    Dear Brothers and Sisters,

    Greetings in the name of Allah, most Merciful!

    I wish to let you know that, finally, after a long struggle, I have accepted Islam and took the Shahada early this morning! (If any of your are familiar with Sheik Yusuf Estes, he and others witnessed my shahada in his voice chat room through islamtomorrow.com) Please pray for me as I will certainly pray for all of you!

    Love, For the Sake of Allah,
    Joslyn

    PS. I am still thinking of a Muslim name to take... any suggestions would be helpful! :)

    Alhamdallah! More and more Christians are turning to Islam after seeing its truth; me and you are witnesses to this fact. Welcome here, by the way. May Allah bless you and call you a devoted servent of his on the Day of Judgement!

    Some great names (in my opinion):
    Fatimah
    A'isha (also spelled Ayesha)
    Khadijah
    Latifah (means Rachel)

    Someone has already put up a list of Muslim names, so you'd be better off there.

    Some links to get you started:
    http://madinaharabic.com - Site teaching Arabic; you'll need to know it to read the 100% accurate version of the Qur'an (available in Arabic only)
    http://freequran.org/order/new_muslim.php - Enter your name and address and get a free Qur'an (Abdullah Yusuf Ali translation along with the Arabic next to the English) and other books to help you get started in Islam/Dawah (preaching the truth to others). Don't worry; it's trustworthy as that's where I got my Qur'an and some other books (including 40 Hadith).

    Assalamo Alaykom

    Good news that you took shahada and may Allah guide you to the right path.

    By the way good news in Arabic means (Boshra) and Boshra one of the female names.

    mashallah

    Assalam Alaikum Joslyn,

    Mashallah I'm an sincerely very happy for you, today you filled my day with joy to know that even though I'm having a bad day (headache...too much studying lol), someone elses day has been filled with light and happiness. I pray that Allah will always be pleased with yourself and your loved ones, and that you are able to guide other people to find the truth in this world and come back to their original fitrah state:) You really make me happy, and for the sake of Allah I love you very much. Inshallah if we are both good and Allah is pleased with us, perhaps we will meet one day! I have to say there are soooo many Muslim female names to choose from and my only advice is to pick a name that has a good meaning, or was from a a sister in history who had admirable traits, because I have often heard that the name a person gives has a lot to do with the persona they take on. I think it's more of an ideological and symbolic idea than an actual fact if you know what i mean. In any case, I have just put below a few names that you may like, and of course there are plenty more. As basic of islam wrote, i think there isn't anywhere in the Quran or Sunnah where it explicity states that you should change your name per se, but of course, we are taught in the Quran and Sunnah not to resemble the unbelievers, so perhaps that is enough of a reason to change your name, whatever you choose may Allah be pleased with you.

    Farheen (happiness)
    Noreen
    Farhat (happiness)
    Noora
    Mehry or Mehri
    Tabassum (Smile)
    Juveiria
    Sana
    Sarah
    Nazia
    Tasnim (a river in Paradise)
    Fareesa
    Masarath
    Leyla or Leila
    Afrose
    Afsheen
    Madiha
    Hajira
    Ruksana
    Hana
    Noor
    Safa (clarity, purity, serenity)
    Zelaikha

    And one of my most favourite names is Iman (faith) and Haneefa/Hanifa (true believer) and also Qura-tul-aine (coolness of the eyes... remember the Prophet PBUH referred to salat as the coolness of His eyes, so that's why I like this name)

    a link with some names:

    http://www.batkhela.com/islam/female-islamic-names.html?page=6


    P.S. Sister, I wish that in your quest for knowledge, I know this may sound silly and i don't mean for it to be offensive but just always please use as much logic as possible when learning about Islam. If something doesn't sound right or doesn't sit well with you, ask about it, because it could be that it is a 'cultural' understanding of Islam or just someone giving a narrow-minded view. Islam is a religion that is easy for the believers, and while life is a test, Islam is not supposed to be 'hard' to follow. I hope this helps inshallah.
