The 99 Names of Allah

Praise and Glorify Allah!

"He is Allah, the Creator, the Shaper out of naught, the Fashioner. His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him, and He is the Mighty, the Wise." (59:24)

"Allah is He, there is no deity other than He; to Him belongs the Most Beautiful Names." (20:8)

"Say (unto mankind): Cry unto Allah, or cry unto Ar-Rahman (The Beneficent); unto whichsoever you cry (it is the same). His are the most beautiful names..." (17:110)

Abu Huraira reported that the Messenger of Allah said, "Allah has ninety-nine names, one hundred less one. Whoever ahsaha (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) will enter Paradise. (Recorded by al-Bukhari and Muslim)
