Best ways for keeping Islamic names to boys and girls

Rules of naming a baby in Islam

Name of a the child plays very important role in his upbringing life.

Below hadiths tells us the importance of the names and its effects

Once Rasoolullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) called for a volunteer to milk a camel. Four persons volunteered: he refused to accept the services of the first three because their names did not imply pleasantness. The names of the first two were Murrah (bitter) while Jamrah (burning coal) was the name of the third person. When the fourth said his name is Yaeesh (long life) Rasoolullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said to him: "Milk her."

The prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) was very particular about it. The Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) has suggested names of the Prophets or Abdullah and Abdur Rahman.

Following are the hadiths on Importance of giving good names to a child:

HADITH: "On the Day of Qiyaamah you will be called by your (own) names and the names of your fathers. Therefore keep good names." Aboo Dawood.

HADITH: "To whoever is born a child, the child should be given a good name and sound education. And when he becomes of age he should be married."

Rules

1. Every child (person) should be identified by his/her father’s name.

Refer to following verse of Qur’an:

ادْعُوهُمْ لآبَائِهِمْ هُوَ أَقْسَطُ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ
“Call them by the name of their father; that is more just with Allah…”

2. The Names should be good and meaningful
