My son will be born in around 40 days (insha’allah).
I was wondering has the Prophet (peace be upon him and his household) suggested/recommended any names to name the new born?
If so please provide the ahadeeth.

    I think you are free to name your baby what ever name you like. you don't have to only choose or think about an Islamic name. There are so many non-Islamic meaningful names. I think it's totally depends on your and your wife's wish. In my opinion, you should think about a meaningful name instead either it'll be Islamic or not.

  • Although you might have had named your baby by now, I support above suggestion of Azad, although Abd-Allah(and other names of Allah) are highly advised. Mar 18, 2015 at 13:51

خير الأسماء ماحُمّد وعُبّد

Best names which is prefixed by Mohammad or Abed

This hadeeth shows the best names to give:

For example:





Mohamad Ali

Mohamad Hasan



Best names, according to hadith are Abdullah and Abdur-rehman

Prophet Muhammad said:

"Keep the names of the Noble Prophets,(Sallallaho alaihe Wasallam) Allah, the Exalted, loves most the names Abdullah and Abdur Rahman. "
