Answer:

 

Meaning name owais

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.

 

Beloved brother in Islam, a name assigned to each individual is no more than a sign or recognition of that person; and there is absolutely no obligation or compulsion in Shariah that a believer is obliged or required to give their children a traditional Islamic or muslim name. One is at complete liberty to assign any good wholesome name to their off-spring in absolutely any language they will or please.

 

The only names which Islam prohibits from assigning to a believer are names which connote or denote polytheism or disbelief (Abdul-Lat, Abdul-Uzza, (slaves of the pagan gods like Lat and Uzza, etc.) or names like Ramdas (slave of the Hindu god Ram), etc.; or names which have an inherit evil or vile meaning.

 

Other than names which connote polytheism and disbelief, or names which have an inherently evil meaning.Islam has allowed the believers the complete freedom to chose and assign any good wholesome name in any language they will and please.

Among the best Islamic names one may assign are Abd-Allah or Abd-ar-Rahmaan. Also, any name whereby one declares his subjugation to one of the many Attributes of Allah, like Abddus-Shukoor, Abdul-Maalik, Abdur-Razzaak, Abdul-Khaalik, etc. are considered good Islamic names.

 

Then there are the names of any of the Prophets of Allah like Adam, Nuh, Ibraheem, Moosa, Yahya, Isa, Idrees, Sulaimaan, Dawood, Mohamed, etc. Any of these names are good names for boys.

 

And then there are the hundreds if not thousands of names of the noble companions of the Last Messenger of Allah (saws) like Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Ali, Bilaal, Salmaan, Hudhaifa, Khalid, Ammaar, Yaasir, etc.

 

If Allah Subhanah blesses one with a daughter, amongst the good names one may assign for their daughters are Maryam, Asiya, Khadijah, Aisha, Hafsa, Safeeyah, Zainab, Fatimah, Ruqaiyyah, etc.

 

The deen of Islam is rich in history from the times of Prophet Adam (a.s.) to the present day And any good name of any of the God-fearing and pious slaves of Allah would make for a good Islamic name for the new born.

 

If one wills, one may choose from any of the terms which possess a good wholesome meaning, like Saleh/Salehah (righteous), Saajid/Saajidah (one who prostrates), Jameel/Jameelah (graceful), Fawwaz (successful), Muhsin (benevolent), etc.

 

Any name which has a good meaning would be perfectly acceptable in Islam.

 

Your Question: please tell me the meaning of the name "OWAIS".

Owais was the name of the one of the noble companions of Prophet Mohamed (saws).

 

Your Question: As the due date of delivery of my wife is in the month of Ramadan, so please give some names related to Ramadan.

Saim / Saimah: one who observes fasts

Ruyyan: the name of a gate in Paradise through which only those who observe regular fasts will be allowed to enter.

Taqi / Taqiyyah: one who is very pious, righteous.

Ateeb: one who is pious, repentant.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
