Q 2: What is the opinion of Shari`ah (Law) regarding
giving someone the name of `Abd-ul-Nasir, `Abd-ul-Ilah, `Abd-ul-Muhsin and `Abd-ul-`Atty
from your own point of view?
Al-Muhsin (The Ever Benevolent) and Al-Ilah (God) are names of Allah (Glorified) whereas Al-Nasir (the defender) and Al-`Atty (the giver) are not Names of Allah (Exalted be He). So, it is not permissible to refer servitude to these last two names (by placing the prefix `Abd, i.e. slave, before them).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
