Muslim names in English for girls: Here we have shared some Muslim names for girls/women beginning with K upto N.
Importance of good names:
Names are not only a source of personal identity but also have a profound effect on a person's personality. Those who adhere to Islamic and religious values and traditions are encouraged to name their children after having Islamic traditions and values, but these names should be an expression of devotion and attachment to the real Creator, God, the Lord of Glory, and the Benefactor of humanity, Muhammad (PBUH).
Our names are also a manifestation of our national identity, names that express our beliefs, thoughts, culture, temperament, and mentality. One of the innumerable gifts of God, the Lord of Glory, is that children are a great and enduring blessing. It is very important to name a child after birth. Having a good and Islamic name for the child is also a way of expressing gratitude to God.
Hadith about Names:
The religion of Islam, being a complete code of conduct, has guided us successfully in all walks of life. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Surely good names are 'Abd Allaah and' Abd al-Rahmaan.” (Sahih Muslim - Kitab al-Adab, Hadith number: 5587 / Sunan Abi Dawood Hadith number: 4949).
"Put your name in the name of the prophets, the most beloved names in the sight of Allah are Abdullah and Abdul Rahman. And the truest names are Harith (the one who works hard, the one who accumulates wealth) and Hammam (the one with high intentions, determination) and the worst names are Harb (war) and Marah (bitter)" (Sunan Abi Dawood, Kitab al-Adab Hadith No. 4950 / Musnad Ahmad 4/543).
Therefore, it is the duty of Muslim parents to give their children a good, meaningful, and Islamic name. It is known from various ahaadeeth that whenever the Holy Prophet (PBUH) heard someone's bad or disliked name, he would immediately change it and suggest a good name.
