Verily, belief in the Names and Attributes of Allah is one of the pillars of faith in Allah, the Exalted. They are:

1. Belief in the existence of Allah

2. Belief in His Lordship (Ruboobiyyah)

3. Belief in His sole Right to all forms of worship (Uloohiyyah)

4. Belief in His Names and Attributes (Asmaa' was-Sifaat)

It is not possible for anyone to worship Allah in a complete way,

until he has acquired knowledge of the Names and Attribute of Allah

the Exalted, in order to worship Him upon clarity. Allah, the Exalted, has said:

وَلِلَّهِ ٱلۡأَسۡمَآءُ ٱلۡحُسۡنَىٰ فَٱدۡعُوهُ بِہَا‌ۖ

And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allah, so call on Him by them. Qur'an 7: 180

1 Kitab al-Tawhid pg. 26-27
