Question

Is it permissible to call charitable projects, hospitals, Quran schools and so on by the names of prominent Muslims, such as the Sahaabah, Taabi’een and those who came after them such as guided imams and leaders of jihad, or not?.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

There is nothing wrong with calling charitable projects, hospitals, Quran schools and so on by the names of prominent Muslims, such as the Sahaabah, Taabi’een and those who came after them such as guided imams and leaders of jihad. This calling is not a kind of innovation in any way; rather it is something that is permissible. 

And Allah is the source of strength. May Allah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and Companions.
