Muslims form a large part of the world population and have some of the loveliest names. Though there are different sub-categories among the Muslims, some traditions are common for all. One such is the baby-naming tradition. A baby is named on the seventh day after birth. The baby’s hair is also tonsured on this day.
Muslims believe that they are called by their names on the Judgement Day, and so the baby names have to be meaningful, pleasant, and good. No wonder, their names are pleasant to the ear.
