What name to call husband wife

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 none 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: prophet,what (name) he can call her wifes. His wifes, what (name) she can call to his(prophet)

It is a part of the Arab culture and etiquette, and it is considered a sign of honor and respect to address one another by the name of their eldest male child. The Messenger of Allah (saws) was known and addressed even by his enemies amongst the Quraish as Abul-Qasim (the father of Qasim).but the believers, including his noble and chaste wives would almost always refer to him as the Messenger of Allah (saws).


In light of the various records in the authentic and established Sunnah, more often than not the Messenger of Allah (saws) would normally refer and address his wives by their maiden names.


There is absolutely no harm, nor restriction, nor is it discouraged in Islam for a wife to call her husband by his maiden name, or for the husband to address their wives by their maiden name.


There is absolutely no restriction or prohibition in Islam if one wishes to call or address their spouse by their maiden names, or as may be prevalent in the land or the culture they live in to add a prefix or suffix to their names as a sign of respect and honor.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 49 Surah Hujuraat verse 11:

11 O ye who believe! Let not some men among you laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): Nor let some women laugh at others: it may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames: Ill-seeming is a name connoting wickedness (to be used of one) after he has believed: And those who do not desist are (indeed) doing wrong.


What is specifically and categorically prohibited in Islam is that one call or address another by an offensive or derogatory nickname, or a name which is detested by the one who is being addressed.


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,
