The Naming of Prophet Mohammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him).

Before Abdullah (i.e. his father).. And before Abdul Muttalib (i.e. his grandfather).. And before hundreds of years this birth was in letters.. A promise pronounced by Prophets advising their generations about it.. Giving glad tidings with it.. Eisah (Jesus) the son of Mariam (Mary) came to the Israelites who were astray so that he will guide them.. he said to them:

{يَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ إِنِّي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ إِلَيْكُم مُّصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيَّ مِنَ التَّوْرَاةِ وَمُبَشِّرًا بِرَسُولٍ يَأْتِي مِن بَعْدِي اسْمُهُ أَحْمَدُ} (الصف:6).

{"O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad."} (As-Saff: 6).

Allah revealed this hidden issue and gave glad tidings with it.. He mentioned his name in the Injeel(New Testament).. And also in the Torah(Old Testament) before the Injeel.. This is why the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) used to say:

[سميت أحمدا].

[I was named Ahmad] (Related by Ibn Sa'ad 1/104 with a good chain of reporters).

I don't know who was the one who justified this hidden issue and Allah made it possible and easy for him.. Was he his grandfather Abdul Muttalib or his mother Aminah Bint Wahab.. Maybe someone from the sky announced his name to his mother perhaps. But at the end he was named Muhammad..
