Region of origin Arabic

Burhan (Arabic: برهان‎, Burhān) is an Arabic male name meaning proof[1][2] and is an epithet of the Prophet Muhammad.[1] It is especially popular in Turkey, as it respects Turkish vowel harmony and the end syllable "-han" can be interpreted as the Turkish variant of "Khan".


وَقَالُواْ لَن يَدْخُلَ الْجَنَّةَ إِلاَّ مَن كَانَ هُوداً أَوْ نَصَارَى تِلْكَ أَمَانِيُّهُمْ قُلْ هَاتُواْ بُرْهَانَكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ

And they say: "No one will enter Paradise except unless he is a Jew, or a Christian!" Such is their wishful thinking. Say, "Show us your proof, if you are truthful."[3][4]
