A Quranic Name for Boys

Meaning: Supporter of Islam

Afsarodin is variant of Afseruddin and has the exact same meaning and pronunciation (see below for full meaning). You can use either Afsarodin or Afseruddin, both are correct and acceptable. If you like this variant more and you'd like to pronounce it the way it is spelled (different than the original name), this is perfectly acceptable. For more details please see the main entry at: Afseruddin.

Full Meaning of Afsarodin

Afsarodin is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “crown of the faith”, i.e. one who is a good believer and beautifies the religion in people’s eyes. It is formed from the Persian word Afser (“crown”) and the Arabic word ad-Deen (“the religion”, which refers to Islam). Afser is not a Quranic word, while ad-Deen is a Quranic word, for this reason we consider this name an indirect Quranic name.

All those you worship instead of Him are mere names you and your forefathers have invented, names for which God has sent down no authority: all power belongs to God alone, and He orders you to worship none but Him: this is the true faith, though most people do not realize it. (Quran 12:40)
