Names & Attributes

These names are based on the book 'Exemplary Principles concerning the beautiful names and attributes of Allah' By Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Saalih Al-Uthaymeen.


The names has been divided into two categories. 


First (81 Names) is from the Quran and second (18) is from the Sunnah.


Sheikh Uthaymeen say's "And we have not mentioned any Names that come in the texts as mudhaaf (an Arabic construction that shows possession), like Rabb al-Aalameen (the Lord of all the worlds), and Badee' as-Samaawaati wal-Ardh (the Originating Creator of the Heavens and the Earth). There are many examples of this. It was not clear to us that they were intended (from the hadith), and knowledge (of what is most correct) is only with Allah, the Exalted."

إنَّ لِلَّهِ تِسْعَةً وَتِسْعِينَ اسْماً مِاأَةً إِلاَّ وَاحِدًا مَنْ أَحْصاَهَا دَخَلَ الْجَنَّةَ


The Prophet (Peace and blessing be upon Him) said, "Verily Allah has ninety-nine Names, one shy of a hundred. whoever enumerates them will enter Paradise."
