I just had a question relating to naming your children. I have read your question regarding that but, is it ok if we name our children after angels? For Example: Jibrael?
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I have been reading questions and answers provided by you for a long time and May Allah give you great Ajar for your work, Inshallah.
I would really appreciate your answer and your efforts.

Name children after Angel
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: is it ok if we name our children after angels? For Example: Jibrael?
The Angels are no more than obedient slaves of the Lord Most Gracious, and there is absolutely no harm or restriction in Islam if one name their children after the name of one of the noble Angels of the Lord Most Merciful, if one wishes to do so.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
