    In reply to No. 4, In (where Sheikh Salih Al-Munajjid is the overseer) question about naming your daught Firdaws or Jannah was answered. Here is a summary below:
    There is no evidence – as far as we know – that calling a girl Firdaws or Jannah is not allowed. So there is nothing wrong with using these names.

    These are names that carry good and beautiful meanings.

    “Firdaws in Arabic refers to a garden in which all kinds of plants grow, and Jannah is a garden in which there are palm trees and other kinds of trees.
