Is Name Daniyaal permissible


Assalaamualaikum wrwb dear Shaykh.

Can I keep my baby’s name as Daniyaal. Was it the name of any Prophet AS before. What does it mean.

JAZAKALLAHU khairan kaseera for the best service to mankind.


wa alaykum salam,

Daniyal is the name of a prophet of Bani Israeel and thus a blessed name as the Prophet (s) said, “give names after names of prophets.” It means ‘Judgment of Allah’ and Allah knows best.
