Meaning of Muawiyah

Muawiyah is an Arabic word for boys that literally means “one who howls”, from the root AIN-W-A (“to howl”), and it refers to female dogs and the cubs of foxes, lions, and other animals. Muawiyah was the name of the founder of the Omayyad empire, the Sahabi Muawiyah bin Abu Sufyan. It is not a Quranic name but Muslims can use since it existed during the time of the Prophet ﷺ and he didn’t ask the name to be changed (like he changed those names that he found unacceptable).

    our beloved prophet pbuh says:
    Whoever abuses my Companions, upon them is the curse of Allah, the angels and all the people” [Saheeh, At-Tabaranee]

    “Do not abuse my Companions, for if any of you were to spend gold equal to (mountain of) Uhud in charity, it would not equal a handful of one of them or even half of that” [al-Bukharee, Muslim].

    first of all he is not katib-e-wahi leave along katib-e-quran so correct yourself, secondly yes he did write some letters to various leaders which the Prophet dictated, it was in the same sahi bukhari which is being quoted not to say bad things about sahabas how muavia verbally used to abuse the family members of the prophet, so the idiot who quotes sahih bukhari should first take exception to who started the abuses. Secondly its the biggest misnomer that shias abuse sahabas, tell me where they do and i will believe u, those who are not worthy of being called sahabas and did bad will be abised by anyone leave alone shias. so just dont label every tom dick and harry as sahabi, coz then abu jahal will also be labeled as one along with abu lahab. simply becoz they were there at the time. With Hind as his mother, abu sufyan the one who broke the treaty of hudaybia as father and yazeed ibne muavia as a son what more could you expect from muavia, but if u still want to hero worship him and call him your leader plz by all means, our leader will always remain the grandson of Mohammad, and yours ???
