NEW FATAWA: Is it permissible for a person to call themselves or their child al-azeez (the mighty)?

Q.​The individual is asking is it permissible for a person to call themselves or their child al-azeez (the mighty)?

A.​The shaykh said this is that which a person should abstain from. It is that which a person should abstain from, as it is from the names of Allaah (azza wa ja’aal). However, if an individual is given the title of the azeez of Riyaadh or the azeez of Egypt, meaning the leader/king of Riyaadh or the leader/king of Egypt. This is a title so this is not a problem but this is not the name of the individual.

Shaykh Saalih Muhammad al-Luhaydaan (May Allaah preserve him) (Kitaab-ut-Tawheed Class 02.02.13 Riyadh).
