The Lebanese artist Dolly Shaheen filed documents in a family court in Alexandria, Egypt, declaring herself officially Muslim.

The documents will be used in her divorce case against her husband Lebanese businessman Sami Salim Qalib, who is a Maronite Christian.

Dolly said that when she married Sami she was still a Catholic, but now that she is a Muslim the marriage is forbidden.

Dolly tried to file for divorce several times, but Sami refused.

Dolly’s family and friends tried to intervene, but Dolly is determined to get divorced.

So many questions, has she really reverted, or is this an easier way to get a divorce from a reluctant husband. More importantly is she really called dolly Shocked


Wassalaam

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

"has she really reverted,"

You have no right to think that, and less right to say that.
It is none of your business whether she has really reverted, that is between herself and Allah.

As far as you are concerned she is a Muslim, unless proved otherwise.

And her name is her business too, don’t you people know about backbiting?
She isn’t a soldier killing Muslims, she isn’t deviant scholar making Hallal Harram and justifying kufr. She isn’t a ruler ruling by other then what Allah revealed. So there is no reason to attack her.
There is no backbiting against people who don't fear Allah, What is your evidence she doesn’t fear Allah?
She has just reverted, so it is understandable it might take her a while to learn the deen.


People who love kaffar and always make excuses for them are the same people who bash Muslims and never make excuses for them.

As salaam alaikum.

It is according to sunnah, to change a bad name immediately, and it is permissible according to sunnah to exchange a name for a better one.

Narrated 'Aisha:
The Prophet used to change a bad name. (Al-Tirmidhi #4774)

Narrated Abu Huraira:
Zainab's original name was "Barrah," but it was said, "By that she is giving herself the prestige of piety." So the Prophet changed her name to Zainab. (Sahih Al-Bukhari 8.212)

If something is not classified as haram within our deen, then it is permitted. Retaining a name that does not identify itself with anything Islamically forbidden and is not a Name of Allah (swt), has not been declared haram. So the question then is the name 'Dolly' haram?

Dolly is a pet form of the english name Dorothy. A common Christian name after the life of Saint Dorothy of Caesarea (http://saints.sqpn.com/ncd02823.htm). As the patroness of brewers and strongly Roman Catholic in logos and meaning I question whether the name is lawful.

It is reported that the Prophet (saws) said: "On the Day of Resurrection, you will be called by your names and by your fathers' names, so give yourselves good names." (Hadith Abu Dawud)

Allah (swt) knows best.

Ma'as salaama,

And how does that justify you making fun of her name?

We are talking about a new convert here.
Let’s leave it to the Kaffir to question her motivation for leaving the trinity and make fun of her. We should be welcoming her in to the true deen and congratulating her for dumping a false one.

I shouldn’t really be responding to you, just fear Allah. That’s all I can be bothered to say to you at this point.
Because "lol... Dolly is really quite a name isn't it!" isn't "I think the sister should change her name".

Is she famous for something? A singer/model/actress, why'd this even make the news at all, I wouldnt have thought it terribly unusual?
