Guiding Western readers through the endlessly fascinating and complicated system of Islamic personal names, Annemarie Schimmel's directory touches upon almost every aspect of Islamic life.


The structure of a name; born on a Friday - the naming of a child; help from God - religious name giving; mothers of the faithful - the naming of girls; lions, moons and roses - the nickname or Laqab; a name too heavy to bear - changes and transformations of names.
