The following question was posed:There is a company named "`Aziz for Contracting and Trade". We would like Your Excellence to advise us whether the name of the company is one of the Names of Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) or not. We hope Your Eminence will give us an answer to carry out the necessary procedures. With best regards.

After studying the question, the Committee answered:There is no objection to this name, because the word "`Aziz" is not exclusive (Part No. 2; Page No. 347) to Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
