The name of baby Boy

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
We decided the name of my son is Muhammad Hadi Murtaza age of 45 days but one of our relative asked us it is not correct and says that you must change name and decided as Abdul Hadi. But I like name “Muhammad” and all the time I call him Muhammad. Please guide me is it compulsory to decide name Abdul Hadi instead of Muhammad Hadi?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

If you want to keep the word Hadi in the name of your son then you should prefix it with Abd and keep the name Abdul Hadi or Muhammad al-Hadi. You can call your son by the name Muhammad as well.

Allah knows Best!
