My two law says that I've never met my biological father or mother, and I do not know my father's name. I was adopted at birth and given my adopted father's name, but he abandoned me. I reverted to Islam and changed my name. Is this permissible to do I have or I have to keep the name of my adopted father? Or take the name of my mother, which I have just found out? Or can I take my husband's name, as I have just got married?
This question is a bit complicated.
First of all, generally speaking, a person must not be called except after his father, and his forefathers. So what many Muslim women do due to the imitation of the disbelievers or of the non Muslim countries and traditions, when they get married, they change their name to their husband's name, this is totally prohibited and it has to be changed.
And it's awkward when people call for
feminism and when they call for the rights of women, yet they themselves are the first to change their God given names to their husbands names in Islam, we don't have this a woman keeps and
is called after her father and her grandfather and her family name never to be changed into anybody's names. This is the basics. Now, if a woman was born out of wedlock, so, her father did not marry her mother, she is not to be called after
her biological father, because there was no legitimate marriage, she would be called either after her mother's family
because this is the trend that the mother the child that was born out of wedlock is not to be called after the biological father but rather by the mother's family or in an an incident where a child does not know the father nor the mother.
In this case, he would be or she would be given a name that is general. So the first name we have no problem with whatever your first name is, this is okay. Now, the second and family name it should be general. So each and every slave of Allah is Abdullah. So if her name is Catherine, then surname would be Catherine, the daughter of Abdullah Catherine Abdullah, if she took a Muslim name, her name would be let's assume Zainab bint Abdullah Daughter of Abdullah or not, because this fits all humans, Muslims and non Muslims, they are all slaves of a law they are all slaves of a man and your case Amata law if your mother whom you had discovered recently acknowledges that she had a marriage
contract with your biological father you have to be called after him. If not, then you may be called after a general name like mentioned Avila etc, but not after your husband and I hope this yearning inshallah answers your question.
