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 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.
