Please help in naming my son correctly Mohammed Al Yasaa or Muhammad Yasaa

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
We are planning to name our child based on prophet Al Yasaa name. 6 : سورة الأنعام 86 وَ اِسۡمٰعِیۡلَ وَ الۡیَسَعَ وَ یُوۡنُسَ وَ لُوۡطًا ؕ وَ کُلًّا فَضَّلۡنَا عَلَی الۡعٰلَمِیۡنَ ﴿ۙ۸۶﴾ But we are in dilemma in correct spelling as Mohammed Al Yasaa or Muhammad Yasaa. Some suggest that we should use Muhammad instead of Mohammed. Please help in keeping right name for our child.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(1) Yes, Al-Yasa is good name as it was the name of a prophet thus you may give your child this name Muhammad Al-Yasa.


(2) For the spelling of Muhammad Al-Yasa contact some Alim who is expert in English and Arabic languages. I am not aware of the complicacy of English language.
