AoA I've few questions for naming my newborn boy:

  1. I read on some islamic websites (eg Islamqa) that using uddin/al-din as suffix is disliked in Islam, eg nuruddin, as it's almost like lying. Can you provide more detail on this, from scholar's sources ? Because I've seen many people using this name, today as well as in the history.

  2. Is uddin and al-din same as in this context of dislike and meaning ?

  3. How is this as a name: Ahmad Isa bin Shuja ?


  • It would be helpful if you shared the statements and fatwas you are referring to. – Sassir Mar 26 at 1:12
