As salaam wu alaikum mufti saaheb.

I have a friend who is interested in becoming a muslim, however he has heard from certain individuals that once he is a muslim he must change his name.

Please advise if the Sharia requires a new muslim to change their names upon reverting back to the faith.

It is  best to change the name also. It is a very small sacrifice especially when the person is changing ones whole faith.
