99 Names of Allah

99 Names of Allah

Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has said: “Adopt the akhlaq (character) of Divinity”
The only way to know Allah is through His attributes. In order to understand these names and apply them to our lives, we need to look at 3 facets of each of the attributes.

  1. Looking at the name and its meaning in relation to Allah.
  2. Assuming that name within our psychology.
  3. The actions which manifest themselves as a result of understanding the name.

All creation consists of Allah’s own substance. The basic matter of all things is contained within His singular reality. Sufis call this spiritual/material substance the 99 Beautiful Names of Allah. These names are Allah’s diverse attributes, all of which comprise His entire being. Allah’s essence holds all of these qualities as potential energy. In the act of creation, His potential energy becomes kinetic.
