Keeping the Prophet (SAW)’s Name (Hadith No. 110)


Hadith no. 107, 108, 109 are repeated. Read it here.

In Pakistan, every other boy’s name starts with Muhammad. If one’s name is Jamal, for example, he’ll be called ‘Muhammad Jamal’. :)
But in some countries, keeping this name isn’t appreciated. These people think it’s dis-respectable to the Prophet (SAW). No one should be named after him.
Who’s right and who’s wrong? Let’s see what the Prophet (SAW) said about it himself..

Volume 1, Book 3, Number 110:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet said, “Name yourselves with my name (use my name) but do not name yourselves with my Kunya name (i.e. Abu-l Qasim). And whoever sees me in a dream then surely he has seen me for Satan cannot impersonate me. And whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally), then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.”

So you may keep his name. But using his kunya name (Abul Qasim) isn’t allowed.

And if you see the Prophet (SAW) in your dream, you see the real him. So go on trying to dream about him! ;)
