assalamu alaykum! mostly of the muslim
brothers here in southeast asia are used to
add the name Haji on their first name if they
finished a Hajj.Is this bidaah? or any dalil
from the hadith and quran in regards to this


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.
It is permissible to use the nickname “Hajji”
and call someone who performed Hajj with it
unless the person does so to show off. An-
Nawawi said: “They (the scholars)
agreed that it is desirable to use the name
that a person likes, for example Abu Bar As-
Siddeeq’s real name was ‘Abdullaah Ibn
‘Uthmaan and his nickname was ‘Ateeq, and
also Abu Turaab was the nickname of ‘Ali Ibn
Abu Taalib.”

Therefore, it is permissible to use a name if
the person likes to be called with it and
there is no religious prohibition in it.
Calling a person “Hajji” was not known
during the era of the Prophet ; however,
this does not prevent from using it as other
names and nicknames that were not used at
that time. This is not among the forbidden
innovations as it has no link with worship or
getting closer to Allah; rather, this is among
the customs and worldly affairs of the

Allah Knows best.
