Benefit of Naming a Child Muhammad

Q: I have kept my baby boy’s name Muhammad. I have heard that to keep child’s name Muhammad is worth blessing for the parents in the hereafter. Is this true?

Sayyidina Abu Umaamah (Radhiyallaahu Anhu) narrates the following Hadeeth:

Whoever gives birth to a male child and names him Mohammed because of love for me (Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and to derive Barakah from my name, he (the father) and his child will be in Jannah (Kanzul Ummaal V16 P422).

This can apply to the mother too.

Allah Ta’aala knows best.
