Question: I have a question regarding Muslims changing their entire name after coming into the faith of Islam. Islam does not consider it an obligation for any new convert to Islam whose mother tongue is not Arabic to change it to an Arabic name or other language. Assallamu Alaikum, I became Muslim in June 2011, and just wanted to know that even if it is not mandated to change your name, can you do this as a symbol of such a total life change? As a convert of 10+ years myself, I can tell you that part of the conversion process is the eventually recognition that you are the same person that you were before and that Islam is a natural part of life.
When I converted to Islam, I did not embrace Arabism, neither did I reject my parents, close friends nor the teachers and other adults in the community who helped raise me and make me who I am.
The Lamppost Education Initiative (LEI) offers expert analysis of current events which impact Muslims in the West as well as offerings in the classical Islamic disciplines in written, published, and audio-visual formats.
Today an update arrived for one of the biggest and most successful mobile games for Android and iOS, Clash of Clans, and along with tons of new features it finally delivered something users have been asking about for over two years. Before today users had to email the customer support line at Supercell and hope they received a reply, then have a valid reason to change their in-game name, a process that often times took a long time only to end in you getting rejected by the game developers.
The update that arrived this morning delivers a new Air Sweeper defensive unit that essentially blows air and slows down air attacks, likely all those people that attack with all balloons or minions. Air attacks are a little unfair and unbalanced lately, and that will be somewhat improved with this new unit. As the update states, you’ll only be able to change your name in Clash of Clans once, and this only becomes an option once your Town Hall reaches level 5. While on the regular home area looking at your base, tap the 3-gears shaped button near the bottom right of the screen. A box will popup instructing you to input and change your in-game name, and again, this warns you that you can only change your name once. If Supercell is gonna make update of clan name change it should available for the current leader not the clan founder nor the co leaders.


Even those that are second, third generation Muslims when their parents became Muslim they changed their last names. Rather, it is only highly recommended for one to do so when the meaning of one’s name is something offensive or overly presumptuous in sound, like one indicating that one is pure or the like. Rather, their last names were connected to tribal affiliations or titles attaching them to certain tribal or regional sectors, like Qurashi, Khazraji, Makki, etc.
I feel as though I want to share with everyone what for me is the most wonderful thing that happened to me. But I do think that there is something to converts adopting new identities as a way of breaking with our past. African-Americans, we have our own issues with names, but until we can be recognized as legitimate Muslims with names like Keith, Crystal and Michael, Islam is always going to be viewed as a foreign religion. So with all due respect, I generally advise new converts not to change their names unless they fall within the above clarifications Ustadh Abdullah gave in the original answer.
Our commitment is to establishing an authoritative voice for American Muslim scholarship reflective of the historical tradition and contextualizes Islam in light of the challenges and cultural particularities of Western societies as was the case in all societies where Islam spread historically. You can now easily change your name or nickname (only once) in Clash of Clans, and below we’ll explain how.
And while this is aimed at balancing gameplay, improving features, tweaking multiplayer and clan wars, it also brought a feature or option that’s been sorely needed since the game launched more than two years ago.
On first play it warns you that you cannot change your name, yet users make arguably dumb names and regret it later once they’re fully addicted to Clash of Clans, my clan-mates included. This has been a huge complaint on forums for months on end, and here’s how to finally change it. You’ve now successfully changed your name in Clash of Clans, the one and only time you can do it. Meaning you’ll want to use the brand new in-game one time only name change feature, and choose wisely because it could be your only chance.


To understand what I am saying is if a clan is 3 years old and in the first year the founder of clan steps down then he cannot change the clan name.
I understood that to change your first name is okay, but to change your last name is not permissible. During the Prophet Muhammad’s (saws) time, he changed the names of a number of women whose names were too pious sounding, like the name Barra (ultra-pious). This, I think stems from a number of things, but something that I suspect is unique to the contemporary Western mindset. It’s worth noting that you can still probably hit the help and support tab, contact us, and email the developer and request a name change. I have two children whom now carry my last name now, and I am bothered that I may have made a mistake in giving them my last name. I believe that we assume that there is something anit-Islamic about our past, when that simply is not the case. The Companions, as Ustadh Abullah said, only changed their names when they implied something pretentious or idolatrous. If it takes a moment to change, this is server-side, and the changes should be reflected soon, if not immediately. This same trend can be detected in the European and other traditions (although I plan to exhaust more research on the matter) such that last names that are familiar today originate in some sort of occupation, tribal affiliation, or regional ascription.
So, in the end, you have not done anything inappropriate by giving your children your last name unless they are not biologically yours.
