Question

Assalamu Alaikum Is it permissable for a
person to have the name "Azeez Razak"?
Since These are both Names of Allah , is it
Obligatory to Have "Abdul" Before them? If
so , Should it be , "Abdul Azeez Razak" or
"Abdul Azeez Abdul Razak"? Which one is
correct? Would it be a sin to have a name
with the words "Azeez Razak" and no "Abdul"
in it? Please Answer. Thank you. Assalamu
Alaikum

Fatwa:
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.

Yes, it is permissible to be named with ''
'Azeez '' as it is one of the names that can be
commonly used to both name people and as
an Attribute of Allah. Allah Says (what
means): { Truly, Allah is 'Azeez (i.e. All-
Mighty), All-Wise. } [Quran 2:220]. Allah
further Says about the brothers of Yoosuf,
may Allah exalt his mention, (what means):
{They said: "O 'Azeez (i.e. ruler of the land)!
Verily, he has an old father (who will grieve
for him); so take one of us in his place.
Indeed we think that you are one of the
good-doers. } [Quran 12:78].
As regards the name Ar-Razaaq (which means
the provider), then some scholars
considered it among the names which are
specific to Allah, therefore, it is not
permissible to be named with this name, and
whoever has this name should change it to
another name like Abdur-Razaaq , for
instance.

Finally, it should be noted that a son is not
obliged to change his family name even if
this name has a meaning which is
contradictory to religion.

Allah knows best.
