How will one called on the day of Qiyamah?

Q: When we ask ulama the following question: “How will be called on the day of Qiyamah?” In the reply, there may be any of three answers:

  1. By mother’s name [as mostly people say].
  2. By father’s name except Hadhrat ‘Isa (alaihis salaam). [I read it in Ahsanul Fataawa vol. 9 Pg.29]
  3. Some people will be called by their mothers’ name and some will be called by fathers’ name. [An Alim told me it is written in the footnotes of Abu Dawood 320]

​Please tell me the most correct opinion on this subject matter.

A: There are three opinions in this mas’alah. The first opinion is that people will be called by their fathers name on the day of Qiyaamah. The second opinion is that they will be called by their mothers name. The third opinion is that some people will be called by their fathers name while others will be called by their mothers name.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
