Meaning of Hadi

Hadi means someone who guides people toward as-Sirat al-Mustaqeem (the Straight Path), and it is one of the 99 Attributes of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). Ibn Al-Athir Al-Jazri, the great Islamic scholar of Saladin’s time, describes the Attribute as describing this aspect of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala): “He is the one who has given His servants the ability to see, and has shown them the way toward knowing Him, until they bore witness that He is their God, and He has guided every creation toward whatever it needs to exist and survive.”

Whoever Allah sends astray – there is no guide for him. And He leaves them in their transgression, wandering blindly. {7:186}

And in this way We have assigned to every prophet an enemy from among the criminals. And your Lord is enough for you as a guide and supporter. {25:31}

    For anyone asking if it’s alright to name your son Hadi instead of Abdul-Hadi, and the answer is yes, Hadi means guide (to the straight path), Al-Hadi or Ul-Hadi is one of the names of Allah meaning THE Guide (Abd means servant/slave), so naming your son Hadi is alright, just like with Kareem and Al-Kareem

    My brother is named Hadi and in Levant Arabic Dialects Hadi also doubles as a word for Calm or Quiet, coming from the standard Arabic haadi’
