Question: Assalamu Alaikum
I just got a cat and wanted to name her Mu’izza, because I read somewhere that that was the name of the Prophet’s favorite cat. Are there limitations in naming animals?
Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.
In general, you can name your pet as you wish.
However, avoid doing so using the names of the Prophets and the Companions.
And Allah alone gives success.
