Meaning name muskan

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


The term muskan is actually an Urdu language word and its means a smile; the meaning of the name is good and thus the name muskan is perfectly acceptable for a believer.


Islam has not assigned the believer any specific names which are permissible to keep; one may keep any name one likes in any language, provided the name does not have an inherent evil meaning, or the name connotes shirk or disbelief.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
