The name Kabeer means big and exalted. This is one of the attributes of Allah. It is permissible to keep this name with the condition that one adds the word Abd with it making it Abdul-Kabeer, the slave of the Kabeer. We are advised by Rasoolullah that the best names are the ones which begin with Abd.
