Titles of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in the Holy Qur’an
It is reported in Kashshaf-e-Haqiqat that Jafar bin Muhammad Sadiq (A.S) said: The Almighty Lord has remembered my grandfather, the Messenger of God, by several names.
First ‘Muhammad’ in the verse:
Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Apostle of Allah and the Last of the prophets (33:40)
Second: ‘Ahmad’ as He has said:
And when Isa son of Maryam said: O children of Israel! Surely I am the apostle of Allah to you, verifying that which is before me of the Taurat and giving the good news of an Apostle who will come after me, his name being Ahmad, (61:6)
Third: ‘Abdullah’ when He says:
And that when the servant of Allah (Abdillah) stood up calling upon Him, they well nigh crowded him (to death). (72:19)
Fourth and fifth: ‘Taha’ and ‘Yasin’.
By ‘Taha’ is perhaps meant ‘Taalubush Shafat’ (One who intercedes) and by ‘Yasin’ ‘O! Syedul Bashar’ (Chief of men). It may also be that ‘Yasin’ denotes ‘perfect man’. Anyway He swears by the Qur’an, which contains wisdom. There are various sciences and lessons in it as well as many truths, wisdoms, admonitions and warnings. It is, therefore, proper that he (Holy Prophet) may have the adjective ‘Hakim’ as the conveyer of Qur’an, which is from the ‘Hakim’ (Ruler), that is Allah.
