Calling Isa Jesus
Fatwa No: 84859


Will it be right to call Isa (peace be upon him) Jesus?


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the World; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

As for the word "Jesus", it means 'Isa in Arabic. Thus, there is no objection to use it in any situation unless it comes while one is reading the Qur'an, since it is not allowed to recite the Qur'an in any other language except Arabic.
If using the word "Jesus" or any other person as a way of seeking help, then this is completely Haram and constitutes Shirk. In addition, seeking help for what only Allah, The Exalted, can do is Haram.
Allah knows best.
