Burhan is not a mumin name.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

the big mistake you have done to prove that you are a qasre aali is you dont write your full name after your letter.

there is no name as burhan in mumin.


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)



Burhan is not a mumin name.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


The arabic word ‘Qasre-Aali’ literally means, ‘(the ones or abiders of) The High Palaces’, insinuating that these people are the owners or abiders of the High Palaces Allah has promised to the people of Paradise!    We take refuge and protection in Allah, in claiming for ourselves anything which is in the Dominion, Power and Sovereignty of Allah Subhanah Alone.  Allah, the All Powerful, All Mighty, will Himself Alone decide who deserves to go to Paradise and who deserves to go to Hell.   No one, absolutely no one, can decide on Allah’s behalf who deserves what, and no one, not a soul, who truly fears Allah and the Last Day, will claim anything which belongs to the Dominion and Power of Allah Subhanah Alone.    Whoever does so, will be severely accountable to Allah on the Day of Judgement.


We have never claimed (Allah forbid) to be from the ‘Qasre-Aali”!   We are nothing but the created slave/servants of our Lord and Creator, Allah Subhanah.  May Allah guide the people who, in their arrogance and/or ignorance, have claimed the title of ‘Qasre-Aali’ or ‘the owners of the High Palaces in Paradise’, for themselves!


And just to satisfy your query, my name was given by the Syedna himself.  And the name given to me by my parents was Burhan-uddin, and my father’s name was Mohamed.  Thus my full name is Burhan-uddin Mohamed, and I am no more than a humble ‘abd’ (slave-servant) of my Creator, Allah Subhanah.  


The recognition of a muslim and a ‘mu’min’ is never by his name in the Court of Allah.  The recognition of a muslim or mu’min, will be according to his belief and his deeds!   A true mu’min in the sight of Allah is one who sincerely believes in Allah, His Angels, His Messengers, His Revealed Books, Destiny or ‘Qadr’, and the concept of the Hereafter.   A true mu’min is he who lives his life in total submission of his will to that of Allah’s, and fears standing in the Court of Allah on the inevitable Day of Judgement!  


May Allah guide you and us all to the Straight Path of Islam.   


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
