Will We Be Called with the Names of Our Mothers on Doomsday?
  • Question:

    On the day of Judgement will we be called with the names of our mothers?

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Please note that the following sound hadith shows that, on the day of resurrection, people will be called with their own names and with the names of their fathers:

    The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) stated, “You will all be called on the day of judgement by your names and your fathers names, so therefore keep good names for your selves” (Abu Dawood, Musnad Ahmed, Al Dar Qutnee)

    The alleged narrations that seem to indicate names of mothers are fabricated. (See Al Kabeer of Imam Tabraani, Mowdhuaat of Imam Ibn Al Jawzee)

    Shaykh al Hadith Muhammad Yunus Jownpuri has also discussed this, affirming of the above, in his recent work "Al Yawaaqeet Al Ghaaliyah Fee Tahqeeq Wa Takhreej Al Ahaadith Al Aaliyah"

    And Allah knows best.
