Name of Angels is Makruh?


Salam wa aleykum

Have the name of angels is Makruh? As a brother showed me this hadith, but some people say it is weak:

“Do not name yourselves with the names of the Angels.”, Al-Bukhari said that the validity of its chain of narration is questionable. This means that the hadith would not be considered authentic. (Tuhfatul-Mawdud, p. 83)

Therefore, it is advisable or not the name of angels?

Allah Razi Olsun


`Alaykum salam,
It is makruh in Maliki madhhab but majority of scholars consider it permitted. Mawlana does not disapprove. I asked Mawlana in Peckham Mosque 20 years ago if I should change my name (Gibril) and he said: “There is Mika’il if you like!” So I kept it.
