Can a boy be named ARHAM?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 734/557/D=8/1438)

Someone may be named as Arham but it is better to name someone with the names in which the relation of slavery towards some attributes of Allah is found such as, Abdur Rahman, Abdur Rahim. It is also good to name after the names of the Companions, for example, Talha, Zubair, Khalid, Tayyib, etc.

Allah knows Best!
