Changing one’s name after accepting Islam
Q: I reverted to Islam one year ago yet I didn’t change my name in the certificate because I’m receiving scholarships with that old name. Is it permissible to receive that scholarship under a kuffar’s identity?
A: It is permissible. However if you are able to change your name, then this will be better.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
