    Hehe, I can read but not fully understand. The "Tasgheer" made me excited lol.

    This is what brother Ayman told me. Uthman becomes Uthaymeen, Umar becomes Umayr. There is some Arabic grammar I really like reading, although it takes some time to grasp.

    Assalaamu alaykum,

    May be,yes. other thing that may be The difference lies in Pakistani ascent and tone, that is what I infer. Like if they want to speak ‘you’ they would say ‘tenu’. Indians would say ‘tune’.One word two pronunciations with same meaning.

    Generally some pakistani speak naturally in hype tone i.e can’t murmer lol.

    One more very popular name, usually given to females. Sometimes given to males too...

    Arshi -> depending on how it is interpreted might mean "My Arsh" or From Arsh or someone who is attributed to 'arsh.

    There is only Allah on 'Arsh. And Highness, that of being high above the creation is one of the attributes of Allah Alone.

    wa alykkum salaam.

    yes. a famous scientist and very famous among children.
    (a trivial and less known fact is that he has an elder brother, a pious person (Allah knows what he conceals), who didnt accept Abdul Kalaam's offer to live in president's home and continued to live in his humble home. By Allah, if you see him you wont believe he is a relative of the president of india. Subhan Allah)

    coming to the point, can anyone tell me what does 'Abdul Kalaam' mean? (just curious)

    Abdul Kalam actually means "The Slave of Talking".

    Okay so me asking now. How can one be a slave of "talking". Thats nonsense. Like we are all slave of Allah. Is it actually allowed in Islam to have that name?

    Apparently according to some people, you can. Not sure about the exact animal you mentioned though. But I've come across a brother named 'Asad', meaning Lion. Lol Subhanak!

    PS. Brother wannabemuslim, I believe the correct term in Arabic for water would be, Maa'..or is it not?

    I just read an article and it said that Ghulaam is a Persian/Urdu word which means the same as 'abd in Arabic.

    Ghulaam in Arabic actually means 'boy/young boy'. There are several ayaahs in the Qur'an that mention it. One in particular that I can remember is in Surat Yusuf, 'Qaala yaa bushraa haadhaa ghulaam' - "...He said, what good news! Here's a Boy!"
    Another in surat Kahf, 'wa amma-al-ghulaamu fakaana abawaahu..' - "And as for the Boy, his parents were believers.."

    And also the hadeeth in which the prophet says, 'ya ghulaam(forgot the Arabic words for the next part, but next comes...), wa kul bi yamiinik wa kul mimmaa yaliik' - "O' boy! Mention the name of Allaah and eat with your right(hand) and eat what is nearer to you"(Bukhaari)
