As-salaamu 'alaykum, wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

As the question states, I was wondering what the significance is of saying "Mustafa" after, for example, the name of our Prophet - peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.

    Could you explain, maybe I got you wrong: I mean we usually use or say al-Mustafa المصطفى instead of the Prophet or the Messenger of Allah (pbuh). I have never heard somebody saying Mohammad Mustafa or al-Mustafa.

  • Thank you for the clarification. I have heard it used at least once, in a lecture by Ustadh Ali Ataie, where he said: "Muhammad, Mustafa (p.b.u.h.)".

    That sounds strange but i can't see any harm in it.

The word "Mustafa" (المصطفى in arabic) means the chosen one, or the chosen for the prophecy. As our prophet Muhammad was the Mustafa from all of the people.

Muslims do not say Almostafa after the name of the prophet Mohammad , they say it instead of his name (PBUH) , because it is one of his names .
