Muslim Names for Girls and Boys

Muslim names for girls and boys are important as their culture recognizes the significance of names. In the Bible’s book of Genesis, God began changing names. He started with Abram who became Abraham, and Sarai, who became Sarah. Abraham is considered the father of the Islamic population. Notice that the ‘H’ was added, causing the combination ‘AH’. Sarai’s name also changed to have an ‘AH’ combination in it. ‘AH’ is a letter combination that represents being on mission for the Divine. This letter depicts being able to align one’s will with what is perceived to be the will of the divine. In the name Abraham, an extra ‘A’ was also added in Abram’s name. This ‘A’ would change the number of ‘A’s from two to three. ‘A’s refer to spirituality, hence more ‘A’s would bring more spiritual understanding. Incredible how Abraham and Sarah’s life changed once their names changed.
