Hamid, what is its meaning ?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Should the ones that call themselves “Hamid” rather be called “Abdelhamid” instead ?.


Hamid is derived from the Arabic root ‘Hamd’ which means ‘to praise’. Hamid
means ‘the praised one’.

It is permissible to call one only as Hamid.
