    Isn’t Walee one of the names of Allah….as Abdul Walee is also a name on this site…so whether or not can we use it alone?please do answer.

    @1: Ali is also a name of Allah. Most names of Allah can be used as names, including Walee.

    Al-Wali is used when referencing Allah swt. Anyway we named my boy Muhammad Wali, one of the names of Nabi saw. Then I came to find the verse of “wilayat”. 5:55

    can I name my baby boy just ‘wali’ not Ábdul Wali’

    It’s a great name, but has multiple uses that may confuse the inept. Infact Allah swt refers to himself as the only Waali as in supreme guardian protector. But also insinuates that people can be wali of each other. Shaitan has awliya also as per the Quran Al Karim. But the most outstanding example I find is 5.55. such a nice number too. It outlines a brotherhood or group of sorts with Allah on top. And I want my boy to be a part of that inshallah.
