EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from Arabic مُحَمَّد (muḥammad, praised, commendable, laudable), the passive participle of حَمَّدَ (ḥammada, to praise, commend, laud, extol). From the same triconsonantal root ح م د (ḥ-m-d) as, but distinct from, Mahmud.

Proper nounEdit

Muhammad (plural Muhammads)

  1. (uncountable) The figure who introduced Islam, the man to whom the Quran was revealed; considered a prophet by Muslims and Baha'is.

  2. (uncountable) The 47th sura (chapter) of the Qur'an.
  3. (countable) A male given name very popular among Muslims.
