Muslim Baby Names - Quick Guide!

Asalaam and hello!

Here is 1 of my quick guide on 'Muslim Baby Names'...

It's always a joy when Allah(swt) blesses you with a child. A special gift a mother will cherish her whole life and a gift that brings a smile on a fathers face. Children always bring happiness and joy, but also trials and great responsibilities in life. One of the very first duties you have toward your new child, besides physical care and love, is to give your child a name that carries honor and Islamic meaning behind it. Afterall all Muslim baby names are special and its the matter of you finding a suitable one for your special child.

It is from the teachings of the Messenger of Allah, that each member of the family to be given a good name. Those who ask Allah(swt) to give them children should also ask Allah(swt) to make these children among the followers of the Prophet Muhammad and adhere to his Sunnah. It is an obligation upon the parents that their child be given a good name. Some hadeeth indicate that the child is to be named on the seventh day along with Aqeeqah(shaving of the head and animal sacrifice).

However, the Prophet also named children on the day of their birth, as proven by other narrations. There is no harm if the child is named before the seventh day, but if the naming has not been done, and then the child should be named on the seventh day.

Naming a child with a beautiful and honourable name is very important. The Prophet always chose names with good and beautiful meanings, even telling people to change their names if they had unpleasant meanings.

It is reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "On the Day of Resurrection, you will be called by your names and by your fathers' names, so give yourselves good names."
(Hadith Abu Dawud).

So Insha-Allah remember to give good muslim baby names to your coming family.
