Muhammad (al-Amin) Muttalib born to Abdullah and Amina

On the morning of Monday, April 22, 571 A.D., a grandson was born to Abdul Muttalib, who named him Muhammad (the extolled one). He gave a banquet in honour of his grandson to which he invited a number of Qoraish tribesmen and peers.

When they inquired from him why he had chosen to name Muhammad, thus changing the tradition of using the ancestors' names, Abdul Muttalib answered, "I did so with the wish that my grandson would be praised by God in heaven and on earth by men."
