Asalaam Aliakum

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I am an IT blogger and like using technology. I know some people dislike technology I don't blame them.
It is something you get use and get a little addicted. I am not an addict, I just like using it for brain storming.

I hope some of you here agree with me when we all need help. I joined this forum for a little help with things and help others.

Also I have joined to make new friends and read about what is happening.

Insha allah

Abdul Razzaq is more suitable name than Razzaq, as you know it's the name of Allah :swt: so Razzaq isn't suitable for a slave of Al Razzaq.

It's only my suggestion, bro.

I totally agree with you. He cannot be Razzaq, but only Abdul Razzaq.

Thank you for the name suggestions of my name change. I am quite overwhelmed by this. I do not have in depth knowledge of meanings of names.

Once again thank you.

Assalamuakijum wr wb dear brother Razzaq.

Lol u have fallen straight into the name discussion :)

However let me tell you that our sunni scholars do hold the opinion too that Allah's names can be kept as a first name apart from the names Allah or Ar-Rahman:

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Among the ninety-nine beautiful Divine Names, neither Allah nor al-Rahman are permissible as surnames or first names for people; but Karim, Sabur, Shakur, Hamid, and others are permissible.

There is a slight difference between permissible and advisable. There are many things and acts which maybe permissible but not advisable.

Hmm your comment seems very wise sister, however if it's a valid opinion then this means we have a choice ('if it's a valid opinion amongst the same madhab) as we don't have ijtihad capability to judge between the two opinions, and Islam is in favour of making ease for people, so that's my reason for 'advisable' sister, may I ask what it your reason for 'not advisable'?

Dear Sister,

As I forgot to mention that Razzaq is not my first name. Due to people telling things about the meaning of my name, I was given the name I have by my parents. Parents choose not us and I am happy with that as it is enough for me.

Insha Allah

There is nothing wrong with your Name.

If you had named yourself al-Razzaaq (ar-Razzaaq) that would have been impermissible.

According to a group of scholars al-Maalik is the Name of Allaah. Yet, we have Imaam Maalik.

Nothing wrong with your name.

Allah's name Al-Maalik is for "Maalik ul Mulk", owner of everything. While the name like Imam Maalik Had or somebody may have, could mean maalik of a house or owner of some petty thing. Apart from this name Maalik, if you can please mention any from the companions of the Prophet (PBUH) or from the Tābi‘een (successors of the companions) or from Tabi' al-Tabi'in?

Nothing wrong with it on your part. Rather people make it wrong usually.

......and he will call upon people in a loud voice, "O my friends come to me! I am your lord who has made your limbs and given you sustenance."

there may be many maliks (kings), raheems (merciful people), ghanees (rich people), however there is only one razzaaq - this is due to the fact that Allah :swt: is the faatuir (originator) of rizq, and there is none other who can originate rizq, people can only re-distribute what Ar-razzaq gives, and shoud be careful to avoid dhulm (injustice).

There are others that are unsuitable too al ilah is one of Allah's names but you cannot name yourself ilah audhoo billah

Not sure about the name in question I'm not a scholar I'll leave it for someone more knowledgeable to answer

It's not the matter of right or wrong, but of suitable or unsuitable.

Suppose if you show mercy on someone and he says ''You are Raheem because You show mercy on people''.

Or

If you feed any hungry and he says, '' You are Razzaq because you feed the people''

Is calling you ''Razzaq'' suitable ?

You are right. It is best to avoid naming a person with the Names of Allaah. Even the Names in regards to which scholars have said that one can use, they say it is best to avoid because of ibhaam.

As for Razzaaq, it may well be from among the Names which one cannot use in any case as opposed to names such as Kariim. Even in such Names one has to be sure that one is not thinking of the Sifah of Allaah when calling the person with it. There is just too much ibhaam.

All in all, best to avoid the doubtful matters as per authentic hadiith.

Khaadim would fit the description better.

I recall a video where king fahd decided around 1980 to choose "khaadim al haramain ash-shareefain" over the previously preferred "malik al 'arabiyyah as-sa'udiyyah"
