The Name Muhammad & Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عايه وسالم



صلى الله عايه وسالم

Prophet, Muhammad

The Holy Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عايه وسالم

 was born during the first year of Aam Al Feel [the year of the Elephant's War] on 12th Rabee-ul-Awwal; 21st April, 571 A.D, during early morning; before the sunrise.

Aqeeqah ceremony as thanksgiving to Allaah Almighty took place on the 7th day. All the Quraiesh community was invited to the feast. When people asked, What is the name of the child?.. his grandfather Hazrat Abdul Muttalib answered "Muhammad".

The Name ‘Muhammad’ – means a person praised again and again.

He was asked as to why the child has been assigned this unique type of name in deviation of customary names? The reply was

"My child should deserve appreciation and Praise of the Entire World"

And Muhammad صلى الله عايه وسالم means the most ‘Praiseworthy’

The Blessed Name Ahmad – the person who praises Allaah more than everyone.

His praise will continue till infinity, for neither will stop the tongues, nor will stop the pens, nor will finish the treasuries of the meanings and the interpretations.
