    Hazrat Bayzeed Bustami is one of the very famous Wali ULLAH, as per all sunni books, why his parents chose that name for him? or why didn’t he changed his name himself??

    Bayazeed Bustami means Aba Yazeed or Abu Yazeed meaning father of Yazeed. His son’s name was Yazeed so he himself gave this name to his son. Allah knows better who is Wali Ullah or Lanaat Ullah. If u think its right then next time give this very name ‘Lanaat Ullah’ to ur next son will u? So leave this matter to Allah. Wallah o A’lamo bissawab.

    Lanatullah alayhi! Do not choose this name for your children. He was one of the greatest tyrants in history, and he’s famous for ordering the killing of Prophet Muhammad’s grandson, Hussain and his family.

    better to avoid this name, as we very well his position in the conflict of karbala, either he has ordered or killed himself or he was silent for the blundered act of killing, maybe his name was good before his generation, but definitely not after him, so not preferable,

    If someone do bad thing with the name “Muhammad” . Will u start calling all people who have this name are bad, or this is not good name?? Grow up people , this is a Quranic name, many people do terrorism with the name of prophets but blame people not name …

    To bad that the shias are jahil and ignorant, Yazid ibn aqil was from ahlulbait WHO fougth with Ali ibn abi talib he was son of aqil ibn abi talib and even ali ibn abi talib bigger brother kuniya was Abu Yazid, its no problem with the name yazid or bayazid, but the shias are very close minded, they love the name firoz who killed Omar ibn khattab. They dont like sunnis names like ,Omar, Osman, marwan, yazid. Mu’awiya, but the funny thing is alhulbait had These name 🙂

    Assalamu Alaikkum All..

    The six sahabas (raliyallahu anhu) listed below , were among the companions of Prophet Mohammed ( swallahu alaihi wassalam) who partcipated in the battle of there after called or addressed as the Shuhadha Badr…

    1)Yazeed ibn al-Akhnas al-Muhajiri(raliyallahu anhu)
    2)Yazeed ibn al-Harith ibn Fushum ash-Shahad al-Khazraji(raliyallahu anhu)
    3)Yazeed ibn Hiram al-Khazraji(raliyallahu anhu)
    4)Yazeed ibn Ruqaysh al-Muhajiri(raliyallahu anhu)
    5)Yazeed ibn as-Sakan al-Awsi(raliyallahu anhu)
    6)Yazeed ibn al-Mundhir al-Khazraji(raliyallahu anhu)

    Among the above ” Yazeed ibn al-Harith ibn Fushum ash-Shahad al-Khazraji (raliyallahu anhu) ” was the swahaba who was killed during the battle of Badr…

    So in Islamic History the martyrs of Badr are very much honored and remembered by the Muslim Ummah. Especially for the pain and sacrifices they suffered during the battle while being in their Ramzan fasting..

    So let the names be remembered for the people with good though people with evil deeds were discussed more in doesn’t really mean to forget those gentle men and beloved warriors…

    Anyone named Ibrahim or Ali or Omar or Mohammed or Moosa or any other names committed a crime or lead a impure life….Should because of those culprits the real legends to be forgotten or not loved or respected…
