What is the ruling on using the name Pervais?
Verily the praises are to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be
upon prophet Muhammed.
Names that are forbidden are names that are exclusively names of Allah,
like “Rahman”, names that denote hostility like “harb” which means war,
and names that would express a bad trait like “jahl” which means ignorant.
If the name doesn’t fall into one of these categories, it would be allowed.
A person should stay on the name given to them by their parents.
And Allah knows. Shaikh Sajid.
