MUSLIM BABY NAMES
Whether the newborn is a girl or boy it is a gift and blessing from Allah. This is clearly described in the Holy Quran in the following verses:
Whoever He wishes rewards with girls and whoever He wishes rewards with boys. (Quran, 26:49)
God has sovereignty over the heavens and the earth. He creates what He will. He gives daughters to whom He will and sons to whom He pleases. To some He gives both, sons and daughters, and He makes sterile whom He will. Omniscient is God, and Mighty. (Quran, 42:49-50)
Muslim Baby Names
Muslim Baby Names have very special meaning and significance. Choosing the right Muslim Baby Names for a new born is a matter of great excitement as well as challenge to Muslim parents.
The tendency of giving fancy and rare Muslim Baby Names is much more common among Muslims living in English-speaking countries where there is a great scarcity of books on Muslim Baby Names in English. These so called fancy muslim baby names, when translated are sometimes meaningless and quite offensive!
The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has given several instructions and urged Muslim parents to call their children with good names. The current practice used in the naming of children among Muslim families is not easily reconciled with the teachings of Islam.
