Meaning of Muhammad

Muhammad is a direct Quranic name for boys that means “a person in which praiseworthy characteristics are abundant”, “a person who deserves constant praise due to their good traits”. It is the name of Islam’s Prophet (salalahu alaihi wa sallam). Before Islam, only seven people among the Arabs were known to have this name according to the Lisan al-Arab dictionary. After Islam it became one of the world’s most popular names, if not the most popular one. Muhammad is mentioned seven times in the Quran.

Muhammad is not but a messenger. [Other] messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels [to unbelief]? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all; but Allah will reward the grateful {3:144}
