Q: Can a woman replace her father’s name with her husband’s name after marriage? Some friends sent me a post which says that it is strictly forbidden in Islam to add my husband’s name with my name instead of my father. They have reasoned that if it was permissible, then Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) wives would have done the same, which they did not.
A: Yes, she can.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
