The 99 Names and Attributes of Allah (SWT)

Al-Asma-ul-Husna ( اَلاسْمَاءُ الْحُسناى )

The first of the five pillars of Islam is belief in Allah (SWT). As Muslims, we believe in Allah (SWT) in accordance with His beautiful names and attributes. Learning and memorising the names of Allah (SWT) will help us to identify the correct way to believe in Him.

“Allah – there is no deity except Him. To Him belong the best names.” (Qur’an 20:8)

 

“And to Allah belong the best names, so invoke Him by them.” (Qur’an 7:180)

 

Prophet Muhammad SAW said:

“Allah has ninety-nine names, i.e. one-hundred minus one, and whoever knows them will go to Paradise.” (Bukhari)

 

Abu Hurairah reported Prophet Muhammad SAW as saying:

Verily, there are 99 names for Allah, i.e. hundred excepting one. He who enumerates them would get into Paradise.  (Muslim)
