Assalam mulaikum, I am a revert to Islam and married my husband around 4 months ago, we are expecting a baby boy in a couple of weeks. Our relationship up until now was really good. My husband is now saying if our child does not have a strong Muslim name he will have nothing to do with either me or our child, and he will not be on the birth certificate or in our lives at all. The names that I have suggested for the baby all have really good meaning behind them despite them not being Muslim names. He is now making me feel guilty that I would be taking the opportunity for the baby to bond with his farther and be in his life. Really need some guidance on what to do in this situation. Please reply
