Pearl of Wisdom

Dissimulation was established to withhold blood from being shed, so if dissimulation extends to bloodshed then there is no dissimulation. By Allah, if you are called to aid us you would say: 'We will not, rather we will dissimulate', then dissimulation would be more beloved to you than your fathers and mothers, and if the Awaited Saviour was to appear he would not need to ask you for it, and he would uphold the penalty of Allah among those of you who are hypocrites.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Wasa'il al-Shi'a, v. 11, p. 483, no. 2

Question : #448 Category: Miscellaneous
Subject: naming a child
Question: ASSALAMVALAIKUM,can we put the name SHERAZ AHAMED to newly born child & please give me the meaning according QURAN
Answer: You may place such a name on newly born child.

Sheraz or Shiraz is a Muslim male name referring to one as sweet.
Ahmed is also a Muslim male name which means one that his highly praised, such as one who has dhikr of Allah (swt).

The name has its origins in a prophecy from Jesus Christ, mentioned once in the Quran in Surah 61: The Ranks.

61:6 And [this happened, too,] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said: "O children of Israel! Behold, I am an apostle of God unto you, [sent] to confirm the truth of whatever there still remains of the Torah, and to give [you] the glad tiding of an apostle who shall come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed."

But when he [whose coming Jesus had foretold] came unto them with all evidence of the truth, they said: "This [alleged message of his] is [nothing but] spellbinding eloquence!"
