Naming a Boy Muhammad Irhaam
Fatwa No: 417658

Question

I suggest a Name for My newly Born Baby boy,
Muhammad ارحام
Is this Name is good, Please Guide

Answer

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  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

There is no harm in giving your new-born boy the name you mentioned in the question, although it is better not to give him a compound name, but rather a name such as Muhammad, Ahmad, Abdullah, or Abdur-Rahmaan.

For more benefit on good names, please refer to Fatwa 87262.

Allah Knows best.
