It is mentioned: our position is that we do not name mindlessly, rather the name represents a Ma’naa (meaning) of the named; this is why we are encouraged to name even our possessions with good names.
It is mentioned: There are certain people who will go through so much punishment in Hellfire that they will disturb other sufferers in Hellfire – we ask Allah’s Protection from all punishment.

It is mentioned: In the context of the Awliyaa’, when the Qur’an mentions “La Khawfun alayhim”, it means that the people should not fear for these Awliyaa’.
