    Title: Change in Name

    Question: I have a son and he is one year old. My husband has kept his name Humzah, even I like the name. But a few of my relatives often comment me that Humzah means "Jalali." And they say to me that your son will become very angry and Jalali and he will be out of your control. Should I change his name?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1541/1541/M=1433) Hamza is very blessed and nice name, it means ‘lion’. It is the name of Companion of the holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم). Also Hamza was the uncle of the holy Prophet (صلى الله عيله وسلم). So you need not change this name.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
