Praise be to Allah.
Praise be to Allaah.
Some of Allaahs names are also suitable for human beings and it is permissible to use
them, so long as one distinguishes between the meaning applied to the Creator and the
meaning applied to the created being, such as Kareem (generous), Lateef (kind),
Shaheed (witness), Hakeem (wise), etc. Other Divine names may not be given to human
beings because they are befitting only for Allaah, such as al-Baari (the Creator),
al-Raaziq (the Provider), al-Muhyi (the Giver of Life), al-Awwal (the First), al-Aakhir
(the Last), etc.
If your name is of the first type, then there is nothing wrong with it. If it is of the
second type, then putting the word "Abd" (slave of) in front of the name will solve the
problem. May Allaah help us to adhere to the truth.
And Allaah knows best.
