Choosing Muslim Names the Right Way;The Islam Way.


“You will be called on the Day of Resurrection by your names and the names of your fathers, so have good names.”

Hadith reported by Abu Dawud

If we refer to the above hadith, we know that Islam emphasized Muslims to have good names, and give good names to our children. There is a fatwa regarding name choosing that we can follow made by an eminent muslim scholar, Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi.

  • The name had to be  neither detestable by people nor to be rejected by the child himself, when he grows up. Example of such names are names that have the meaning of evil connotations, bad omen, names of people known for their oppression.
  • Names like “`Abdul-Ka`abah”, “`Abdun-Nabi”, “`Abdul-Hussayn”, and such names that implies `Ubudiyyah (servitude) to others than Allah are prohibited.
  • Names that give an impression of pomposity and vainglory are not suitable for muslim child as stated in a hadith; “The most detestable name for Allah in the Hereafter is that of a man who calls himself “King of All Kings”, for Allah is the Lord of the Kings.” (Reported by Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud, and At-Tirmidhi)
  • The Finest Names of Allah, such as “Ar-Rahman (the Gracious), Al-Khalik (the Creator), etc are forbidden unless the word ‘Abd’ is attached at the beginning of the name e.g Abdul Rahman.
  • Names with the Attributes of Allah with a definite article, such as “Al-`Aziz” (the All-Powerful) and “Al-Hakim” (the Most-Wise), is forbidden but can be used without a definite article, e.g. “`Aziz” and “Hakim”.
  • Calling children after the Prophets and righteous peoples are recommended .
  • There are no restiriction in using non-arab names as long as the meaning is good.

I hope with the guides above you can choose names for your baby so much easier.

    Sementara itu, berdasarkan information pihak kepolisian di Garut, pada Desa Pasanggrahan,
    Kecamatan Cilawu, memiliki 30 unit rumah warga yg terdampak gemmpa tersebut.
    Oleh karena itu, dimensi yang berupa panjang, lebar
    lalu juga tinggi atap sangatlah dibutuhkan. Krena reng memang harus seuai dengan lebar daun dari
    atap. Pekerjaan ini harus dilakukan sebagaiselaku, ala, menurut, hati-hati dan seksama, agar rumah tidak mengalami kebocoran. Nasi goreng meerah ini copcok di lida pencinta makanan Arab

    I have to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this blog.
    I am hoping to check out the same high-grade blog posts from you
    later on as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has encouraged
    me to get my very own site now 😉


    It is not my first time to pay a visit this website, i am
    visiting this web site dailly and take nice facts from here all the time.


    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Good response in return of this difficulty with real arguments and explaining
    the whole thing regarding that.

    Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking the time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what
    can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.

    If you work at a company that has internship programs, make sure those interns look like America. People of color need opportunities.

    Don’t stay silent in the face of racism. When somebody makes a racial joke or says a racial slur, stop them, even if it’s your blood relative.

    Make meaningful connections and friendships with black people — and not just to say “I have black friends.” I know in some less diverse places in America, that doesn’t sound easy. But really, with social media and all the rest, it’s not that hard.

    Don’t support racists. Weaponize your pocketbook. When somebody says something racist on TV, shut it off. Find out who their advertisers are and tell them you won’t spend money with them if they keep spending their money on shows that fan the flames of racism.

    Even the gambling houses offer approximately complete statistics in the different events they feature,
    my recommendation is usually to refer to these pages.

    Your sports betting strategy could possibly be the Paroli
    system or it could be the Martingale system. Systems that usually are short lived are called “trends” and single
    events that tend to influence betting one way or another are classified as “angles”.
