Islamic Names book contains the most beautiful and meaningful names for Muslim kids. book was written by Muhammad Imran Ashraf Usmani.
Islamic teachings have a Muslim mother tongue. also the Muslims to select a meaningful and good name for their children. The Holy Prophet (sallall ahu alaihi wasallam) has changed the names of several people.
It is reported by Abdullah ibn Umar (radiyallahu anhu) the well-known Sahabi, that one of his sisters was named Asiyah which means ‘Disobedient’. The Holy Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) changed her name to ‘Jamilah’ (Beautiful).
Many scientists today have been admitted that the Holy Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) 1401 years ago when he advised the Muslims to select good names for their children.
The names are also a source of identity of one’s religion. Therefore, the Muslims have been naming their children after the Prophets, the Sahabah (Companions of the Holy Prophet (saw) and the pious persons of the Islamic history.) Unfortunately, this aspect of our lives is being neglected by many Muslims who do not bother to pay any attention to the meaning or any other association attached to their names. In their eagerness to follow the modern trends, they a fine sense, or has an un-Islamic background. For example, the female names like ‘Tahmina, Rubina, Nazli, have a meaningful meaning at all. woman with this name. likewise, some Muslims girls are named as Naailah, which means calamity. Many boys are named as ‘Parvaiz’ while ‘Parvaiz’ was the name of a king of Persia rophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) into pieces. It is shameful for Muslim to name his child after such an enemy of Islam. It is also seen in some Arab countries that the person is named ‘Firaun’ which is the Arabic title of Pharaoh, the tyrant of Egypt who was persecuted by the followers of Sayyidna ‘Moosa’ (Moses) and was drowned in the sea.
In short, the selection of names for the children should not be taken lightly. It can bring serious results both in this world and in the Hereafter. However, the Muslims who are conscious of this fact can guide them in choosing a suitable name for their children. Some brief booklets are found to serve this purpose, but a more comprehensive book was still needed, especially for the Muslims living in the Western countries.
Muhammad Imran Ashraf Usmani who is a graduate of Darul Uloom Karachi undertook this task and compiled the present guide book to fulfill this need. He has collected the right names for the Muslims boys and girls from the original Arabic resources, and has been clarified by their meanings and their association. All the names are arranged in an alphabetical order and if some names are non-Arabic, their origin has been indicated before each. Where no such indication is found, it means that they are of Arabic origin. This is easy to consult. It is hoped that it will help the Muslims in acquiring themselves with good Muslim names and their meanings.
