    فَيْصَل is a beautiful name and it also my own name and Walaahi I never experienced any problems nor hardship with my name.

    My name means that I am decisive ruler and this is astonishing as I always feel like I am a greater leader and I am not afraid of making decisions.

    Lastly, I would like to thank my father for naming me this name. May Allah bless him and may He bless every single one of us! Amiin.

    I’m Faisal too, I knew myself to be very decisive even before discovering the meaning of “Faisal” hence I’ve always found myself being a leader in whatever organization I’m a participant of. Trust me I’ve never lost even a single debate before, I always stand, abide and defend my words confidently because I know very well that I author the best opinion. Yes I do make mistakes sometimes and also learn from it again. Put this in mind too I am not perfect.

    My name is Faisal from Nigeria. The name ‘Faisal’ has nothing related to stubbornness but individual differences. We pray ALLAH s.w.t to grant all of us and our family good ethics and morals to live a life worthy of emulation around the world.
