Meaning of names

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.


Muhammad: the literal meaning of the term Muhammad would be one who is worthy of praise, and was obviously the name assigned to the Last and Final Messenger of Allah (saws).


Salmaan: one who is safe and secure or in peace; also the name of one of the close companions of the Prophet (saws); Salmaan al-Farsi (r.a.).


Umairah: literally means a habitation


Sireen: was the name of (more than) one of the believing females at the time of the Prophet (saws); one of the close companion of the Prophet (saws), Hadrat Abdullah ibn Masuds (r.a.) daughters name was Sireen; also the name of the sister of Hadrat Mariya Qibtiyyah (r.a.) was Sireen.


A name assigned to each individual is no more than a sign or recognition of that person; and there is absolutely no obligation or compulsion in Shariah that a believer is obliged or required to keep a traditional Islamic or muslim name. One is at complete liberty to assign any good wholesome name to their off-spring in absolutely any language they will or please.


The only names which Islam prohibits from assigning to a believer are names which connote or denote polytheism or disbelief (Abdul-Lat, Abdul-Uzza, (slaves of the pagan gods like Lat and Uzza, etc.) or names like Ramdas (slave of the Hindu god Ram), etc.; or names which have an inherit evil or vile meaning.


Other than names which connote polytheism and disbelief, or names which have an inherently evil meaning.Islam has allowed the believers the complete freedom to chose and assign any good wholesome name in any language they will and please.


The names Muhammad Salmaan and Umairah Sireen are perfectly good and more than acceptable names to be assigned to ones believing off-springs, if indeed one wishes to do so.


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,
