Question

Is my name "Naziat" a haram name?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Issuing a ruling on the mentioned name depends on knowing its meaning, whether or not its meaning includes a forbidden meaning, and whether or not naming with this name involves imitation to non-Muslims.

What we can say is that if the meaning of the mentioned name does not include something forbidden and naming with this name does not involve imitating the non-Muslims, then there is nothing wrong with being named with it.

Allah knows best.
