A dictionary giving meaning or bearing on Islamic heritage of the words, Arabic or Persian, which form parts of Muslim names.

Many Muslims with names that comprise Arabic or Persian words are unaware of their meaning or bearing on Islamic heritage, particularly if they are unfamiliar with these languages. It is important for parents and guardians to devote time to selecting suitable names for children by consulting authentic books on names and re-checking them. This dictionary simplifies this process.

Throughout the world Muslims share similar names, be they in the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, South East Asia or new migrants in the West. Hence, there is a growing interest in the study of Muslim names.

An important source of Muslim names consists of the ninety-nine attributes of Allah mentioned in the Quran and the hadith. According to Islamic belief, the relationship between man and his creator of that of servant and master, and therefore a Muslim feels gratified to be named as a servant of one of the attributes of Allah.

More than a compilation of Muslim names, this dictionary is a reference work pertaining to the broad field of Islam. By way of illustration, the book gives references to Muslims who left their mark on history in different ages, in different fields, and in various parts of the world. For most people, a name appears more significant when it is identified as having been borne by an Imam, a Khalifa, a Mujahid, a Sultan, a saint, an author or a jurist who shaped the history of Islam.
