Welcome to Muslim baby names dot net. Our web site has a huge quantity of Muslim and Islamic names with meanings. Baby name given to a child is his or her first gift in life. Therefore, great care must be taken in choosing baby names that have pleasant and beautiful meanings just like our Prophet (pbuh) did. According to a Hadith a child must be named promptly on birth. The baby name should be meaningful. 'You will be called by your name on the day of judgment' this is another reason why it is important to chose a baby name with good meaning. The prophet (pbuh) was very particular about it. The Prophet has suggested names of the Prophets or Abdullah and Abdur Rahman. He has said, "Keep the names of the noble Prophets, Allah loves most the names Abdullah and Abdur Rahman. The most truthful names are Harith and Humam, while the most disliked are Harb and Murrah (war and bitter)." Psychologists now apprehend the wisdom of the effect a person’s name has on his life. But Muhammad (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) had revealed this fact to his followers already 1400 years ago. His teaching to his followers was that children should be given good names, and that meaningless names and those having unsavory connotations should be avoided. Subsequently, we find many incidents mentioned in the Hadith where Rasoolullah (Sallallahu-alayhiwasallam) changed the names of people with this object. Another aspect of a person’s name is that it bespeaks a person’s religion. Hence the name of a Muslim is usually of such a nature that by the mere mention of it, the listener understands that the person so addressed, is a Muslim. It is for this reason that our elders laid great emphasis on keeping good and pleasant names. But since the widespread of Western culture throughout the world, it has become customary amongst Muslims not to take into congnisance the meaning of the name when naming a child. Many do not even bother to ascertain whether it is permissible for one to keep such a name or not. Often, even if the name is correct and suitable, then by way of abbreviating it, its Islamic connotation is distorted. In fact, at times it even becomes unlawful to address one Rahmaan; Abdur-Razzaaq, Razzaqq and Wahhaab are the exclusive epithets of Allah Ta’ala. To address any creation, by such a name, is there unlawful. Muslim Baby Boy Names Muslim Baby Girl Names Muslim Historical Names Allah's Names Names of the Prophet (pbuh)
Muslim Boy Names:
The barakah of naming a child after the beloved name of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam): Rasoolullah (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: “Whoever is named after me with the hope of being blessed, he will be blessed and will be in peace till the Day of Qiyaamah.” He also said: “To whomever is born a boy and he names him Muhammad solely for the love of me and for the blessings of my name, then both he (the father) and his son will enter Jannah.” The importance of keeping good names: HADEETH: “On the Day of Qiyamah you will be called by your (own) names and the names of your fathers. Therefore keep good names.” – Abu Dawood. HADEETH: “To whomever is born a child, the child should be given a good name and sound eduction. And when he becomes of age he should be married.” It was Rasoolullah’s (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) practice to enquire the names of persons and villages. If they were pleasant, it became apparent on his face. If not, his displeasure could be seen. Once Rasoolullah (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) called for a volunteer to milk a camel. Four persons volunteered: he refused to accept the services of the first three because their names did not imply pleasantness. The names of the first two were Murra (bitter) while Jamrah (burning coal) was the name of the third person. When the fourth said his name si Yaeesh (love live) Rasoolullah (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) said to him: “Milk her.” Undesirable names should be changed: Aaishah (RA) reports that Rasool (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) used to change displeasing names replacing them with good names. Abdullah bin Umar (RA) relates that one of his sisters was names Aasiyuah (disobedient). Rasoolullah (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) changed it to Jameelah (beautiful). Zainab (RA) says that I had been named Birrah (pious). Rasoolullah (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) said: “Do not claim piety for Allah knows best who amongst you are pious. Name her Zainab!”
Names may influence the lives of people: Saeed ibne Musaiyib (RA) relates from his father that his grand father went to Rasoolullah (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) and was asked: “What is your name?” He replied: “Hazn” (sorrow). Rasoolullah (Sallallahu-alayhiwasallam) said: “You are Sahl.” (contended). He replied: “I will not change the name my father had given me.” The narrator says that thereafter sorrow continually remained with them. Keep away from names implying shirk: As Muslims, we should always obstain from keeping names implying any elements of Shirk, like adjoining the word ‘Abd’ (servant) to names or epithets other that those of Allah Ta’ala. Rasoolullah (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) also forbade keeping pompous and self-glorifying names, for this reveals arrogance and haughtinesshuman elements most abhorred by Allah Ta’ala. Be proud of your identity and faith: Muslims should always be proud of their identity and faith. Nowadays, to conceal his identity, it is common practice for a person to ‘westernize’ his name, like substituting Yoosuf with oe or Joseph, Sulaimaan with Solly or Sully, Faatimah with Fatli, Sumayyah with Summi etc. Efforts to distort such beautiful names meely reveal an un-Islamic and sacreligious attitude.
