Question:
Can I name my child Khidr

Response:
Alhamdulillah, It is permissible for a Muslim to name his child khidr. Khidr is the name of the contemporary of Prophet Musa (AS). Most scholars believe he was a Prophet of Allah, though some others affirm he was an angel or otherwise. In line with the majority of Islamic scholars that he was a prophet, choosing names of the prophets (AS) is permissible in Islam, as demonstrated in the practice of our prophet- Muhammad- peace be upon him, when he named his son IBRAHIM- to take after Prophet Ibrahim- (AS)

Anas b. Malik reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: A child was born to me this night and I named him after the name of my father Ibrihim. (Muslim)

Allah knows best.

  1. Allah chased put shaytan from the Jannah as a result of not prostrating before prophet Adam.
    And again the shaytan whispered to Adam to eat the forbidden fruit..
    How come?
