Allah

Allāh (الله) is the proper name of God, and humble submission to His Will, Divine Ordinances and Commandments is the pivot of the faith. He is unique (Wāḥid) and inherently one (ʾAḥad), all-merciful and omnipotent.

Prophet

The Qur'an (القرآن) represents the words of Allāh revealed to Prophet Muhammad, arabic محمد (Peace be upon him) through the archangel Gabriel (جبريل).The Holy Prophet's message transformed the society and moral order of life in the Arabian Peninsula through reorientation of society as regards to identity, world view, and the hierarchy of values.

Asma un Nabi (اَلاسْمَاءُ النَب)
The Beautiful Names of Prophet Muhammad صَلَّى اللَّه عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ

Muhammad is not the father of [any] one of your men, but [he is] the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets. And ever is Allah, of all things, Knowing.

Surat Al-Ahzab 33:40

Narrated Jubair bin Mutim: Allah’s Apostle said, “I have five names: I am Muhammad and Ahmad; I am Al-Mahi through whom Allah will eliminate infidelity; I am Al-Hashir who will be the first to be resurrected, the people being resurrected thereafter; and I am also Al-Aqib (i.e. There will be no prophet after me).”

Sahih Al-Bukhari – Book 56 Hadith 732

The Prophet salallahu alaihi wasallam has been called by many names and titles in the Qur’an and Sunnah, each one of them describing a special quality of this exalted personality. In understanding them and reflecting upon them, we can, by the permission of Allah, increase in our love and following of the Messenger of Allah salallahu alaihi wasallam.
The names of the Prophet salallahu alaihi wasallam are of two types:

1.       Those names that are specific to him and none of the Messengers before him had these names, like Muhammad, Ahmad, al-Aaqib, al-Hashir, al-Muqaffee and Nabi al-Malhama.

2.       Those names and attributes that are not specific to him, and were shared by the Messengers before him, but are found in him in the most complete and perfect forms. Like: Messenger of Allah, His Prophet, His Servant, Prophet of Mercy etc.

The name Muhammad means “Praiseworthy” and occurs four times in the Qur’an. The Qur’an addresses Muhammad in the second person not by his name but by the appellations, messenger, servant of God (‘abd), announcer (bashir)[Qur’an 2:119], witness (shahid),[Qur’an 33:45], bearer of good tidings (mubashshir), warner (nathir),[Qur’an 11:2], reminder (mudhakkir),[Qur’an 88:21] one who calls unto God] (dā‘ī),[Qur’an 12:108] light personified (noor)[Qur’an 05:15], and the light-giving lamp (siraj munir)[Qur’an 73:1].

There are more than 99 names and attributes of Prophet Muhammad salallahu alaihi wasallam; here we list 99 of those names.
