Meaning of Ridwan

Ridwan (also spelled as Rizwan) is a Quranic name for boys and girls that means contentment, being in a state of obedience toward Allah and piety,  gaining the pleasure and acceptance of Allah. It is mentioned directly in the Quran 13 times.

Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves. Thou (O Muhammad) seest them bowing and falling prostrate (in worship), seeking bounty from Allah and (His) acceptance. The mark of them is on their foreheads from the traces of prostration. Such is their likeness in the Torah and their likeness in the Gospel – like as sown corn that sendeth forth its shoot and strengtheneth it and riseth firm upon its stalk, delighting the sowers – that He may enrage the disbelievers with (the sight of) them. Allah hath promised, unto such of them as believe and do good works, forgiveness and immense reward. (Quran 48:29)

Never forget that the life of this world is only a game and a passing delight, a show, and mutual boasting and trying to outrival each other in riches and children. It is like the growth of vegetation after the rain, which delights the planter, but which then withers away, turns yellow and becomes worthless stubble. In the life to come there will be a terrible punishment, or God’s forgiveness and approval: the life of this world is nothing but means of deception. (Quran 57:20)

    As a girl, I’m often made fun of for my name because a lot of people think it is only for men. But I don’t care I love my name. And I love my mother for given me that name even if other people mocked or disapproved. Allhamdullilah!
