Calling Surah Al-Isra’ by the name of Surah Bani Israel

Q: Someone found in a Masjid (mosque) a Mus-haf (copy of the Qur'an) in which Surah Al-Isra’ is called by a name other than its known name. It is called Surah Bani (the Children of) Israel. He is asking about the validity of this name.


A: Calling Surah Al-Isra’ by Surah Bani Israel is valid and scholars approved of it.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
