Crying of babies


I selected my boy name is
Mohammed zafir(victorious)
And my boy age is 6 month but since 4 month he still crying every night. We checked him doctor , all is ok no problem, no pain but i dont know why he cry every day without reason.
When his mother lift him then he keep quite but sometime after lift also cry. Without any reason.
He birth after 8month delivery, doctor said some babies do like this and it will gone after few month.
Someone said may be because of his name , his name not suit him.
Plz advice me what should i do. Can i change his name.


Waalykum salam

Thank you for your question.

It is quiet normal for some babies to cry a lot. If they don’t have any underlying medical condition then They are colic. It goes away with time.

however, it is good to know that it is narrated from the Prophet (S): “Do not hit your babies since their crying has a meaning. The first 4 months of crying is professing the unity of Allāh (SwT), the second 4 months of crying is sending blessings upon the Prophet (S) and his family and the third 4 months of crying is the baby praying for the parents.” (Ref:Biĥār al-Anwār, vol. 60, pg. 381)
