Meaning of Aftabuddin

Aftabuddin is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “sun of the religion”, it is the Persian equivalent of the name Shamsuddin. The full meaning is “one whose character and deeds beautify and support the religion”. It is formed from Persian Aftab (“sun”) and Arabic u (“of”) and ad-Deen (“the religion”).

And strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has chosen you and has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty. [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham. Allah named you “Muslims” before [in former scriptures] and in this [revelation] that the Messenger may be a witness over you and you may be witnesses over the people. So establish prayer and give zakah and hold fast to Allah. He is your protector; and excellent is the protector, and excellent is the helper. (Quran 22:78)
