    i was just reading a “history of islam”
    in that in found that back in days ignorance
    people used to worship idols
    during that time one of the famous idol name was shariq
    i think mufti/alim should guide us
    whether keeping shariq name is permissible or not.

    Apparently it also means companion, friend and partner and someone who is a humanitarian and generous individual. And my name is Shariq but I’d be quite disgusted if I was named after a false idol. But, it’s literally said in the Qur’an meaning the sun that rises from the east and Sharika meaning partner.
