Ramadan: Can anyone list some Arabic names with good meanings?
Muhammad: the most praised
'Abdullah: slave of Allah (after 'Abd you can add any of Allah's 99 names)
Sajid: one who prostrates
'Umar: I don't know the meaning but he was the 2nd khalifah
Uthman: 3rd khalifah
We're also encouraged to name boys after the Prophets, so that gives you about 25 more choices
Mariam: one of the greatest women to ever live
Asiyah: another on of the greatest women
Salma: peaceful; healthy; safe
Shaista: polite, courteous
Hope this helps.
Assalamu Alaikum :)
Ramadan: How would you respond to the well known argument surrounding verses 86:5-7 from Surah At-Tariq?
The people who can probably answer this are sleeping or not here.
Users like Rosy Pearl, Abdulmalik, Susan, Ibn Saba may have the answer..
But i would just like to say wikipedia is a site that is edited by anyone so i wouldnt take it as a reliable source.
I dont really understand what your question is soo i cant really say anything.
Edit: this is the whole of the surah:
In the name of Allah the most gracious the most merciful
1. By the heaven, and At-Tariq (the night-comer, i.e. the bright star);
2. And what will make you to know what At-Tariq (night-comer) is?
3. (It is) the star of piercing brightness;
4. There is no human being but has a protector over him (or her) (i.e. angels incharge of each human being guarding him, writing his good and bad deeds, etc.)
5. So let man see from what he is created!
6. He is created from a water gushing forth
7. Proceeding from between the back-bone and the ribs,
8. Verily, (Allah) is Able to bring him back (to life)!
9. The Day when all the secrets (deeds, prayers, fasting, etc.) will be examined (as to their truth).
10. Then will (man) have no power, nor any helper.
11. By the sky (having rain clouds) which gives rain, again and again.
12. And the earth which splits (with the growth of trees and plants),
13. Verily! This (the Qur'an) is the Word that separates (the truth from falsehood, and commands strict legal laws for mankind to cut the roots of evil).
14. And it is not a thing for amusement.
15. Verily, they are but plotting a plot (against you O Muhammad ()).
16. And I (too) am planning a plan.
17. So give a respite to the disbelievers. Deal you gently with them for a while.
Ramadan, do you see the Western influence having either a positive or negative effect...?
Honestly I see it quite holistically. To be honest, it has postives for example you can give dawah 2 non-muslims, your imaan increases when you see how Allah has bestowed faith to you, you get tested more in the west and Allah gives you rewards. There are many people who have an bad interpretation of Islam, so by being a muslim you can show them what Islam really is about through action and speech.
However there are negatives for example in the west, you get influenced, peer pressure, some people are anti-islamic, sometimes your imaan decreases because of the influences, you have to be patient, sometimes people mock Islam and your deen. The list goes on:
I am in London because it is my home town and the country I was born in. As I practise now, it is hard and it is a struggle, but the thing is, we must stay patient whilst living in the west.
I do not know much about him but I do know people will always slander those are actually support those that they are against
Tarik Ramadan is the man in this video - absolutely flawless
