Keeping the name “Aswad”

Q: My brother’s name is “Aswad” but someone told us that the people whose name are “Aswad” their colour will bacome black on the day of qiyaamah. Is that true? If it is true then suggest us another Islamic name please.


A: This is incorrect.

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