I run into so many Turks and South Asians with this name. Even Erdogan’s son and heir is named Bilal. But rarely any Somalis. At the same time, everyone is called “Abdi” this or that.

What’s wrong with it being uncommon ?oh I see🤔it’s because Bilal ra was East African so you were expecting the name to be common in Somalia ?
Which u name 😏
You dumb cunt I didn’t say anything about wrong or right I asked a question
I didn’t downplay anything just made an observation
Don’t know what this question is really about but ‘Abdi this or that’ is crazy
I named my kid after Bilal (RA). But you are right, there aren’t many.
I know two Bilal's, both under 20 ( one is 5 lol). It's not as common as abdi* but that's comparing 1 name to 100+ names. Apples and oranges.
For those arguing about Bilal’s heritage, he was actually Arab on his paternal side. He was the son of an Aksumite noblewoman/in some narrations a princess.
The only reason why he was a slave is because his father was an Arab slave. His maternal side actually ruled Yemen(Himyar) and parts of Saudi Arabia, until they were defeated by the Sassanid Persians. The remaining Aksumite people were either expelled from Yemen or sold into slavery.
Bilal’s mother Hamamah was reported to have been captured during the battle of the elephant between the Aksumites and Meccans.
Very good observation. I have yet to meet any Somali named Bilal. I have met Hilal tho.
Hello, Your post/comment has been removed for violating Rule 1 (be respectul/civil). Please consult the rule section, which can be found on the front page of the sub, for details.
Exactly. It’s always the mentally unstable ones who find the most weirdest stuff to complain about. The questions asked here genuinely baffles me
bro why get so triggered it’s just a question
I see I touched a nerve
Not even close, if that was your intention, u failed big time! Make sure that cat 🐈 is fed tho, big bro
After a busy day bravely staring down my neighbors dog through the glass door, running after her favorite mouse toy, chasing me and her favorite string toy around the studio, and scratching up her scratching pad after her evening walk I can assure you kitty is blissful and is currently rolled up purring against my legs.
you just ask the most ridiculous things,This Isn’t the kind of posts people wanna see on their lunch break
ngl I don’t know why people are getting so triggered about your question
I have met Somalis named Bilal but anyways May Allah guide you man, a desire is not worth ruining your akhirah for. Allah is the Most Forgiving except for when it comes to shirk and kufr.
Bilal RA was a Horner. We love him alhamdulilah.
we dont love him because he's a horner but because he was a righteous man and a companion of the prophet.
Horner isn’t an identity 😂 also the Horn of Africa geographically is only comprised of Somalia.
Horn of of Africa includes djibouti south of Eritrea and east of Ethiopia(not just the Somalia side)
Not geographically, also east of Ethiopia as you call it is Ogaden which is Somali territory, NFD in Kenya, half of Djibouti, these are all Somali lands. And with all of them together as a landmass are what truly comprise the Horn of Africa. Do you think if Habeshas/Ethiopians were in this strategic position they’d wanna share the title?
Eat of Ethiopia isn’t Ogaden.that is the name of 1 clan when their are other native clans their.it’s Somali galbeed
Murtaads should get a ban from this sub. Mahmud really dropped the ball on this. How can disrespect against the shabah be tolerated here!?
Shut your mouth. You can't reach the dirt under Bilal RA shoes. Don't insult the shabah.
I know many Bilals tbh
In Somali Bilaal is technically a female name. Bilad is male version. It’s quite the common name in Kilinka regions.
You mean Bilan not Bilaal
No I mean Bilaal. I have a sister and cousin both females named that! I also have a cousin named he’s a male named Bilad. I always thought it was common
Billal was Sklave even after death of qasim(Mohammed) according hadis books .
Not true. Bilal(RA) was freed by Abubakar(RA) and prophet Muhammad (saws) after he became Muslim
Bilal said to Abu Bakr, "If you have bought me for yourself then keep me (for yourself), but if you have bought me for Allah's Sake, then leave me for Allah's Work."
حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ نُمَيْرٍ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عُبَيْدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ، عَنْ قَيْسٍ، أَنَّ بِلاَلاً، قَالَ لأَبِي بَكْرٍ إِنْ كُنْتَ إِنَّمَا اشْتَرَيْتَنِي لِنَفْسِكَ فَأَمْسِكْنِي، وَإِنْ كُنْتَ إِنَّمَا اشْتَرَيْتَنِي لِلَّهِ فَدَعْنِي وَعَمَلَ اللَّهِ.
And? That's Bilal saying to Abu Bakr "are you buying me as a slave or freeing me?" It's well known that Abu Bakr freed Bilal, this Hadith is no evidence that he was still a slave. He was freed
He should be able to ask qasim(Mohammed) if qasim(Mohammed )is not dead. In this time qasim(Mohammed )is dead and Abubaker has taken over the power of the Khalif. Billal died as a slave. Poor Bilall
May Allah curse you
I know a kid named bilal, he is my friends son. Also my brothers son is named bilal (his mum is French)
Why would you expect it to be more common than it is? Its not unheard of
Why would we do that we can have Abdi(insert any suffix of your choice) 😂😂 all jokes aside, it’s a nice name.
