Bearing the name `Rahmatullah'

Q 4: What do you say about compound nouns such as Rahmat-ul-lah, Rafiq-ul-Rahman, Gharm-ul-lah, `Ata-al-lah, Ghulam-ul-Rahman and the like?

A 4: There is nothing wrong with compound nouns such as `Abdullah, `Ata'-ul-lah and Rahmat-ul-lah. As for Rafiq-ul-Rahman, Gharm-ul-lah and Ghulam-ul-lah; it is better not to give someone these names because their meaning is doubtful.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
