Question

How sound is the hadeeth, “The
best names are those which
describe one as a slave of Allaah or
which are derived from the name
Muhammad”?.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.
This hadeeth is not saheeh and it
has no basis.
It says in Kashf al-Khafa (1/468):
“The best names are those which
describe one as a slave of Allaah or
which are derived from the name
Muhammad”. Al-Najm said: This is
not known. It was also narrated
with the wording, “The most
beloved of names to Allaah are
those which describe one as a slave
of Allaah or which are derived from
the name Muhammad”, al-Suyooti
said: I could not find any source for
this hadeeth. End quote.
It says in al-Maqaasid al-Hasanah
(p. 87): As for what is frequently
said, “The best names are those
which are derived from the name
Muhammad or which describe one
as a slave of Allaah”, I do not know
it. End quote.
Al-Albaani (may Allaah have mercy
on him) said: “The best names are
those which describe one as a slave
of Allaah or which are derived from
the name Muhammad” – there is no
basis for this, as has clearly been
stated by al-Suyooti and others. End
quote from al-Silsilah al-Da’eefah,
1/595, no. 411

There is a saheeh hadeeth about
the virtue of being a slave of Allaah
and giving the names ‘Abd-Allaah
and ‘Abd al-Rahmaan. Muslim (2132)
narrated that Ibn ‘Umar said: The
Messenger of Allaah (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him)
said: “The most beloved of your
names to Allaah are ‘Abd-Allaah and
‘Abd al-Rahmaan.”
And Allaah knows best.
