Is it correct that 'Al-Rashid' is one of the Names of Allah?
Is it correct that "Al-Rashid (The Righteous Teacher)" is one of the Names of Allah (Glorified be He)? What is the ruling on having the name of "`Abdul-Rashid (Servant of Al-Rashid)"?
Is it obligatory upon anyone who has this name to change it?
Al-Rashid is not one of the Names of Allah (Exalted be He) because it is not stated in the Qur'an and Sunnah. Accordingly, it is impermissible to say, (Part No. 10; Page No. 482) "`Abdul-Rashid". It is obligatory upon anyone who has this name to change it.
