Which Name Should I Choose for My Child?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Shaykh Abdul-Rahim Reasat


Three days ago, we were blessed with a baby boy and finalized the name Wali.” However, we’re confused about whether we should name him Wali Mohammed Khan or Mohammed Wali Khan?


Mubarak. May Allah bless your child with a healthy, happy life filled with deeds that please Him.

Either order for the name is perfectly fine. Go with whatever order pleases you. Many people place the name Muhammadbefore the second name, but the choice is yours.

May Allah grant you all the best of both worlds.
