I want to know these names are OK and what are their meanings.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I want to know these names are OK and what are their meanings. Are the first and the last names compatible:
SHAZEB AHMED MURTAZA
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Meaning of names
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.
The term Shazeb or more accurately Shah-zeb is derived from the Farsi or Persian language; Shah meaning King, and Zeb meaning beautythus Shahzeb in effect meaning the King of beauty.
The Arabic term Ahmad literally means the one who constantly praises, and the Arabic term Murtaza (or more accurately Murtadha) means one who is chosen or liked.
All the above names have good meanings and are thus fine and acceptable in Islam; and there is absolutely no issue in Islam on the compatibility of good names, regardless of whether they are first or last names.
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,
