Names- recommendations

Firstly I would like to share with my readers, my baby bump a few weeks ago..masa ni around 26 weeks..


Besar kan my baby bump mashaAllah...everyone that i see will mention the size...total weight gain almost 10kgs now...but all concentrated to my face, tummy and butt...so macam tak stable, and i look like a blob...esp because my face dah soooooo bulat...i can't even look at my pictures anymore...

anyway today i decided to share some Islamic recommendations on naming our new born child. Why is it so penting to bagi our babies names with good meaning??? because Rasulullah SAW mentioned "You will be called by your name on the day of judgment' . 


Meaning during akhirat time, we only bring 2 things with us 1)our amalan and 2)our names. So i guess it is quite important to give goood meaning to our babies...fyi, good meaning not just in arabic, good meaning in any language is accepted in Islam, but of course Arabic would be the best...inshaAllah...

1) It is recommended to give the child a name indicating servitude to Allah SWT

"indeed the best and most beloved names to Allah swt are Abdullah (servant of Allah) and Abd ur-Rahman (servant of the Most Merciful)" [hadith Muslim]


2) It is recommended to name the child after one of the Prophets and Messengers- the most righteous of humanity

This also use to be practiced by the Bani Israel as the Prophet SAW informed us and approved of with the hadith:

"they use to name their children after the Prophets and the pious people that came before them" [Hadith Muslim]

3) It is recommended to name the child after pious people in Islam and to teach the children about them

Thereby the child will inshaAllah grow up to love and respect them and follow their way and adopt their manners in righteousness and knowledge.
Examples include our Khalifah, Sahabat of the Prophet Muhammad SAW and scholars male and female....Umar, Uthman, Hamza, Fatima, Mariam, Aisha, Khadijah, Asma.....

4)It is recommended to give a child a name which has good meaning.

Names which have meanings of chastity, piety, honesty, and truth and more. Indeed names that fulfill the criteria of being truthful but not boastful about the Human nature should be chosen.


"the Most truthful names are : Harith (cultivator) and Hammam (planner) [hadith Muslim]

"The Prophet Muhammad SAW said : Call yourselves by the names of the Prophets. The names dearest to Allah are Abdullah and AbdurRahman, the truest are Harith and Hammam, and the worst are Harb and Murrah."[hadith Abu Dawood]
