How should we name our kids?

Recommended Posts

Naming children the name of animals or evil creatures is really dreadful. You should call your kids with a name that when you call him or her you feel pleasure and respect. The holy Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him said: 'Name your children after the prophets.' Imam al-Kazim, Shiites’ seventh Imam (pbuh), said, 'The very first act of kindness of a man towards his son is to give him a good name, so keep good names for your children.'[ii] I think the most favorite name can be Muhammad, because it means someone who is praised.


رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله : سَمُّوا أولادَكُم أسماءَ الأنبياءِ

[ii] الإمامُ الكاظمُ عليه السلام : أوَّلُ ما يَبَرُّ الرَّجُلُ وَلَدَهُ أن يُسَمِّيَهُ بِاسمٍ حَسَنٍ، فَلْيُحَسِّنْ أحَدُكُمُ اسمَ وَلَدِهِ

In my opinion giving names related to the Holy Prophet and his Family(as) are best when naming a child. The are not only spiritual benefits which apply to this, but in a practical sense as well. For example, my name is Ali. As I grew up I thought about who I'm named after, and learned about Imam Ali. Today, I model everything I do with Imam Ali in my thoughts, especially my manner and deeds. Therefore, when you give your child a name corresponding to AhlulBayt, your child will naturally be proud of who they are.
