Bridegroom Changing Surname

Q: Is it possible that at the time of nikaah (marriage) the surname of a bridegroom changes?

A: Usually after Nikah the girl adopts the surname of the husband. The surname of the bridegroom does not change. In fact it will not be permissible for the bridegroom to change his surname if he has a legitimate father. He must maintain his father’s name.
