But I like name "Muhammad" and all the time I call him Muhammad. Please guide me is it compulsory to decide name Abdul Hadi instead of Muhammad Hadi?

    If you want to keep the word Hadi in the name of your son then you should prefix it with Abd and keep the name Abdul Hadi or Muhammad al-Hadi. You can call your son by the name Muhammad as well.
