Q 2: Is it permissible to
give someone the name of `Abd-ul-Nur?
Allah's (Exalted be He) Names are Tawqifiyyah (bound by a religious text and not amenable to personal opinion). It has not been reported that (Al-Nur) is a Name of Allah and consequently it is unallowable to refer servitude to it ((by using the prefix `Abd, i.e. a servant, before it). So, it is not permissible to say: (`Abd-ul-Nur).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
