My husband's muslim name only appear on his conversion card, marriage certificate and in the future, children birth certificates.
On children birth certificates (born in Malaysia), his surname will be used instead of bin or binti but religion of parents - Islam.
The religious department did advise him to change his name accordingly but we decided not to do it. Nevertheless, we do have to provide marriage certificate and/or his conversion card in dealing with issues like work permit, opening a joint bank account, set up a trust, etc.
