3. Adam

Non-Muslim Adams, this applies to you to! The first-known Adam is also the first human created by God; so really, it’s an honour to be named after our oldest ancestor.

Adam In The Garden Of Eden Genesis 2:7-8


4. Ahmad

I can’t keep track of lads with this name whom I’ve met in my short lifetime. Meaning ‘praiseworthy’, I salute all Ahmads out there who have endured turning their heads countless times upon hearing the name, only to realise it was meant for another Ahmad.



5. Zikri

How does it feel like to be a walking ‘reminder of Allah’ every day of your life? Quite a privilege, we’d say.



6. Rayyan

Hey, the Malay version of ‘Ryan’! This name means ‘Gate of heaven’, so perhaps all Rayyans and Ryans stand a better chance of passing through to paradise?



7. Akmal

You know how people like to ask what three qualities describe you best? Complete. Perfect. Soulful. Akmals are said to be loving and adore companionship. They are peace makers and don’t resort to violence. Beware though, their tongue can be as sharp as a knife when upset.




8. Amirul

Usually the silly one of the bunch, they like making people smile and laugh. Take this screenshot (and yes someone actually posted this), from Urban Dictionary for example:



9. Umar

Reminds you of ‘umur’ (age) doesn’t it? That’s because it’s related: Umar means ‘life and longevity’!




10. Daniel

Another one for the non-Muslim Daniels! You guys are probably the most modest lot, with a name that means ‘God is my judge’.



11. Haziq

The Muslim version of Einstein! Haziqs are known for their aptitude as skillful and intelligent men.



12. Aqil

Dear Aqils out there: Whenever you’re feeling down, look upon your name for inspiration, for it means ‘wisdom’!
