While ‘Abdul Muttalib was considering the name Muhammad, due to the dream that he had seen, the mother of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saw a pious dream in which she was informed that she was carrying the most saintly creation and the leader of all nations. According to one narration, she was directed to keep his name Muhammad, and according to another narration, she was instructed to name him Ahmed.

Allah Ta‘ala also mentions the same two names in the Holy Qur’aan in the following verses:

مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوۡلُ اللّٰہِ ؕ

Muhammed is the prophet of Allah Ta‘ala

وَ اِذۡ قَالَ عِیۡسَی ابۡنُ مَرۡیَمَ یٰبَنِیۡۤ اِسۡرَآءِیۡلَ اِنِّیۡ رَسُوۡلُ اللّٰہِ اِلَیۡکُمۡ مُّصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَیۡنَ یَدَیَّ مِنَ التَّوۡرٰىۃِ وَ مُبَشِّرًۢا بِرَسُوۡلٍ یَّاۡتِیۡ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِی اسۡمُہٗۤ اَحۡمَدُ ؕ

And when ‘Isa bin Maryam said, “O children of Israa‘eel! I am the messenger of Allah (sent) to you, confirming the Torah (that came) before me and (giving) glad tidings of a prophet to come after me whose name shall be Ahmed.”

(Extracted from Seeratul Mustafa 1/61-62)
