Fatwa No: 91594

Question

Is the following narration authentic: “If you name a child Muhammad, do not beat him and do not deprive him”?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.

 

The narration you inquired about in reported by Al-Bazzaar may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him and narrated by Abu Raafi’  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him. Al-Haythami may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said: 'It is narrated by Al-Bazzaar, from his Shaykh Ghassaan Ibn ‘Abeed, and it is classified as authentic by Ibn Hibbaan and others, may Allaah have mercy on all of them, but the chain of narrators is weak. Moreover, Shaykh Al-Albaani may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him classified it as weak

Allaah Knows best.
