Meaning of Adam

Adam is a direct Quranic name for boys that refers to the first human that God created, who was also the first prophet, peace be upon him. Adam according to some linguists is related to Adeem, which means “dust”, since God created Adam from dust, or from Admah, which means “surface of the Earth”. The word Adam mentioned 20 times in the Quran.

BEHOLD, God raised Adam, and Noah, and the House of Abraham, and the House of `Imran above all mankind. (Quran 3:33)

Verily, in the sight of God, the nature of Jesus is as the nature of Adam, whom He created out of dust and then said unto him, “Be” – and he is. (Quran 3:59)

    Hello is it true that if you name your child Adam your child will always be sick? My son’s name is Adam and he’s 2 years old. Also what is the proof of that saying. Jazakum Allah Khayir

  17. on Monday 6th of August 2018 06:34:12 AM

    Aadam is a blessed name, the name of a great prophet and whom Allaah Azza wa Jal made with His Own Blessed Hands.

    Naming a boy Aadam is good. You are following the sunnah too. The prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said name your children after the names of Allaah and the Anbiyaa.

    The name Aadam does not make a child sick. This is pure ignorance and superstition. If a child is unwell its not due to a name, do ruqyaa for the child, or seek a good Homeopathic doctor for treatment.
