Meaning of name ghulamali, banu, zahabiya

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.


Ghulam although an Arabic term meaning child or someone under ones guardianship, is generally referred to ‘a slave’ in the Urdu usage of the term. Thus ‘Ghulam Ali’ would mean ‘the slave of Ali’ referring to the noble companion and cousin of the Messenger of Allah (saws), Hadrat Ali ibn Abi Taalib (r.a.).


The term ‘Banu’ is derived from the Iranian or Farsi language meaning ‘a woman’.


‘Zahabiyyah’ actually spelt (Dhahabiyyah) is derived from the Arabic root word of ‘dhahab’ which means gold; thus ‘Dhahabiyyah’ would mean something made of gold or golden.


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 Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
