Naming Children

عن ربعى بن عبد الله قال : قيل لابي عبد الله عليه السلام : جعلت فداك انا نسمى باسمائكم واسماء آبائكم فينفعنا ذلك ؟ فقال : أي والله وهل الدين الا الحب ؟ قال الله " ان كنتم تحبون الله فاتبعوني يحببكم الله ويغفر لكم ذنوبكم

Rab’ee ibn Abdollah said to Imam Jafer al Sadiq (P), O! My life for you, “We name our children after your name and the names of your revered ancestors. Is this beneficial for us. ”The Imam replies, “Yes, by Allah, Is faith anything else than love for the pious (and hate towards the profane!"), as Says :Say: If you love Allah, then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your faults, and Allah is Forgiving, MercifuL " al - Emran - 31".
