1) MANKIND WILL BE CALLED ON THE DAY OF RESURRECTION BY THEIR FATHERS’ NAMES. :-
Saheeh sunnah indicates that one should be called by his father name on day of judgement..There are many hadiths in authentic books of hadiths which confirmed it .. al-Bukhaari included a chapter entitled “ The people will be called by their father’s names”.
Narrated Ibn `Umar: Allah’s Messenger (p.bu.h) said, “A flag will be fixed on the Day of Resurrection for every betrayer, and it will be announced (publicly in front of everybody), ‘This is the betrayal (perfidy) so-and-so, the son of soand- so.”
SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 8, Book 73, Hadith 196)
SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 8, Book 73, Hadith 197)
Ibn ‘Umar reported the Apostle of Allaah(p.b.u.h) as saying “A banner will be hoisted for a treacherous man on the Day of Judgment, it will then be announced. This is a treachery of so and so, son of so and so.
ABU DAWOOD (Book 14, Hadith 2750)
Allah will set up a flag for every person guilty of breach of faith on the Day of Judgment, and it will be announced: Look, this is the perfidy of so and so.
SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 19, Hadith 4303)
Narrated AbudDarda’:The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said: On the Day of Resurrection you will be called by your names and by your father’s names, so give yourselves good names.
ABU DAWOOD (Book 42, Hadith 4930)
IMAM NAWAWI SAID :-
Isnad is Jayyid.
(ADHKAR 362,MAJMOO 8/436)
IBN AL QAYYIM SAID :-
Mankind will be called on the Day of Resurrection by their fathers’ names and not by their mothers’. This is the correct view which is indicated by the saheeh Sunnah and was stated by the imams such as al-Bukhaari and others. He said in his Saheeh: The people will be called on the Day of Resurrection by their fathers’ names and not by their mothers’. Then he quoted in this chapter the hadeeth of Ibn ‘Umar who said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “When Allaah gathers the first and the last on the Day of Resurrection, Allaah will raise for every betrayer a banner on the Day of Resurrection and it will be said: This is the betrayer of So and so the son of So and so.”
(TUHFAT AL-MAWDOOD BI AHKAAM AL-MAWLOOD CHAPTER 10 PAGE 147)
2) WEAK HADITH ABOUT ONE SHOULD BE CALLED BY MOTHER NAME ON DAY OF RESURRECTION. :-
Some people claimed that they will be called by their mothers’ names and they quoted as evidence for that a hadeeth which is not sound.
Narrated Abu Umaamah the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him):“When one of your brothers dies and you have levelled the dirt over his grave, let one of you stand at the head of his grave and say: O So and so son of So and so [his mother’s name], for he can hear him but cannot reply. Then let him say: O So and so son of So and so [his mother’s name], and he will say: Tell us, may Allaah have mercy on you.” And in this hadeeth it says that a man said: O Messenger of Allaah, what if his mother’s name is not known? He said: Then let him be attributed to his mother Hawwa’ (Eve), O So and so son of Hawwa’.”

3) THE MATTER OF CHILD WHOSE FATHER IS UNKNOWN ? :-
A man may not know for sure who his father is, such as one who is disowned in a case of li’aan or an illegitimate child, so how can he be called by his father’s name?
According to the consensus of scholars of hadeeth. As for the one whose his father is not known, he will be called as he was called in this world, so a person will be called in the Hereafter as he was called in this world, whether he was called by his father’s name or his mother’s. And Allaah knows best.
4) SOME MISINTERPRETATION OF SURAH AL-ISRA 17 VERSE 71. :-
“(And remember) the Day when We shall call together all human beings with their (respective) Imam [their Prophets, or their records of good and bad deeds, or their Holy Books like the Qur’aan, the Tawraat (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), or the leaders whom the people followed in this world]”
(SURAH AL-ISRA 17 VERSE 71)
AL-ZAMAKHSHARI SAID :-
One of the weird ideas mentioned in tafseer is the idea that the word “imam” is the plural of the word “umm” (mother) and that the people will be called on the Day of Resurrection by their mothers’ names, and that the reason why they will be called by their mothers’ names instead of their fathers’ is out of respect for the rights of ‘Eesa (peace be upon him) and to show the honourable descent of al-Hasan and al-Husayn on their mother’s side, and so that illegitimate children will not be embarrassed. How strange these notions are.
