Question

Aoa sir pls tell me that the names Ahmed and Muhammad are creation of Allah or we will say these were thr speech of Allah ? As He himself gave these two names to Muhammad PBUH

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

The word of Allah is not created. The word Muhammad mentioned in the Quran as well as the word Ahmad are not created because they are from the words of Allah. But the words of human beings are created.

So if someone is called Mohammed or Ahmed, then their name is created because it is from the words of human beings, although when that word was mentioned in the Quran was not created.

Allah knows best.
