Muhammad | the praised one

Muhammad Mohammad Calligraphy
The name, Muhammad means the praised one. The term also appears in Hebrew Bible. In the Song of Solomon (5:16) it reads: "Yea, he is altogether lovely" in English translation which in original Hebrew Bible, the word is "Muhammad-im".

The image of Islam's Prophet among Muslims originates from explicit Qur'anic proclamations, such as, blessed (33:56), mercy towards all creations (21:107), emancipator of humanity (7:157), etc. According to Ibn Durayd's (837CE-933CE) Kitab al Ishtiqaq, Muhammad means one who is continuously praised. Muhammad's other name Ahmed (61:6) has similar meaning. And the Qur'an declares Muhammad to be raised to the station of praise and glory, that is, “Maqamam Mahmood” (17:79). Still Muhammad is human (17:94) of the noblest moral character (68:4).

Muhammad also became widely known in Europe by diverse forms of the name such as Mahon, Mahomés, Mahun, Mahum, and Mahumet (all French), Machmet (German), and Maúmet (Old Icelandic).

Muhammad's “sacred names,” which Muslims believe were given to him by God and by which he is called in various contexts. Traditionally, 99 names for him are commonly used in litanies and prayers. Among the most often used and also central to the understanding of his nature is Ahmad (“the Most Glorified”), which is considered an inner and celestial name for Muhammad. Over the centuries Muslim authorities and scholars have believed that, when Christ spoke of the coming reign of the Paraclete, he was referring to Ahmad.
