Feed [TROID] Benefit: Desiring a Kunyah

In the Name of All?h, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Im?m al-Bukh?r? mentioned in his ?a???: Chapter of Kunyahs for Women:

On the authority of ??isha? (ra?? All?hu ?anh?) who said: “O Prophet of All?h, will you not give me a kunyah?” The Messenger of All?h (?alla? All?hu ?alayhi wa-sallam) replied: “Take the kunyah of your son (?Abdull?h ibn Zubayr)”. So she was given the kunyah: Umm ?Abdill?h (al-?Adab al-Mufrad, pg. 851).

Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhal? (ra?imahull?h) notes: In this ?ad?th, we find the permissibility of desiring and requesting a kunyah by those who have children and those who do not. This is due to the honour of possessing a kunyah.
