion?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

There is nothing wrong with that, for these are created things. Aalaa’ means blessings and Afnaan means branches. People have started to look for more variety in names and are looking for new names for their sons and daughters.
