99 Names of Muhammad


99 Names of Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) – Asma Muhammad – In Arabic, English Meanings & Detailed Information


A seventeenth-century Suhrawardi mystic of Ucch (Pakistan) composed a work called Jawahir al-auliya (Jewels of the Saints), that contains an interesting chapter on the virtues and blessing powers of Muhammad’s ninety-nine names. The author recounts various traditions connected with their use. The Great saint Shaykh Abdul Qadir Gilani is reported to have said that a person who recites them once every day and every night will be preserved from all kinds of affliction, and his faith will always remain undisturbed.

According to the author’s ancestor, Makhdum Jahaniyan of Ucch, the recitation of these names after the dawn prayer will cause all sins, great and small, open and secret, to be forgiven, and Sultan Sayyid Mahmud Nasiruddin Bukhari is reported to have said that whoever recites them seven times after the noon prayer will never be harassed by birds or beasts. Another Sufi ascribed to their elevenfold recitation after the evening prayer an increase in knowledge, mildness, and gnosis.

But the greatest reward, for someone who recites Muhammad’s ninety-nine names twelve times after the night prayer, was revealed to Makhdum Jahaniyan by the Prophet himself during that Sufi’s visit to Medina: Muhammad promised that he would definitely bring that person to Paradise, and would not enter it without him.

Many modern printed copies of the Qu’ran enumerate the ninety-nine Divine Names at the beginning and list the ninety-nine names of the Prophet on the final two pages. An annotated list Appendix is on the next page.

Note: The manner of reciting the noble names is as such you recite sayyiduna then the name and finish with sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, for example (Sayyiduna Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Sayyiduna Ahmad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Sayyiduna Hamid sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Sayyiduna Mahmud sallallahu alayhi wa sallam…etc).

  1. Mashallah.. 99names of Muhammad.. Really beautiful names.. =)
    My mom said that we should try to remember 99 names of Muhammad (saw) as well.. And now I found the names.. =) Very nice=)

  2. I believe there is a difference between the names of Muhammad, SAWS, such as Ahmed, or the Prophet’s kunya AbalQasim, or his name, Qasim, as well,and the words describing him in the Qur’an, such as Bashir, nathir, etc. which are not names of his but attributes, or descriptive forms. Allah subhanahu has 99 names which is well known. But it is the first time I have heard anyone say that the Prophet SAWS, has 99 names, and it seems to be a mistaken belief, nor do these names have any significant supernatural, or healing qualities, as is mentionned. It is best to research such claims and verify than to follow traditions blindly.I suggest all muslims rely on the Qur’an and the sunnah ie Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim. Sincerely, a muslimah.

    • i am also unsure of these 99 names of the prophet (peace & blessings be upon him) , i have only heard of some names but the rest of them are just based on allah’s attributes (;'<)in what way is the prophet (pbuh) 'awwal(un)' [first]?
      allahu a'lam

  3. really good fonts and appearance, it will still more better if u add for a particular task which name and how many times should be recited, it will be very helpful indeed , thanks .jazzkallah

  6. i agree with Diamond, we must ensure that we follow traditions and Sahih hadith. If there is no evidence for such practices amongst the first Suhaba then we must question the need for innovations. By claiming the 99 names of prophet (saw) are we not equating them to names of Allah (sat). Be careful muslims, our prophet (saw) did not blindly follow the traditions of his elders and tribe, so why should we. We can show our respect to our beloved prophet (saw) by practicing what he prescribed us to do and what he practiced in his life. Allah (sat) knows best.

  7. إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا

  8. اللهم صَــــــلٌ علَےَ مُحمَّــــــــدْ و علَےَ آل مُحمَّــــــــدْ
    كما صَــــــلٌيت علَےَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ و علَےَ آل إِبْرَاهِيمَ إِنَّك حَمِيدٌ مَجِيدٌ

    اللهم بارك علَےَ مُحمَّــــــــدْ و علَےَ آل مُحمَّــــــــدْ
    كما باركت علَےَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ و علَےَ آل إِبْرَاهِيمَ إِنَّك حَمِيدٌ مَجِيد
