It is the human custom to give name to their children at the seventh or eighth day of his birth, they give name to their other belongings apart from child, for identification purpose. But name serves more purpose than this. Have you forgot that Allah taught Adam the name of everything and made him a respected one in the sight of the angels but Shaytan received the wrath of Allah for not obedient. When you know the
name of things, you are excel in knowledge. Just know the names of things and do not forget again.

Allah gave name to many of His servants from the scripture like Maryam Yahya Ahmad and others. He
called them by their names like Yaa Musa, (O Musa!), Yaa Muhammad (O Muhammad!). If name is not
important God will not call His servant by their name in the scriptures.

The Prophet also said the responsibility of a good parent on a child is to give a good name to the child,
like the name of Allah, e.g Abdullah Abdul-Rahman. The name of the prophets like Ibrahim, Musa,
Dawud. And the name of the righteous like Uthman, Alli, Shittu e.t.c.

The other contemporaries of names is what the Arabic call Quniya or Laqob. Your alias and your
attributes. The A.K.A (alias) of Abdullah Ibn Abu Quafa is Abu Bakr (The Female Father) but, everyone
knows him as Abu Bakr. The attribute of the prophet is Abu Qasim (The Father of Qasim) or Rasulillahi
(The Messenger of Allah).
It is good to give yourselves good name, good nick name and good attribute like a “golden child, humble
boy, a child of paradise or the righteous friend”. The name you call yourself materializes, look at our
president Good Luck Jonathan. The luck work for him. It was accounted that:
 In his primary school, he was the assistant class captain, the luck work for him he became the class captain.
 The same thing happened to him in his secondary school
 The luck also work for him when he was the assistant senior boy, he became the senior boy
 In the University he was the assistant class governor, the luck gave a chance to him he became the class governor.
 He was the Vice President of the Student Union, his luck materialized he became the President of the Union
 Look at him again in politics, from Commissioner  Deputy Governor The Governor Vice President, now he has become the President of Federal Republic of Nigeria, the highest cadre. It is God who put one in position and its He that remove at appropriate time.
