Hadith on Muhammad: The beautiful names of the Prophet

Jubayr ibn Mut’im reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, I have many names: I am Muhammad, I am Ahmad, I am the eraser through whom Allah erases unbelief, I am the gatherer at whose feet the people will be gathered, and I am the last prophet after which there are none.

Jubayr said, “And Allah has named him as kind and merciful.”

عَنْ جُبَيْرِ بْنِ مُطْعِمٍ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إِنَّ لِي أَسْمَاءً أَنَا مُحَمَّدٌ وَأَنَا أَحْمَدُ وَأَنَا الْمَاحِي الَّذِي يَمْحُو اللَّهُ بِيَ الْكُفْرَ وَأَنَا الْحَاشِرُ الَّذِي يُحْشَرُ النَّاسُ عَلَى قَدَمَيَّ وَأَنَا الْعَاقِبُ الَّذِي لَيْسَ بَعْدَهُ أَحَدٌ

وقال جُبَيْر وَقَدْ سَمَّاهُ اللَّهُ رَءُوفًا رَحِيمًا
