Britain Loves “Muhammad ” most Popular boys name

Vollbild anzeigen

According the new Government Statistics Mohammed is the most popular boys name in the west Midlands region. The Office for National Statistics said 638 boys born in the West Midlands were called Mohammed. Last year Muhammad topped the London list, with 768 boys in the Capital being given that name last year. Furthermore 557 were called Muhammad.


The two spellings of the name both figure in the top ten adding up enough to beat Harry – made trendy by the roguish charm of the nation’s prince. Of course, if proud parents did want to name their son after the 4th in line to the throne they should have used his proper name Henry, of which Harry is the derivative.

The word “Muhammad” is derived from the Arabic root word “hamd” meaning “praise”. It is the emphatic passive particle of that root and can be translated as “the Oft-Praised One”.
As for Ahmad, it is the superlative form of the same root word “hamd”. It means “the Highly Praised One”.
Ahmad is the name Jesus (peace be upon him) mentioned when he foretold of his coming.

Allah says: “And when Jesus son of Mary said: O Children of Israel! Lo! I am the Messenger of Allah unto you, confirming that which was revealed before me in the Torah, and bringing glad tidings of a Messenger who will come after me, whose name will be ‘the Highly Praised One’ (Ahmad).” [Sûrah al-Saff: 6]

Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) enumerated a number of his names when he said: “I have many names: I am Muhammad. I am Ahmad. I am al-Mâhî (the Obliterator) by whom Allah obliterates disbelief. I am al-Hâshir (the Gatherer) who gathers the people at my feet. I am al-`Aqib (the Successor) whom none comes after.”[Sahîh al-Bukhârî and Sahîh Muslim]


Siobhan Freegard founder of the website Netmums says “Baby names are a fascinating snapshot of the country’s culture and, while we’re still wild about Harry and Amelia, this year’s two biggest baby name trends are Edwardian-style names and posh becoming common”.

“Many mums are looking back into their family tree and selecting great-grandparents’ names, while others are seeking names which would have seemed stuffy a decade ago but fit with the current retro vibe across the UK.”

Several countries – such as Germany, Sweden, China and Japan – also restrict names. Why? A Turkish couple in Germany were not allowed to call their baby Osama Bin Laden.

In 1993 a Japnese couple were prohibited to name their child Akuma, meaning “devil”. Authorities in these countries can say no if they don’t think the name is appropriate. The UK and the US have much more liberal naming laws.

Chief executive of Birmingham Muslim education group the Sultan Bahu Trust, Dr Khurshid Ahmed, regards the list as an indication of diversity in the midlands. He adds “it’s a way of people showing affection for the Prophet, as well as showing unity amongst the community”.

We all remember the pictures across the internet contrasting two major religions and how they evolved over the decades. Islam is growing at a rapid pace. The alleged urban legend has reached legendary credibility and its reputation is becoming a tangible reality. The number of Muslim in The UK has risen from 3 percent of the population to 4.8 per cent – 2,7 million people.

Britain on a national scale has more aging Population in general, however half of the British Muslims are under 25, a quarter of Christains are approaching their eighth decade. The estimate for British Muslims again i must stress it promising. If Allah wills we will have more active Muslims in Britain than Churchgoers. Let me empathize on this point, we are not responsible for any of this rather it is to we who have ascribe this to Allah

In the past ten years, there has been a decrease in people in England and Wales identifying as Christian, from 71.7 per cent to 59.3 per cent of the population. A 2011 Census suggested that 33.2 million people in England and wales described themselves as Christians.

The future looks bright for Muslim and Non-Muslim, privileged to experience Islam first hand is a vital component in today’s misinformed society about Islam.
