Names of Allah

Bismillah walhamdulillahi Rabbil ‘Aalameen, was Salaatu was Salaamu ‘alaa Rasoolihil Ameen
All praise is for Allah who has guided us to Islam, a praise that is countless, good and blessed.
All praise is for Allah who has blessed us all, from our varying backgrounds and locations, with the intention of coming closer to Him, by learning, memorizing, practicing, and remembering His Most Beautiful Names and Attributes.

وَلِلَّهِ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ فَادْعُوهُ بِهَا

And to Allah belongs the Most Beautiful Names, so call on Him by them. (7:180)

Abu Hurayrah radi Allahu anhu reported that the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah has ninty-nine names, one hundred less one. Whoever ‘ahsaaha‘ will enter Jannah. [Bukhari and Muslim]

The most important thing for us to remember is that the hadeeth says “man ahsaahaa”, meaning, according to shaykh Jamaal Zarabozo and shaykh Yasir Qadhi: whoever enumerates them, believes in them, ponders their meanings, worships Allah by them and supplicates with them, and acts by them according to one’s belief in them. So it’s not just about memorizing the names of Allah ta’ala, we mustahsaaha‘.

InshaAllah this page will include a collection of the authentic Names of Allah, each Name will be covered in a detailed manner including roots, where it is found in the Qur’an and Sunnah, how we live by this Name, and what the scholars of Islam have said concerning the Name.

I would like to mention that the authentic Names of Allah ta’ala are very important to know, and I am not sharing these from my own knowledge but based on courses I have taken by trustworthy teachers. (may Allah ta’ala reward all the teachers of this ummah, Ameen)

With the Blessings of Allah, we have shared so far:

    Asalam alaikum wa rahamatullahi wa barakatuhu,
    jazakallahu khairan on your work on detailed explanations on the names of Allah. I really really urge you to add more, as there are not many good sources to learn the names and are difficult to find. I have looking for reliable sources for some time now, and the definitions vary from site to site, and it is confusing for a revert like me.
    Is there a single book/article you are getting your detailed explanations, because i would be highly interested in discovering this treasure source!
    May Allah reward you for your continued excellent effort on explaining His Names with nothing less than Jannatul-Firdaus, Ameen.

    wa alaykum salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

    wa iyyaki alhamdulillah.

    InshaAllah I am going to release a short e-book with all of these Names and some more to help spread this information.

    It is not from one source or book, but if you flip through some of the resources at the top of the page, they have pretty good info.

    here is a nice document as well: http://bit.ly/tMeQO

    may Allah increase you in beneficial knowledge.

    Assalamoalaikum wa rahamtullahi wa barakatohu

    MashAllah this is wonderful just full of blessing alhamdulillahi Rabb il Alaameen.

    just one thing, i’ve clicked on one of the links above which i am really just waiting to download and this is the “An Explanation to the Beautiful and Perfect Names of Allah – Shaykh Nasir As-Sa’di rahimahullah (Free PDF)”

    i m really sorry to bother you but i ve tried several times and it is not working this link.

    The sisters who conduct the halaqas which i attend also base their lectures on the most Beautiful Names of Allah SWT on Shaikh As-Sa’di books so i m just too interested in this article.

    Do you think you can help me out by checking out the link? jazaki Allah khairen!!!!

    Assalam o alaikum,
    I watched the nasheed by mishary al fasy on the names of Allah. Are these names authentic? Can you please provide meaning and explanation of the names mentioned in this nasheed? How can we differentiate between the authentic and unauthentic names?

  15. August 4, 2011 5:10 pm

    wa alaykum salam wa rahmatullah Aisha,

    Yes, the names in his nasheed are authentic and are based on the list of 99 Names by the scholar Shaykh ibn Uthaymeen. Here is a resource you can use to have a basic understanding of these Names: http://www.nurayn.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/lulgift.pdf

    You can differentiate by looking at the source. If the Name is not in the Qur’an and Sunnah, generally it is not considered an authentic Name. You can focus on the Names in the document and nasheed. Allah knows best.

    wa alaykum salam wa rahmatullah sister,

    Wearing the Names of Allah do not have any religious benefit. I cannot say if it is permissible or not, please check islamqa or ask a scholar/imam you know. Allah knows best.

    SubhanAllah!!! This is what I was looking for. Whoever done them, I really appreciate it. I want to ask your permission if I could use information on 99 names of Allah on my page of Islamic arts and on Facebook?
    Please let me know, shukran.

    wa alaykum salam,

    Yes, please use them and spread them! If you go to my new site, http://www.tayyibaat.com, you will find some new Names there inshaAllah. Jazakillahu khayran.

  24. May 22, 2012 11:43 pm

    According to some scholars, no it is not a Name but rather an Attribute of Allah – that He does ‘adl. Allah knows best.
