99 Names Of ALLAH

Do You Know?

The 99 Names of Allah, also known as The 99 Most Beautiful Names of God (Arabic: أسماء الله الحسنى transliteration: Asma’ Allah al-Ḥusná), are the names of God (specifically, attributes) by which Muslims regard God and which are traditionally maintained as described in the Qur’an, and Sunnah, amongst other places.

Prophet Muhammad(P.B.U.H) used to call God by all His Names:

اللهم إني ادعوك بأسمائك الحسنى كلها “O God, I invoke You with all of Your Beautiful Names.

Prophet Muhammad(P.B.U.H) is also reported to have said in a famous hadith:

“Verily, there are ninety-nine names of God, one hundred minus one. He who enumerates [and believes in them and the one God behind] them would get into Paradise”.


Of note is that this hadith does not say that there are only 99 names, but 99 names that are better than the others.

“He is Allah, the Creator, the Originator, The Fashioner, to Him belong the most beautiful names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth, do declare His praises and glory. And He is the Exalted in Might, The Wise. (Quran 59:24)
