Hauwa Indimi-Yar’Adua, daughter of Maiduguri oil mogul, Mohammed Indimi, has justified her choice to give her baby the name Noah rather than “Nuh”.

Taking to her Instagram story to reply to those who still attack her for her decision three years after, Hauwa said she doesn’t care what people think about what she calls her child.

She shared a post that many people have sent her to justify why the name was wrong for a Muslim and highlighted her thoughts on the issue.

She wrote;

“Tell me why a few people has sent this to me
Check all your other online sources and see if any other scholars have said it’s prohibited.
Does your controversial sheikh know that Noah is Hebrew and so is Yagub and many other names? Does he ignor the good intention behind naming a child after Allahs prophet? Is the language his problem? Then he should be preaching in only Arabic as well.
Do people really think we will name our child a name we haven’t done our research on? Does he actually think people want to blend with disbelievers?? Shocking.

“I do not care what you think about what I call my child. Your thoughts don’t change a thing because this religion is just not as complicated as you make it
I say Islam is not complicated because it literally says the exact names you are not allowed to call your child. It says the preferred names. It says Allah’s favourite names. Please take this time to look those up too so you know.”
she added.
