Is It Wrong to Name My Baby Miraj in Islam?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Shaykh Abdul-Rahim Reasat

Question: Assalamu alaykum

Is it wrong to name my baby Miraj in Islam?

Answer: Wa ‘alaykum as-salam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh

Thank you for your question.

There is nothing wrong with naming a child Miraj as it is not inherently impermissible, nor does it have a negative meaning. The Messenger of Allah said, ‘Indeed you will called by your names and the names of your fathers on the Day of Judgement, so [choose] good names’ (Abu Dawud).

And Allah knows best.
