Dictionary of Islamic Names and the definition of each one.

The first lesson given to Adam (PBUH) after his creation was the knowledge of names, which established his superiority over the angels, and became the reason for their prostration to him.

Although the Holy Qur’an does not give the names that Adam (PBUH) was taught, it  does say that the earliest form of knowledge imparted to man by his Creator was the knowledge of names. The first lesson also established the identity of objects and human beings from the beginning.

Through the Holy Qur’an the Creator got Himself identified by His Name (Allah) and reinforced this identity through His various Attributive Names, asserting that one can call Him by anyone of His beautiful names, as the Holy Qur’an says:

The Most Beautiful Names belong to Allah.”

Besides the identity  of the individual, names also reflect the religion, moral values, nation and the country of persons.Therefore, neonate babies should be given good names.

Children are a great blessing of Allah, termed as blossoms of Paradise by the Messenger of Allah (PBUH).

The best way of expressing joy on the birth of a child is to  express gratitude to Allah for this favor. Feeling hurt and disappointed at the birth of a daughter is against the teachings of Islam, and unbecoming for a Muslim.

In the Holy Qur’an Allah asserts that:

“To Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. He creates what He wills. He bestows female (offspring) upon whom He wills, and bestows male (offspring) upon whom He wills, Or He bestows both males and females, and He renders barren whom He wills.”

    Mohsen Haredy

    Thank you for contacting us. We do not provide this service. You can consult specialized books on this area.



I am searching for a name to call myself that will reflect the nature of who I see myself to be in spirit.

I seek the truth, and hope for guidance from the “CREATOR”, before I claim, and proclaim my indigenous nationality.

How do I choose a name that embodies the meaning “Seeker of truth and hope”? Can you suggest a few full moorish examples that are unassuming, yet easy to pronounce? Also, for various regions with translation and how it is written?

I was born and live in the Central American United States, thus seek to claim my natural moorish heritage.

I thank you for your learned response, It will be most appreciated!
