31245: When naming a girl Fatimah it is not essential to add any another name to that


do we have to add any other name before 'Fatima' like Ghulam Fatima, Kaneez Fatima, Noor Fatima etc? or we can simply name a girl Fatima?

Praise be to Allaah.  

You can call your daughter Fatimah without adding any other name to that. But when we mention Fatimah the daughter of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon her), we say “Faatimah radiya Allaahu ‘anha (may Allaah be pleased with her), because she was one of the Sahaabah and Allaah is pleased with them.

 And Allaah knows best.
