Keeping the names Israa’eel and Binyaameen

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it permissible to name a Muslim child Isra’eel or Benyamin? What’s the correct spelling of both?

Bismillaah

A: Yes. There is no exact equivalent for the Arabic alphabets in the english language. A close spelling will be Israa’eel and Binyaameen.

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