Meaning of name Adnan
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.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 98 Surah Bayyinah verses 7-8:
7 Those who have faith and do righteous deeds they are the best of creatures.
8 Their reward is with Allah: Gardens of ĎAdní (Eternity) beneath which rivers flow; They will dwell therein for ever; Allah well pleased with them and they with Him: all this for such as fear their Lord and Cherisher
The Arabic term ĎAdnaaní is derived from the Quranic term or root word ĎAdní, which means something that is eternal and everlasting, like the Gardens of ĎAdní promised by the Lord to the righteous in the Hereafter.
Adnan was also the name of one of the early ancestors of the Prophet Mohamed (saws) and is a perfectly acceptable and good name to keep in Islam.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahís Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
