Description

Foreword

To choose a suitable name for a child has always been a matter of interest for Muslim family. Whenever a child is born, parents search for a good name for him or her. Islamic teachings have also encouraged the Muslims to select a meaningful and good name for their children. The Holy prophet has changed the names of several persons, because they carried a bad sense.

It is reported by Abdullah ibn Umar, the well-known Sahabi, that one of his sisters was named (Asiyah) which means 'disobedient'. The Holy Prophet changed her name to 'Jamilah' (Beautiful).

Many scientists today have admitted that the name of a person may influence his life, but the Holy Prophet has revealed this fact to his followers 1400 years ago when he advised the Muslims to select good names 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 also a good collection of the suitable names, which is easy to consult. It is hoped that it will assist the English Knowing Muslims in acquainting themselves with good Muslim names and their meanings. May Allah bless this effort with His approval and may make it useful for the Muslims and a source of His Pleasure in the Hereafter.

This is also the first book of my son Mr. Muhammad Imran Ashraf Usmani which reflects his literary interest. May Allah grant him a long peaceful life and make this book his first step towards a brilliant academic future and prologue to numerous greater services to Islam and Muslims.

It may also influence his nature, and attitude. Islamic teachings have also encouraged the Muslims to select a meaningful and good name for their wards. Muhammad Imran Ashraf Usmani has compiled the present comprehensive guidebook to fulfil the need of the Muslim families.

I just got the package delivered. The books look in good condition from outside. Thanks again. It is always a pleasure doing business with you.
Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
