According to customs of some countries, the wife is called by the name or Laqab (title of honor) of her husband after marriage. For instance, when a woman called Zaynab, marries a man called Zayd, is she permitted to write her name added to the name of her husband, i.e., Zaynab Zayd?
Does this pertain to customs of the Western civilization that we should avoid?
A Muslim is not permitted to be attributed to anyone other than their father. Allah (Exalted be He) says,
Call them (adopted sons) by (the names of) their fathers: that is more just with Allâh.
Islam threatens the person who attributes himself to someone other than his father severely. Thus, it is not permissible for the wife to be attributed to her husband as is commonly done by the disbelievers or Muslims who imitate them. (Part No. 20; Page No. 379) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
