Name alphabet has bearing on child

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Brother in Islam, AOA, May Allah`s blessings be on you for doing such good deeds.My son`s name start with letter M,but someone said that according to his birthday his name should start with N,and if we don`t change his name he will be out of control when he grow up.Can you please guide me that how far it is true. JAKAKALLAH

Name alphabet has bearing on child

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 no one (no idol,  no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


There is absolutely no truth is what the person said,  as the date of the birth or the alphabets of a name have absolutely no bearing on the character of a person.   The believers,  who sincerely believe in Allah and the Last Day,  should not hold or believe such false beliefs and superstitions.


If one changes the name because he fears such false superstitions,  that the alphabet in one’s name or the date of one’s birth has an adverse effect on the child;  it will be considered a major sin in Islam as such beliefs are equivalent to ‘shirk’! 


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


Your Brother in Islam,
