Assalamualaikaum , Is it necessary to use "Abdul " with the names of Allah. For example, Abdur Rahman, Abdul Basit .. Or we can just name and call a person as Rahman or Basit as well ?


This is an official answer by Staff

Abdul is only necessary with a few special names of Allah, with the rest of the names of Allah you don't have to use Abdul provided that you remove the "al-" from the name, thus you can use Salam (peace) but not al-Salam (The Peace).
