Any special virtue for keeping the name Muhammad?


Is there any special virtue mentioned in the Hadith Sharif regarding keeping the name Muhammad, other than it being the blessed name of Nabi (sallallahu  ‘alayhi wasallam). I have noticed many of our Akabir having Muhammad as their first name.



The Hadith Masters clearly state that there is no such authentic Hadith.

(Al-Manarul Munif, Hadiths: 80, 94, 95 and Lamahat min Tarikhis Sunnah, pg.168)

Muslims in general have a close attachment to the name Muhammad because of their love for Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam). This love is sufficient a motivation.



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
