It is said that on the Day of Judgement (Qyamat) every one will be called with his/her mother's name. Please tell is this true or false? Any Hadith regarding it?
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.
There is a weak Hadith that reads that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: Allah will call the people on the Day of Resurrection with their mothers' names to cover His slaves . Sheikh al-Albani graded it as fabricated Hadith in his book "Silsilah al-Daeefah". The truth is that people will be called by their fathers' names on the Day of Resurrection. Imam al-Bukhari entitled a chapter in His Sahih by this: 'calling people by their fathers' names', under this chapter he reported from Ibn Umar that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: For every betrayer, a flag will be raised on the Day of Resurrection, and it will be announced (publicly), this is the betrayer of so and so, the son of so and so . In short, people will be called by their names and their fathers' names not by their mothers' names. Allah knows best.
