In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The name “Ajrul” has an incomplete meaning.

“Ajrullah” means reward from Allah.[1] 

We advise you to keep the name Mohamed Ajrullah.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

أجر: الأَجْرُ: الْجَزَاءُ عَلَى الْعَمَلِ، وَالْجَمْعُ أُجور. والإِجارَة: مِنْ أَجَر يَأْجِرُ، وَهُوَ مَا أَعطيت مِنْ أَجْر فِي عَمَلٍ.

والأَجْر: الثَّوَابُ؛ وَقَدْ أَجَرَه اللَّهُ يأْجُرُه ويأْجِرُه أَجْراً وآجَرَه اللَّهُ إِيجاراً.
