Naming the newborn after its father

A: It is permissible to name a boy after his father, whether he is Sarhan ibn Sarhan, `Abdullah ibn `Abdullah or any other name. There is no harm in this in shaa'-Allah (if Allah wills), whether the man whom he is named after is alive or dead.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
