Answer:

 

Girl marries Christian

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


 

Your Question: my husband used tobe a christian but he became a muslim alhamdulilah just before we got married he is called jamal but he still uses his christianity name eg passport work etc. is it wrong for him to still use his name?

If the Christian name of your husband does not constitute an evil meaning or connote shirk, there is absolutely no harm in him using his previous name. Most of the companions who reverted to Islam during the time of the Messenger of Allah (saws) kept their maiden names even after reversion, unless if their maiden names had an evil meaning or an element of shirk, the Messenger of Allah (saws) would assign them a new name.

 

Thus if the maiden name of your husband is good, there is absolutely no harm in him keeping or using that name. Allah Subhanah does not Judge a person by the name one keeps, but rather His Judgment is based on the persons belief, deeds, and the level of ones piety.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran: Chapter 49 Surah Hujurat verse 13:

O mankind, We created you from one man and one woman, and then divided you into nations and tribes so that you may recognize one another. Indeed, the most honorable among you in the Sight of Allah is he who is the most pious of you. Surely Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.

Dear and beloved sister, from what you have related of your past, it is only natural that a father (and mother) who cherished and sacrificed so much for their child all their lives, would feel immense pain if that child grew up to disregard their opinion when she was about to make one of the most important decisions of her life! If you could only put yourself in your parents shoes and imagine their helplessness and their condition at whatever transpired in the past, perhaps you would be able to comprehend their pain and dismay.

 

First and foremost you and your husband need to turn back to your Lord Creator and seek His forgiveness for your past deeds; and considering the immense pain you might have caused your parents, regardless of their behavior towards you, you should at all times humble yourselves to them, be extremely kind and patient with them, and remain constant in your abject service to them in all matters henceforth. And above all remain constant in your supplications to your Lord Creator to soften their hearts and bring them to forgive you for your past transgressions.

 

One can only realize the love and concern a parent has for their childrens well-being only when they have their own children! If you could only put yourselves in your parents shoes for one moment, you would realize how much your past actions have hurt them.and it is only with your character, behavior, tenderness, kindness, humility and wisdom that you can start the healing process of their broken hearts.

 

My dear and beloved sister, it may take a lifetime or it may take only a moment to heal the wounds of your parents hearts.thus, regardless of their behavior towards you, you must remember that it was your decisions and deeds that has caused this rift, and it is entirely upto you to start the healing process of your strained relationship with your parents.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

 

Burhan
