What is the Sharai call for keeping a nickname (substitute, not short name)?

What is the call for nickname which is not bad, meaningless and not hurting anyone?nnAnswer:nnThe prohibition is not about the use of nicknames in general, but specifically about bad names which hurt people’s feelings.nnThe best man after the Most Beloved Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam was called “Abu Bakr”nnThe popular Sahaba was called “Abu Huraira”nnSayyiduna Uthmaan Bin Affaan, the 3rd Khaleefah was called “Zun-noorain”.nnThe owner of 2 lights (he married two of the Beloved Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallams daughters.)nnSo these are names called out with respect. They are not meant to insult or slander anyone.nnSo a nickname called out to insult someone or exposing a fault or defect is different.nnAnd Allah knows best.nn??????????????nKhalifa-E-Huzoor TajushshariahnMufti Maqsood Akhtar Qadri Razvi Amjadi nKhadim Dar al-Ifta Ridawi Amjadin??????????????
