I wanted to know the correct spelling, pronunciation and meaning of name mahad or mahd. I checked on many sites they given different meaning, spellings. Also please conform that it is Hazrat Muhammad name or not because on one site it mention that its not. Can I name my son Mahad Ahmed.


This is an official answer by Staff

The names Mahad and Mahd are not related to Muhammad. Many people write Mhd or something similar as a short version of Muhamad, but Mhd by itself is not a name, it is just an abbreviation.

Mahad and Mahd could be many different names from the M-H26-D Quranic root, please take a look at this page to see all of the relevant names: M-H26-D. Click on each name to see its information.

You can name your son Mahad Ahmad since both are good names.

    I named my on ” MAHAD “, It’s Prophet Muhammad’s name. You can in find it in the list of Prophet Muhammad’s names list given at the end of some Quran Pak or search on internet. Mahad means Hidayat Yafta. I found this name in the list of Prophet Muhammad’s names given at the end of one Quran Pak which I have at my home. It is confirmed and no doubt about it. You can name your child MAHAD without any hesitation.
