Giving Names to Animals




Is it permissible to name a pet cat Sultan?



In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

Yes, It is permissible to name your pet cat.
There are many Ahaadith to prove that the prophet Sallalahu Allayhi Wassallam had animals which had been named.[1]


And Allah Ta‘ala knows best

حدثنا عبد الله بن محمد ، حدثنا معاوية ، حدثنا أبو إسحاق عن حميد قال : سمعت أنسا ، رضي الله عنه ، يقول كانت ناقة النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم  يقال لها العضباء
