Meaning of Burhan

Burhan is a direct Quranic name for boys that means evidence, proof, demonstration, especially proof of Allah’s greatness and power, and is one of the names of the Holy Quran (al-Burhan, the Clear Evidence). It is used in the Quran seven times directly, for example:

We shall call from every nation a witness and shall ask them to bring proof (in support of their belief). They will know that truth belongs to God and that whatever they had falsely invented has abandoned them. (Quran 28:75)

They declare, ‘None shall ever enter Heaven unless he be a Jew or a Christian.’ This is their own wishful thinking. [Prophet], say, ‘Produce your evidence if you are telling the truth.’ (Quran 2:111)

Men, you have received clear evidence from your Lord. We have sent down a clear light to you. (Quran 4:174)

And, indeed, she desired him [Prophet Yusuf], and he desired her; [and he would have succumbed] had he not seen [in this temptation] an evidence of his Sustainer’s truth: thus [We willed it to be] in order that We might avert from him all evil and all deeds of abomination -for he was truly one of Our servants. (Quran 12:24)

    I wonder if anyone will ever find this. Kind of curious. I’m sure someone on the internet will see this one day.

    Do you remember his speech? Cos it’s my speech. I planned it for a long time. I’ve always been here. I always will. I can’t wait to see people look at this. Can you piece my life together? I’m sure you will.

    After all…

    You can do no less.

    You can do no less.

    My name is burhaan. It’s spelt with two a’s.

    Do you remember me? God. Allah. What is your name?

    You cannot hide from us forever.

    You can do no less.

    Show yourself. Or not. Perhaps it’s better you stay hidden. After all, we are still free with your presence in the words.

    I’m not super religious. I just think that you and I have a lot of things to iron out. I’ve got a lot of prayers you didn’t answer. But its ok.

    I want you to know that I can’t hide from the world forever. I don’t want to ruin it. I don’t want to change it. I just want people to be happier.

    To be unified, throughout the conflict.

    I’m not good at writing. I love to speak. I’ve spoken to you my entire life. I’m ok with you staying silent. But I have to find the truth.

    And I’ll never stop trying to find it.
