Sayyiduna Jubair b. Mu’tim radi Allahu Anhu reported on the authority of his father that he heard Allah’s Messenger ﷺ as saying: I have many names: I am Muhammad, I am Ahmad, I am al-Mahi through whom Allah obliterates unbelief, and I am Hashir (the gatherer) at whose feet people will be gathered, and I am ‘Aqib (after whom there would be none), and Allah has named him as compassionate and merciful. Sahih Muslim 5811.
Sayyiduna Abu Musa Ash’ari radi Allahu Anhu reported that Allah’s Messenger ﷺ mentioned many names of his and said: I am Muhammad, Ahmad. Muqaffi (the last in succession), Hashir, the Prophet of repentance(Nabi at Tawbah), and the Prophet of Mercy(Nabi ar Rahman). Sahih Muslim 5813.
Imam Suyuti qs from two different chains of Hadith coming from Sayyiduna Abdullah ibn Masood and Sayyiduna Hudhayfa mention two other names of prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallim that he told us “Nabi al Malahim(prophet of great battles) and Al Khatm(the Sealer)”. While reading Surah As Saff tafseer I noticed each mufassir Imam Suyuti, imam Qurtubi and imam ibn katheer qs all mention some of these beautiful names of the prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallim while writing tafseer of Surah As Saff. The more I read the more I feel I’m sitting in a mawlid celebration. SubhanAllah Allah is praising our Messenger Mustafa Sallallahu alaihi wasallim. May Allah keep our heart illuminated with love of prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallim, his Ahlul Bayt and his Sahabah Ameen.
