Firozabad, 22nd January 2024: In a heartwarming gesture of communal harmony and unity, a Muslim family in Ramgarh celebrated the consecration of Lord Shri Ram in Ayodhya by naming their newborn born on Monday. The family believes that the name they’ve chosen, “Ram Rahim,” not only pays homage to Maryada Purushottam Ram but also symbolises the spirit of brotherhood shared between Hindus and Muslims.
Farzana, a 30-year-old resident of Ramgarh, was admitted to the Medical College Women’s Hospital for delivery on Sunday night. She had a normal delivery at 7:30 am on Monday, giving birth to a healthy baby boy. Both mother and child are reported to be in good health. This marks Farzana’s third child, following the births of two girls.
Expressing their happiness over the auspicious birth coinciding with the Pran Pratishtha Mahotsav of Ramlala, the family decided to name their newborn “Ram Rahim.” The name holds a dual significance, encompassing the revered figure of Maryada Purushottam Ram in Hinduism and the attribute “Rahim,” associated with mercy and compassion in Islamic tradition. The family sees this name as a bridge between the two religions, reflecting the shared values of love and brotherhood.
The gesture of naming the child “Ram Rahim” stands as a testament to the inclusive spirit that transcends religious boundaries, fostering unity and understanding in the community.
