Ism e Mohammad – The Sacred Self of Prophet Mohammad

Ism e Mohammad is the most powerful name of Prophet Mohammad. In fact, Mohammad ( محمد ) is the personal name of Holy Prophet just as Allah ( اَللّٰہُ ) is  personal name of Allah. While, rest of their names are attributive names. That is why, the sacred name of ‘Mohammad’ is most related to his holy self. Furthermore, out of all names of Prophet Muhammad, it encompasses all his attributes. Hence, contemplation of this name is most effective medium to get closer to him and consequently gain his marvelous beneficence. For the first time in history of Faqr, Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman is giving the sacred name of Mohammad for contemplation (tasawur) to his disciples.

Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen says;

  • Sacred face of Holy Prophet was Ism-e-Allah Zaat(the most powerful zikr) and his sacred self was Ism e Mohammad for his Companions during his life. Now to have access to the court of Prophet, the only way is contemplation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat (Ism e Azam) and Sacred name of Mohammad. However, its condition is that the seeker has received them from perfect spiritual guide whom the Holy Prophet has spiritually permitted to grant them to seekers of Allah. (The Mohammadan Reality)

Moreover, contemplation of  sacred name of Mohammad has extremely pleasant and luminous effects on the esoteric self (batin) of the contemplator.  Certainly, it makes the spiritual elevation of seeker of Allah faster and easier.

Satan fears Ism e Mohammad

You must know that the Holy Prophet is the righteous guide in both the worlds. Having the privilege of seeing his holy self-enhances and adorns the faith. Keep in mind that Allah has sent him only for guidance on the right path. Satan can never be a righteous guide. He can never acquire the sacred countenance of Prophet Mohammad. Moreover a Muslim can ever get righteousness from him. Satan fears from Ism-e-Allah ZaatIsm e Mohammad and righteousness. Satan is afraid of them just like a non-Muslim fears from Islamic creed. As it is like a killing sword for him. (Mehak-ul-Faqr Kalan)
