Is It Permissible to Name My Baby After an Angel?

Answered by Ustadh Salman Younas

Question: Assalam aleykum

Me and my wife have just had a baby boy, we were thinking about names and we wanted to name our child Eesa Ibrahim Khan. I just wanted to check if we can 2 prophets names together or if it was best just to go with Eesa Khan?

Answer: assalamu alaykum

There is no problem in joining the names of two prophets in the manner you have described.
