Life[ edit ] Born in in Omansouthern Arabiato Azdi parents of modest means al-Farahidi became a leading grammarian of Basra in Iraq.
Lexicology[ edit ] As an Arabic name, it has its origins in a Quranic prophecy attributed to Jesus in the Quran In its transliteration the name has one of the highest number of spelling variations in the world.
He concludes that the development of the term being used as a name in reference to Muhammad came later in the context of Christian-Muslim polemics, particularly with Muslim attempts to equate Muhammad with the Biblical 'Paraclete', owing to a prophecy attributed to Jesus in the Quranic verse O Children of Israel!
I am the messenger of Allah unto you, confirming that which was revealed before me in the Torah, and bringing good tidings of a messenger who cometh after me, whose name is the Praised One.
Yet when he hath come unto them with clear proofs, they say: This is mere magic. In his Farewell Discourse to his disciples, Jesus promised that he would "send the Holy Spirit " to them after his departure, in John They do not help to make the pronominal reference any clearer as to who it was whose Evidences were greeted as magic.
With the absence of any claim on this passage either by Ibn Ishaq or Ibn Hishammay we go further and suggest that the two Arabic words rendered by Dr. Periklutos does not come into the picture as far as Ibn Ishaq and Ibn Hisham are concerned.
The deception is not theirs.
The opportunity to introduce Ahmad was not accepted - though it is highly improbable that they were aware of it being a possible rendering of Periklutos. It would have clinched the argument to have followed the Johannine references with a Quranic quotation.
Accordingly to find a text of the Gospels from which Ibn Ishaq could have drawn his quotation we must look for a version which differs from all others in displaying these characteristics.
Such a text is the Palestinian Syriac Lectionary of the Gospels which will conclusively prove that the Arabic writer had a Syriac text before him which he, or his informant, skillfully manipulated to provide the reading we have in the Sira.
But there are many instances prior to this date of boys called 'Muhammad. Later traditions that the prophet's name was Ahmad show that this had not always been obvious, though commentators assume it after about 22 AH.
I reiterate, that it was for this cause alone that Jesus called the Holy Spirit the Paraclete, since He sought to console His disciples for His departure, and recall to them all that He had said, all that He had done before their eyes, all that they were called to propagate throughout the world by their witness.
Paraclete thus signifies "consoler", while Muhammad means "to give thanks", or "to give grace", a meaning which has no connection whatever with the word Paraclete.
It is used commonly all over the Muslim worldalthough primarily in the Middle East. More recently, this transliteration has become increasing popular in the United States due to use by members of the African American community. Ahmed is the most common variant transliteration, used especially in the context of the Ottoman Empire.
This transliteration is also used throughout the Muslim world. Ahmet is the modern Turkish transliteration.
Modern Turkish uses a Latin-based alphabet, and most Arabic-derived names have standardized Turkish spellings. Achmat is the fairly standard transliteration used by South Africa's Muslim community, and its pronunciation shows evidence of the influence of Afrikaans:Authors.
