What do the experts and scholars of Shari’ah say about naming a stillborn child? Is this wajib (necessary)?
It is not necessary to name a stillborn child rather it will be considered mustahab. Imam Nawawi mentions in Al-Majmu’a Sharh Al-Muhadhab that if a child passes away before it is named then it is mustahab (desirable) to name the child.
And Allah ﷻ knows the best
