Muhammad the Messenger of Allah

1712 - مُحَمَّدٌ رَسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله‏


(مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ) .1

"Muhammad is the Apostle of Allah." 2

(لَقَدْ جَاءَكُمْ رَسُولٌ مِنْ أَنْفُسِكُمْ عَزِيزٌ عَلَيْهِ مَا عَنِتُّمْ حَرِيصٌ عَلَيْكُمْ بِالْمُؤْمِنِين رَؤُوفٌ رَحِيمٌ) .3

"There has certainly come to you an apostle from among yourselves. Grievous to him is your distress; he has deep concern for you, and is most kind and merciful to the faithful." 4

(يَا أَيُّهَا النِّبِيُّ إِنَّا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ شَاهِداً وَمُبَشِّراً وَنَذِيراً * ودَاعِياً إِلَى اللَّهِ بِإِذْنِهِ وَسِرَاجاً مُنِيراً) .5

"O Prophet! Indeed We have sent you as a witness, as a bearer of good news and as a warner and as a summoner to Allah by His permission, and as a radiant lamp." 6

6018.رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله - لَمّا سألَهُ يَهوديٌّ عَن وَجهِ تَسمِيَتِهِ بمُحمّدٍ وأحمَدَ وأبي القاسِمِ وبَشيرٍ ونَذيرٍ وداعٍ ؟ - : أمّا مُحمّدٌ فإنّي مَحمودٌ في الأرضِ ، وأمّا أحمَدُ فإنّي مَحمودٌ في السَّماءِ ، وأمّا أبو القاسِمِ فإنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّوجلَّ يَقسِمُ يَومَ القِيامَةِ قِسمَةَ النّارِ ؛ فمَن كَفَرَ بِي مِن الأوَّلينَ والآخِرينَ ففي النّارِ ، ويَقسِمُ قِسمَةَ الجَنّةِ ؛ فمَن آمَنَ بي وأقَرَّ بِنُبُوَّتي ففي الجَنّةِ . وأمّا الدّاعي فإنّي أدعُو النّاسَ إلى‏ دِينِ ربّي عَزَّوجلَّ ، وأمّا النَّذيرُ فإنّي اُنذِرُ بالنّارِ مَن عَصاني ، وأمّا البَشيرُ فإنّي اُبشِّرُ بالجَنّةِ مَن أطاعَني .7

6018. The Prophet (SAWA), when a Jew asked him about the reason for him being called Muhammad, Ahmad, Abu al-Qasim, Bashir, Nadhir, and Dai - he replied, 'As for Muhammad, I am praised [mahmud] in this earth, and Ahmad is that I am praised in the Heaven. As for Abu al-Qasim, Allah will divide the Day of Resurrection into two parts; the part (qisma) of Hell, and those who disbelieve in me from among the first ones to the last ones will be in the Hellfire; and the part of Heaven, and whoever believes in me from among the first ones to the last ones, and has acknowledged my prophethood will be in Heaven. Al-Dai [the caller] is that I call people to the religion of my Lord Almighty. Al-Nadhir [the warner] is that I warn people who disobey me about the Hellfire. Al-Bashir [bringer of good news] is that I bring the good news of Heaven to those who obey me.' 8
