Names which belong only to Allh Subhnahu wa Tal1

Ibnul Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (Rahimahullh)

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

وَمِمَّا يمْنَع تَسْمِيَة الْإِنْسَان بِهِ أَسمَاء الرب تبَارك وَتَعَالَى فَلَا يجوز التَّسْمِيَة بالأحد والصمد وَلَا بالخالق وَلَا بالرازق وَكَذَلِكَ سَائِر الْأَسْمَاء المختصة بالرب تبَارك وَتَعَالَى وَلَا تجوز تَسْمِيَة الْمُلُوك بالقاهر وَالظَّاهِر كَمَا لَا يجوز تسميتهم بالجبار والمتكبر وَالْأول وَالْآخر وَالْبَاطِن وعلام الغيوب

The names of the Rabb Tabraka wa Tal are amongst the names prohibited to name a person with. So it is not permissible to name with الأحد al-Ahad (the One), الصمد as-Samad (the Eternal), الخالق al-Khliq (the Creator), and الرازق ar-Rziq (the Provider). The other names reserved for the Rabb Tabraka wa Tal are as such. It is also not permissible to name the kings with القاهر al-Qhir (the Irresistibly Supreme) nor الظَّاهِر adh-Dhhir (the Evident) just as it is not permissible to name them with الجبار al-Jabbr (the Compeller), المتكبر al-Mutakabbir (the Majestic), الْأول al-Awwal (the First), الْآخر al-khir (the Last), الْبَاطِن al-Btin (the Hidden) and علام الغيوب Allmul Ghuyb (the Knower of the Unseen).

Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah (Rahimahullh) stated,

والعالم يعرف الجاهل؛ لأنه كان جاهلا، والجاهل لا يعرف العالم لأنه لم يكن عالما

"The lim (scholar) recognizes the Jhil (ignorant) since he was once a Jhil. The Jhil does not recognize the lim since he has never been an lim." (Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majm'ul Fatw, 13/235)
