Naming a child ‘Rasulullah’


What do the illuminated scholars of Islam say regarding naming a child Rasulullah, is this permissible or not? Please guide us through the great Shariah.


Using the beautiful name Rasulullah is impermissible and incorrect. Keeping such a name can cause doubts in fundamental matters of the religion.  Matters which are essential such as the firm belief that the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is the final Messenger of Allah ﷻ.

And Allah knows best.
