The meaning of Muhammad ﷺ
The great Imam Abdullāh Al Husāyni, said – who Shāykh Abd al Rāhman al –Shāghouri once called him “the Pole of Prophetic love of our times”
“There is no doubt that the causes of love spring from the beauty, perfection and benefit, as Imam al Ghāzali and others have put it. A man is loved for his generosity, or his bravery, or his forbearance, or his knowledge, or his humility, or his piety, or his asceticism and caution, or the perfection of his intellect, or his quickness of his understanding, or the beauty of his character and manners, of his eloquence, or his good company, or his righteousness, or his care and compassion, or for other attributes of the like.
What if these consummate attributes and others were gathered together in one man, and realized to their fullest and most complete extent?
This is our Beloved Master ﷺ in whom all attribute of beauty and perfection are gathered. Allāh has created his exalted image, his noble form, and has adorned him ﷺ with all forms of beauty and splendour, so that any who described him ﷺ would say: ‘I never saw before him or after him anyone like him ﷺ’
The meaning of the name Muhammad originates from the root word Hamd which means praise and the one who is Muhammad is the superlative form, the most praised one ﷺ
اللهم صلى على سيدنا ونبينا وحبيبنا محمد صلى الله عليه وآله وصحبه وسلم
