Hadith on Names: Allah forbids insulting by hateful nicknames

Abu Jabirah ibn al-Dahhak reported: A man used to have two or three names by which he was called. Perhaps he hated one of them, so Allah revealed the verse, “Do not insult each other with offensive nicknames.” (49:11)

عَنْ أَبِي جَبِيرَةَ بْنِ الضَّحَّاكِ قَالَ كَانَ الرَّجُلُ مِنَّا يَكُونَ لَهُ الِاسْمَانِ وَالثَّلَاثَةُ فَيُدْعَى بِبَعْضِهَا فَعَسَى أَنْ يَكْرَهَ قَالَ فَنَزَلَتْ هَذِهِ الْآيَةَ وَلَا تَنَابَزُوا بِالْأَلْقَابِ
