1. Some people have names like Nasir. It is the name of Allah. Though it is not sifati name of Allah. Is it right to have such names for makhlooq/humans?
2. People use the names like ‘Azeem’ in urdu to refer qualities of humans. Also they use ‘Zabardast’ and such words to refer quality of Allah and humans also. Is this right to use these words for humans although these words or their meaning is sifati name of / specific to Allah in Arabic? Or is this ‘shirk’?
1. It is permissible. The meaning of Nasir is helper.
2. Refer to http://muftionline.co.za/node/4366
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
