99 names of ALLAH
1. Allah
He is the One and Only Deity, the One Who is Worshipped and the OneWho deserves to be worshipped by the whole of His creation due to thePerfect Godly Attributes that He is described with."Allah! There is none worthy of worship but He, the Living, the Sustaining. Neither slumbernor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth. Who isthere that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He Knows what happens tothem (His creatures) in this world and in the Hereafter. They will not encompass anything of His Knowledge except that which He Wills. His Footstool extends over the heavens and theearth and he feels no fatigue in guarding them. He is the Most High, the MostGreat." (2:255)
2. Al-Ilaah (The Deity)
This is comprehensive and inclusive of all the perfect attributes and sublimecharacteristics. Every one of the beautiful names are included as well. Correctis the statement that the word ilaah is the root of the name Allah and that Allah is the nameinclusive of all the beautiful names and high characteristics and attributes and Allah is theAll-Knowing."Allah the High and Sublime states: Verily Allah is the One and Only Deity (IlaahunWaahid). Far Exalted is He from having a son and to Him belong everything in the heavensand the earth and Sufficient is Allah as a Caretaker. [Soorah An-Nisaa, Aayah 171]
3. Ar-Rabb (The Lord)
This name has been repeatedly mentioned in many verses. Ar-Rabb is theOne Who nurtures and sustains all of His servants through regulating theaffairs and granting all types of favors and blessings. More specifically He is the One Whonurtures and sustains those close to Him (awliyaa) by correcting and purifying their hearts,souls and manners. This is why their supplications are frequently made with this Noble Namebecause they seek this specific nurturing."And your Lord is Most Forgiving, Owner of Mercy. Were He to call them to account forwhat they had earned then surely He would have hastened on their punishment. But they havetheir appointed time beyond which they will find no escape."(18:58)
4. Al-Waahid (The One)
5. Al-Ahad (The Singular)
He is the One Who is singled out in all aspects of Perfection such thatnothing else shares with Him in them. It is obligatory upon theservants to single Him out alone in belief, saying and action byacknowledging His unrestricted perfection, His uniqueness andsingling Him out Alone for all types of worship."'O two companions of the prison! Are many different lords better or Allah, the One, theIrresistible?'" (12:39)"Say: I am only a warner and there is no god except Allah the One, the Irresistible." (38:65)
6. As-Samad (The Self-Sufficient)
He is the One upon Whom the whole of creation relies upon in allof their needs, predicaments and necessities. This due to Hisunrestricted perfection with regard to His Essence, His Names, HisAttributes and His Actions."Say: He is Allah the One. Allah the Self-Sufficient." (112:1-2)
7. Al-Hakeem (the All-Wise)
He is the One to Whom belongs the highest wisdom, the One Whois All-Wise in His creating and commanding, Who perfectedeverything He created, "and Who is better than Allah in judgmentfor a people who have firm faith?" (5:50)Therefore He has created nothing out of mere frivolity and He haslegislated nothing that is vain and of no use. The One to Whom belongs wisdom in thebeginning and the end. He has three areas of ruling which nothing else has a share in: Herules between His servants with respect to His Law, His Decree and His Recompense.Wisdom is to place something in its correct place."For those who believe not in the Hereafter is an evil description and for Allah is the highestdescription. He is the All-Mighty, All-Wise." (16:60)"It is He Who is the only God worshipped in the heaven and on the earth. He is the All-Wise,the All-Knowing." (43:84)And He is the Irresistible (supreme), above His slaves, and He is the All-wise, Well-Acquainted with all things. [Al-Anam (6):18]
He, the Exalted, the Most Wise, is described as having perfect wisdom and perfect judgmentbetween His creatures. Thus, the Most-wise is He who has vast knowledge and understandingof the beginnings of all matters and their ending. He is vast in His praise, perfect in Hispower and abundant in His mercy. He is the One who puts things in their (proper) places andsettles them in their suitable position according to His creation and His command. He cannotbe questioned (concerning what He does) and He cannot be criticized regarding His Wisdom.
His Wisdom Is Of Two Types:
One of them
is His wisdom concerning His creation. For verily, He createdthe creation in Truth comprising all of the Truth. His aim and His intention indoing so was truth. He created all of the creatures with the best organizationand He arranged them in the most perfect arrangement. He gave every creationa created form that is suitable for it. He even gave each part of the parts of thecreatures, and every limb from the limbs of the animals, its form and its shape.No one sees in His creation any mistake, deficiency or shortcoming. If theintellects of all of creation, from the first of them to the last of them, gatheredtogether to invent something like the creation of the Most Beneficent (Allah)or anything close to what He has placed in existence of perfection,organization and excellence, they would not be able to do so, how could theyhave any power to do anything like this? It is sufficient enough that theintelligent and wise ones amongst them know much of His Wisdom and theydiscover some of the beauty and perfection of His Wisdoms. This is somethingknown with certainty due to what is known of His magnificence, and theperfection of His attributes and the results of His Wisdoms in the creation andthe command. Verily, He challenges His slaves and commands them to look and look again, and to notice whether they find any defect or deficiency in Hiscreation. Their vision will return to them weary, dim and unable to find ablemish in anything of His creations.2.
The second type
is the wisdom in His legislation and command. For verily,He legislates the laws, reveals the scriptures and sends the messengers so thatthe slaves may know Him and worship Him. So what wisdom can be greaterthan this? And what bounty and generosity can be more magnificent than this?For verily, the awareness of Him, worshipping Him alone without any partner,doing deeds solely for Him, praising Him, thanking Him and lauding Him arethe best gifts from Him to His slaves. This is the greatest bounty for whoeverAllah favors with it. This is the most perfect pleasures and joy for the heartsand the souls. Likewise, this is the only cause of attaining eternal happinessand everlasting pleasure. If there were not in His command and His legislationanything other than this great wisdom-which is the foundation of good acts,the most perfect of pleasures, and because of it the creation was created, therewards will be deserved and Paradise and Hell-fire were created then it wouldbe sufficient and healing.Along with this, His legislation and His religion contain every good. Thus, His information(concerning His religion) fills the hearts with knowledge, conviction, faith and correct creedof beliefs. The hearts can remain firm with this (wisdom) and their deviation is removed, It(this wisdom) harvests every beautiful character, righteous deed, correct guidance andsensible conduct. His commands and prohibitions revolve around the goal of this wisdom and
