Bearing the name `Abd Al-Shahid

Q: Is it permissible to name someone `Abdul Shahid (i.e., Servant of The Ever-Witnessing) or not?

A: It is permissible to name someone `Abdul-Shahid and there is no harm in that. Allah (Exalted be He) is described as and has the name of Al-Shahid (The Ever-Witnessing) in many of the Qur'anic Ayahs (Verses). (Part No. 11; Page No. 472) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
