Pearl of Wisdom

Narrating from Ja'far: 'Fatima (AS) came to Abu Bakr asking for her inheritance, and 'Abbas b. 'Abd al-Mutalib also asked for his inheritance and 'Ali (AS) came with them. Abu Bakr said, 'The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'We do not leave inheritance; whatever we leave is charity', so whoever the Prophet was responsible for in their livelihood, I am responsible for.' 'Ali (AS) said, 'Solomon inherited from David , and Zacharias said, ' who may inherit from me and inherit from the House of Jacob. Abu Bakr said, 'That is right, but by Allah you know the same as what I know.' Then 'Ali said, 'This is the Book of Allah talking. So they ['Ali, Fatima and 'Abbas] kept quiet and left.'

Question : #120 Category: Family Issues
Subject: naming my Islamic children
Question: Salam Sheikh,
Soon i will be having my first child, and we don't know yet if it will be male or female. My question is based on what criteria should we decide the child's name, is there hadith or ayah from the Holy Quran to assist with this.
Thanks
Answer: Salaam alaykum,

I pray that the child is born healthy. There are traditions which state that it is recommended to name a child by the name of the prophet, imams, other prophets, or using the characteristics of Allah - such as Abd al-Qadir, Abd al-Alim, etc.

Names taken from the Quran are also recommended, such as Kawthar.
