Question # : 146701


My name is Abdul Kashif. Some people say that my name is wrong as we can use “Abdul” before a name only in case where the name is of Allah SWT. In other words, we cannot use “Abdul” before the name “Kashif”. Please let me know whether my name is correct or not?

The word ‘Kashif’ is not among the Asma-e-Husna (beautiful names of Allah); thus the name Abdul Kashif is not correct. If you keep the name Abdul Basit instead, it shall be better.
