In Qur’an

مَّا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَآ أَحَدٍۢ مِّن رِّجَالِكُمْ وَلَـٰكِن رَّسُولَ ٱللَّهِ وَخَاتَمَ ٱلنَّبِيِّـۧنَ ۗ وَكَانَ ٱللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَىْءٍ عَلِيمًۭا

MuHammad is not a father of any of your men, but he is a messenger of Allah and the last of the prophets. And Allah has the Knowledge of everything. (33:40)

In Hadith

حَدَّثَنِي إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ الْمُنْذِرِ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي مَعْنٌ، عَنْ مَالِكٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ شِهَابٍ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ جُبَيْرِ بْنِ مُطْعِمٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ لِي خَمْسَةُ أَسْمَاءٍ أَنَا مُحَمَّدٌ، وَأَحْمَدُ، وَأَنَا الْمَاحِي الَّذِي يَمْحُو اللَّهُ بِي الْكُفْرَ، وَأَنَا الْحَاشِرُ الَّذِي يُحْشَرُ النَّاسُ عَلَى قَدَمِي، وَأَنَا الْعَاقِبُ ‏”‏‏.‏

Narrated Jubair bin Mut`im: Allah’s Messenger () said, “I have five names: I am Muhammad and Ahmad; I am Al-Mahi through whom Allah will eliminate infidelity; I am Al-Hashir who will be the first to be resurrected, the people being resurrected thereafter; and I am also Al-`Aqib (i.e. There will be no prophet after me). (Sahih al-Bukhari)

Many names and titles have been given to the Prophet (ﷺ) in the Qur’an or Hadith. Each title reflects a unique quality of this exalted personality. We can understand them and reflect upon them to increase our love for the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) with the blessings of Allah.

Two types of Names of the Prophet (ﷺ) can be found:

1. These are the names that are unique to him, and no Messengers before him had such names as Muhammad, Ahmad, al–Hashir and al–Muqaffee (ﷺ).

2. These names and attributes are not unique to him and were shared by his Messengers before him. However, they are found in him in the most complete form. Like: Messenger of Allah (His Prophet), His Servant, Prophet of Mercy (ﷺ) etc.

The Qur’an uses the name Muhammad four times to refer to “Praiseworthy”. Muhammad is addressed in the Qur’an by the second person, not his name but the Appellations.

  • The nessenger (ٱلرَّسُولَ) (47:33)
  • The Servant (عَبْدِ) (2:23)
  • Bearer of good tidings (بَشِيرًۭا) (2:119)
  • Witness (شَـٰهِدًۭا) (33:45)
  • Bearer of good tidings (مُبَشِّرًۭا) (33:45)
  • Warner (نَذِيرًۭا) (2:119)
  • Preacher (مُذَكِّرٌۭ) (88:21)
  • One who calls unto Allah (داعي) (12:108)
  • Light (نُورٌۭ) (5:15)
  • A luminous lamp (سِرَاجًۭا مُّنِيرًۭا) (33:46)
