Name safee ur rabb
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Assalamulaikum. Would you kindly confirm if "Safee ur Rab" is a good name for a baby boy. As per my understanding the meaning of this name is "The best friend of Allah". Kindly correct me if I am wrong. Thank you

Name safee ur rabb
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The Arabic term ‘Safee’ would mean ‘the one who is chosen’ or ‘the chosen one’; thus the name ‘Safee-ur-Rabb’ would mean ‘the one chosen by Allah’. It is not a bad name to be given to a believer.
Among the best Islamic names are Abd-Allah and Abd-ar-Rahmaan. Also, any name whereby one declares his subjugation to one of the many attributes of Allah, like Abddus-Shukoor, Abdul-Maalik, Abdur-Razzaak, Abdul-Khaalik, etc. are considered good Islamic names.
Then there are the names of any of the Prophets of Allah like Adam, Noah, Ibraheem, Moosa, Yahya, Isa, Idrees, Sulaimaan, Dawood, Mohamed, etc. Any of these names are good names for boys.
And then there are the hundreds if not thousands of names of the noble companions of the Last Messenger of Allah (saws) like Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Ali, Bilaal, Salmaan, Hudhaifa, Khalid, Ammaar, Yaasir, etc. Any of these names will be considered good Islamic names.
The deen of Islam is rich in history… from the times of Prophet Adam (a.s.) to the present day… And any good name of any of the God-fearing and pious slaves of Allah would make for a good Islamic name for the new born.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of
Your Brother in Islam,
