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:

Assalamu Alaikum,

Can a wife call her husband by his name? Or is it Maqrooh to call her husband by name?

 

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

 

Answer:


 

Call Husband by name

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.

 

There is absolutely no harm, nor restriction, nor is it discouraged in Islam for a wife to call her husband by his maiden name, if she wishes to do so.

 

The prevalent culture of the Arabs at the time of the Prophet (saws), and even until today amongst the pure Arabs, one (regardless of whether husband or wife) is honorably called and recognized by his/her eldest sons name. For example, if ones eldest son name is Khalid, then the mother would be called Umm-Khalid (mother of Khalid) and the father Abu-Khalid (father of Khalid).

 

But if the wife wishes to call her husband by his maiden name, there is absolutely no harm nor is it discouraged in Islam.

 

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.

 

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
