Keeping the names of the Ambiyaa and Sahaabah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I’ve 3 kids namely:

1. Hoor ul Ain

2. Hujjaj Khan

3. Ajmer Khan

Kindly advise if these names are suitable from an Islamic point of view or not. If not, kindly suggest other names.


A: We have not come across these names. You may keep the names of the Ambiyaa (alaihimus salaam) like Muhammad, Ebrahim, Yusuf, or the names of the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhum) like Abdullah, Abu Bakr, Umar etc.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
