Muslim Woman's Name After Marriage

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) Could you please let me know that why our Muslim woman's name changes after marriage i.e. her father's name is replaced by her husband's name? Is this permissible under our Sharia as I heard from someone that Qur'an says a person's name be called with her/his parents name.

In our country like India, woman's father name replaced with her husband's name after marriage but in Saudi Arabia it is not like that as they claim that it is according Islamic rites. [Mohd. Asif. KSA]


A.) It is neither necessary nor forbidden for a married Muslim female to assume her husband's surname.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
