To name one’s child “Arsh” or “Arshiya”?


Assalamu alaykum
Is it ok to name a boy “ARSH” and girl “ARSHIYA”? people say you can not name this kind of names coz meaning of these names are very high and gets directly compared to allah’s throne. and if we can name it ARSH can we add MOHAMMAD to it. Example: is it ok to name MOHAMMAD ARSH to a boy since i dont know if you can add Mohammad or not.

It is mentioned in Hadith that,
“The most beloved names to Allah is ‘Abdullah’ & ‘Abdur Rahman’.”
(Abu Dawood, Muslim, Ibn Majah)

It is better to keep the names of Prophet عليه السلام, Sahaba رضي الله عنه‎‎ & Pious people.

To name one’s child “Arsh” or “Arshiya” is not correct.
(Fatawa Darululoom Deoband)
