Muslim Baby Names

For Muslims, it is always a joy when Allah blesses you. Children bring trials but also happiness and obligations. One of the very first responsibilities you have toward your child, besides physical care and love, is to give your child a meaningful Muslim name.

It is reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “On the Day of Resurrection, you will be called by your names and by your fathers’ names, so give yourselves good titles.” (Hadith Abu Dawud)

Traditionally, Muslim parents provide their newborn a name on the seventh day after birth, in an Aqiqah ceremony marked by a sacrifice of a sheep or goat. While in many customs, names for toddlers are chosen for their family relevance or other meanings, for Muslims, a kid’s name is normally chosen for spiritual and religious reasons.

Many Muslims choose Arabic titles, even though it should be recalled that 85 percent of the world’s Muslims aren’t Arabic by ethnicity, and culturally are not Arabs at all. Nonetheless, the Arabic language is important to Muslims, and it is common for non-Arab Muslims to select Arabic names.
