61.1 The Names of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace

1 Malik related to me from Ibn Shihab from Muhammad ibn Jubayr ibn Mut'im that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "I have five names. I am Muhammad. I am Ahmad. I am al-Mahi (the effacer) by whom Allah effaces disbelief. I am al-Hashir (the gatherer) before whom people are gathered. I am al-'Aqib (the last)."
