Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah.
We'd chosen the name Maryam Saraa, taken after then name of Maryam the mother of Prophet Isaa, and Saraa the first wife of Prophet Ibrahim.
We pray to Allah to grant her Imaan and blessings... To grow up to be muslimah solehah, as Maryam, a woman who got the nickname "Ya Ukhta Haroon", due to her high level of Taqwa and total devotion to Allah.
Allah has said in the Holy Quran, that Maryam was a woman chosen by Allah above other women of the worlds, and she was the only woman in the world who got pregnant without being touched by any man. (Ali Imran, 3: 42-47)
There are 2 surahs (chapters) in the Quran with the name related to Maryam (Surah Ali-Imran, and surah Maryam)
And we pray to Allah to grant our Maryam Saraa a noble heart, like the heart of Sarah, the wife of Prophet Ibrahim and the mother of Prophet Ishaq.
Well actually, we had another name to be given to our next baby after Aaron Houdd (if the baby was happen to be a girl). The name existed even before I got pregnant. What's the name? ---- Mawar Anggun! (the elegant rose). We got the name since we were in Dubai last year...
But during my 6th month of pregnancy, I went to BeingMe conference, and there's a sister name Myriam Francois Cerrah. She's a British, was an actress and reverted to Islam in 2003. She's beautiful and intelligent too! She's one of the speaker of the event and I love her very much. Since then, I fell in love with the name Maryam Saraa :) --> here's a little info about herself http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myriam_Francois-Cerrah
Oh I still love the name Mawar Anggun. It's so classy don't you think so? We found it quite hard to decide which name to give to our lil princess. But yeah, in the end, we decided to choose Maryam Saraa instead of Mawar Anggun. My sis said "Tak payah pening, nama kita kan dah ada kat lauh mahfudz" (dah ditakdirkan la maknenya) hehe....
OK. Baby starts to cry... and Aaron is getting out of control now.... got to go... see u in the next entry inshaAllah :)
