Keeping the title Sahaabah with one’s name

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I want to ask if one can name his son Muhammad Zubair Sahabi or Muhammad Elias Sahabi etc.

Can one keep the title “Sahabi” or can one keep the title as “Sahaba or Sahabah”. For examaple Muhammad Ebrahim Sahaba, Muhammad Yousuf Sahabah.

Can this title be for both male and female child?


A: Just keep the name Muhammad Zubair.

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