Naming Chilrden After The Messengers

Please advise if that is ok to name him in English version as Noah for I live in Canada. When people ask me why I named him Noah and I gladly explain that its the same Prophet Noah that Islam belief in.

Noah’s (sws) Age

The Holy Qur'an states that Noah (sws) preached for almost nine and a half centuries. I believe that average life and physical body traits of mankind has always been the same. A difference of five to ten years is understandable. But what the traditions report about the body structure of Awj b. Aunuq seems far beyond the reality. We can deny it because it has not been affirmed by the Holy Qur'an. But the life span of Noah (sws) has been recorded by the Holy Qur'an which cannot be questioned in any condition. Did all of his disciples live such a long life? Were they like us in their heights or was there some difference? I think that Noah (sws) lived almost five thousand years ago. Four or five thousand years have no significance in the long history of the world and the universe. It does not seem reasonable that five thousand years ago man lived as long as one thousand years. The Holy Qur'an does not say any such thing about any other Messenger of God.

Visting Graves Of The Walis And Awliyas

I was listening to one of the scholars in Pakistan. He said that before prophet (sws) died, he went to the tomb / graves of the martyrs of Uhad. He said that this hadith has consensus and is present in reliable ahadith books. The speech was in the context of visiting the graves of Aulia and Martyrs.


My second questions pertains to Prophet Noah and the flood which came as a punishment in Quran for the addresees of Noah (sws). Your point of view says that the flood only came in that specific area where the addresees of Noah (sws) resided. If this is true then there are suppose to be other people/human beings around the globe which might have their decendents. But in one of your views regarding Gog magog, you said that Noah (sws) has three sons and they are from one of them.

The statement gave the impression that the people on the whole world currently are decendents of those three sons. If that is true then that means the whole world was destroyed in Noah (sws) flood and only Noah (sws) and his followers were saved. Kindly shed some light.

Thirdly, kindly tell that where exactly does the people from the decendents of the tribe gog magog residing in current era, to whom we believe that the rule of the world will transfer before the day of judgment. Are these Americans, British or Chinese?
