Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan elaborates in this beautiful lecture about the name of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.
No creation of Allah thanks Allah more than Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. He was given a way to praise Allah like no one before. Muhammad means the one who is appreciated and thanked continuously.
The name Muhammad is mentioned 5 times in the Holy Qur’an. But how is the Prophet ﷺ addressed in the Qur’an? The name of the Prophet ﷺ is always succeeded by the word – Rasool.
Allah has declared Muhammad ﷺ not only as the Messenger of Allah but also as the Messenger of character to the Muslim Ummah. No one can belittle the status of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and it is incumbent upon us to follow his teachings even when an Ayah of the Qur’an is not being recited.
