Choosing a meaningful Muslim name for your baby is considered to be one of the first major duties of parenthood.

Traditionally, Muslim parents officially name their baby on the seventh day after the child is born. Although most Muslims are not Arabic by ethnicity, the Arab and Persian language is still very important to Muslims and often provides inspiration for an Arabic name.
