Bismillah The exalted Creator is said to have (3,000) names. 1,000 are known only to the Angels. 1,000 only the Prophets know. 300 in the Torah, 300 hundred in the Psalms, 300 hundred in the Gospel, 99 in the Holy Qur'an. One name is kept secret by the Almighty Lord. This is called Ismul-' A'zam the Supreme Name, to signify that one Name is unique to Him, and remains hidden within His Essence. The Divine Names in Islam are 99 in number; the word "Allah" rounds the number to 100. The 99 Names can be divided into 3 groups which are: Jalal-Majesty, Jamal-beautiful and Kamalperfection. The attributes of Allah that fall under the name of Jalal are known to us through His infinite and divine Majesty which are apparent through His creation throughout the universe. The attributes of Jamal, on the other hand, become evident with their plentiful blessings, which we respond to with gratitude. The Kamal names reveal works of art that have been created with perfection and wisdom and invite people to contemplate on this. The names that are mainly Jalal and Jamal are also symmetry in the names: He‘s both, merciful and wrathful, beautiful and majestic, forgiving and just, and so on.

says ―Iman lies between khawf and Raja‖ – that faith is situated between fear and hope. This implies that a correct relationship with Allah, is to understand all His names in a manner appropriate to each.
The Mystery of the Supreme Being Allah Allah: The name of Allah Allah is Al-Ismul-' A'zam, the greatest name which contains all the divine attributes and is the sign of the essence and cause of all existence. Allah does not resemble in any way any of His creation. The word Allah refers to Allah's name only, nothing else can assume this name or share it. Any person who is suffering from a big disease which is incurable reads this name 100 times and prays for his good health God will grant him health. Whoever reads this name of Allah 1000 times daily, all doubts and uncertainties will be removed from his heart and, instead, determinations and faith will become inborn in him... Insha-Allah.

The science of Islamic numerology is called (`ilm al-jafr or `ilm al-huroof) its based on Abjad (the numerical value of the letters. see below for full abjad diagram) It is reported that Prophet (peace be upon him) encouraged people to teach and learn about this concept. are reported to release practice Is said to recite " Ya Latif " 16.

How is Al-Latif - The Subtle used in a Wird: To Invoke or use the Name Al-Latif, in a repeating manner, over and over as a Wird-daily; Firstly the prefix or ‗article- Al-The’ is taken off and replaced with ‘Ya–Oh’ And also add, the suffix "u" to the end of the word. So Al-Latif is invoked as Ya-Latifu. The way it affects the reciter may vary as that is based on the reciters current Hal-state which is also linked to their Mijaz-temperament-an individual's personality or behavioural pattern, the attributes of the Mizaj are based on The four elements or in arabic akhlaat: (bad)-air, (khak)earth, (nar)-fire and (‘ma)-water. As the human body is filled with the four elements, which are in balance when a person is healthy. All diseases and disabilities resulted from an excess or deficit of one of these four elements, physically or spiritually.
FOR FULL ARTICLE EMAIL: email@example.com ( Air, associated with the liver , which is the hot and moist element.
Fire, associated with the spleen, which is the hot and dry element. Earth, associated with the gall bladder, which is the cold and dry element. Water, associated with the lungs and brain, which is the cold and moist element Earth and Water:- Heavy elements are strong, negative, passive, and female. Fire and Air:- Light elements are weak, positive, active, heavenly, and male.) Each of the 99 names also corresponds, to one of the four elements (air, water, earth and Fire) Ya-Latifu corresponds to the element of ‘Fire’ of the four elements. (see below for full 99 Names Of Allah with Abjad Value and corresponding Four elements chart) What this means is some people would only have to recite the name over a short period of time and they will be quickly effected by the name, from its spiritual energy or Anwar-lights and it
would affect their heart and faculties to Dhawq-taste or drink from its Asrar-secrets. Thus there Fath-Opening would start to happened but for others with would take more time. And each of the 99 Names or attributes resonate its own unique spiritual energy or signature that, affects the reader they resonate or vibrate through the brain and at Harvard, Yale Researchers found people who meditate grow bigger brains than those who don't. Particular divine names such as ―Ya Hayy,‖ ―Ya Jabbar,‖ and so forth, like the Allah-Supreme Name, require permission to recited, except in limited numbers of short duration. This is because each divine name carries a particular power, and the heart and mind of the disciple may not be prepared to handle an overload of this power, just as an electrical appliance is designed to handle only a certain type of current. Also at a higher level, or advance stage, the seeker under the authority of a guide, reads the name many hundreds or thousands of times, then calls on the corresponding Muwakkil-guarding Angel that protects Ya-Latifu secrets, as each of the Names is locked or guarded by a Muwakkil-guarding Angel- there are also Jinn Muwakkils too. But are not concerned about them, here. The more one reads with ‘idhn-permission a given Name of Allah, like Ya-Latifu, and if the seeker constantly prays and repeats that name of Allah, the closer that angel will come to you. This angel will gradually help and assist you in fulfilling you wishes and hopes. You will suddenly feel a help and assistance coming from the unseen EMAIL: your matters. And thus that holy name of Allah FOR FULL ARTICLE for all firstname.lastname@example.org becomes your Ismul-' A'zam to some degree.
Scientific proof supporting the effect dhikr has on the human brain- as a Wird. What is the brain itself? All the activity of the brain is nothing but bio-electrical activity in several distinct parts of it, amongst various sets of neurons (cellular groups) where each are assigned a specific duty, functioning as a whole. Each and every day 14 million neurons that make up the brain, are in constant interaction with 16 billion neighbouring neurons. All our activities and our understanding, that is all the functioning of the brain is the result of countless bio-electrical flows, are brought to existence in these sets of neurons occurring as a result of these interactions. When a Dhikr-remembrance is done as Wird-daily practice you continuously repeat a given name of Allah, a specific number of times and therefore reflecting a meaning that belongs to Allah During the repetition of that Name of Allah, certain regions of the brain are engaged and become active. There occurs a bio-electrical-(activity of the brain) flow in those neural groups of the brain. After that task is performed repeatedly (as you repeat on the same name or a group of names as in the
Wird example of Ya-Latifu 100, 1,000 times) the neural activity increases, and so does the bioelectrical energy. In turn, this overflows and new sets of neurons are put to work and so, some other regions of the brain become active. Therefore the brain begins to expand. The brain starts to bring out new meanings, perspectives and commentaries which it had not previously used before the practice of dhikr. It is opening to receive the Truth. So just think what the effect that dhikr has on the heart to receive the Truth! – (this is a scientific fact proven in Scientific American', December 1993, laboratory findings which described the practicing of dhikr-remembrance, namely the repetitions of nouns in the brain, increases neural activity)
Brain increases through meditation Dhikr-Meditation can actually increase the size of the brain. Specifically, it thickens the cerebral cortex in areas important for attention and concentration. In other words, the structure of an adult brain can change in response to repeated practice results of experiments showing that meditation can increase brain size, People who meditate grow bigger brains than those who don't-Researchers at Harvard, Yale. Some studies of meditation have linked the practice to increased activity in the left prefrontal cortex, which is associated with concentration, planning, meta-cognition (thinking about thinking), and positive affect (good feelings). There are similar studies linking depression and anxiety with decreased activity in the same region, and/or with dominant activity in the right prefrontal cortex. Meditation increases activity in the left prefrontal cortex, and the changes are stable over time even if you stop meditating for a while, the effect lingers. The neural systems important for concentration are given a big rest and a chance to rejuvenate. Kind of like letting the battery recharge. When you come out of meditation, these systems are fully primed and ready to go; your ability to focus will be at its peak. So each of the 99 names when read in repetition-Wird in Mediation- that is having presence of heart-Hudur Qalb, affects the brain by increase its size, which increases our ‗Aql- intellect. It‘s through the secrets of the numerical value of the huruf-letters (and the amount the name is repeated) which the angels are carrying, that makeup each of the divine Names of Allah. And Those Names open and up lock the angelic power they possess that releases power, grace and virtues of that Name into the consciousness, soul and heart and even the surrendering area are given protection from troubles and afflictions for the reader.

Why does it need to be broken. I have entrusted that secret to the hearts of those of My slaves whom I love'. in a tradition it says: ‗Whoever dies without the intention to go on the Hajj-Pilgrimage. and are summarized in the table.

Quran Al-Anfal 8:46 It is only through affliction that ranks are distinguished and their stations determined and everyone is in Levels or Ranks. and it is by those levels or ranks of understanding do we react to the hardship that befalls us.' and another Tradition "When Allah wills good for a servant of His. when afflicted with calamity say.

You will suddenly feel a help and assistance coming from the unseen for all your matters Some Sufis have also mentioned that if one with honest and humble intentions punctually reads Ismul-'A'zam. Every person has an Ismul-'A'zam. Remember.Also Every person has a personal Ismul-'A'zam too. Ya Allah. according to the concept of Har’uf-Abjad. And the more you read your Ismul-'A'zam. while reading your Ismul-'A'zam. May Allah give us the opportunity to worship and remember Him all the time and that we all follow the path of His beloved Prophet (peace be upon him).Preserved Tablet. He (peace be upon him) also said that Abjad is written in Lawuh-Mahfooz. So it should be Ya Muhaymin. Lets us pray that we all live as Muslims and take our last in breath as Mu‘mins. This angel will gradually help and assist you in fulfilling you wishes and hopes. 14 . So now it is necessary to search for Allah‘s name. So in this case. If one name of Allah cannot be found with 165. Furthermore. And since the amount is 165. This is power of Ismul'A'zam. It is reported that Prophet (peace be upon him) encouraged people to teach and learn about this concept. the closer this angel will come to you. Every name has a quantity. who constantly prays and repeats that name of Allah. the closer this angel will come to you. So the Ismul-'A'zam of Naseema is Ya Muhaymin Ya Wudood Ya Allah. you must put a YA in front of all the names of Allah. then two names should be added and the process should continue until a name or several names make up 165. Shaykh Fakhruddin Khwarizmi states that when Allah prescribes an Ism to someone based on his/her circumstances then that is their Ismul-'A'zam. Remember. If the name Allah is automatically part of your Ismul-'A'zam then you do not have to add it in the end. then the reader must read it 330 times daily by doubling it‖. make up 165. every name of Allah has a Muwakkil (angel). This angel will gradually help and assist you in fulfilling you wishes and hopes. as mention above already. either based on his/her name or circumstances. then one day you will be able to see and witness that angel. who constantly prays and repeats that name of Allah. Muhaymin. which also has 165 numbers according to Abjad. which is 20. It‘s based on the value of your name or circumstances from ‘ilm Abjad. The great Sufis and friends of Allah have given us very simple and logical methods to work out our Ismul-'A'zam. Ya Wadud. every name of Allah has a Muwakkil-angel. which is 145 and Wudud. And the more you read your Ismul-'A'zam. ―Naseema: this name‘s quantity according to Abjad is 165. It must be noted that The Sufi masters have advised us to associate the Dhati name ―Allah‖ in the end. You will suddenly feel a help and assistance coming from the unseen for all your matters.

these forms are be seen on people‘s faces like Nur or darkness. so we can’t hide them and from the Grave or unseen world our all our deeds are shown to the Prophet (saw) our relatives ancestors.

So thorough Dhikr-remember of Allah we can reach ‘higher then angels or became worst then dogs’. at which time they rejoice for the good deeds. as this is what they have done to their souls corrupted them. they say: O Allah! Don't let them die before you guide them as you have guided us.' and the tradition "Do not shame your dead with your evil deeds for your deeds are shown to your relatives among the dwellers of the graves. fathers and mothers. “Is he who was dead and We gave him life and set for him a light whereby he can walk amongst men. Therefore be wary of Allah and do not harm your dead. like him who is in the darkness from which he can never come out?” [6:122]. return its equivalent in good. So our actions and thoughts taken on form. and they are shown to Prophets as well as fathers and mothers on Fridays. into hideous shapes. if otherwise. Allah says. Think. ugly form that will smell worst then a dead donkey and haunt him in his grave. through each of our breaths and thoughts. only saintly people can see the real form of peoples souls. Also the Nur of good actions will turn into Angels which smell like perfume and be a companion for the person in his grave. while a person with bad actions will have his actions turned into a dark. the actions of too much bad language transform into a Dog. So While alive on earth the Saints can read our all deeds on our faces. Whenever they see a good deed they rejoice and are pleased. The heart receives life and light and then its firasah will almost never be wrong. whether our acts are like dead trees that have to be cut and thrown into fire or like living things that must be put into eternal area of heaven. 'The works of the living are clear to the dead." and the tradition 'One's deeds are shown to Allah on Monday and Thursday. and that person will turn into a dog and will be barking like a dog as he/she barked on earth with foul language this is known in hadith. and the latter increase the brightness and light of their faces. in general. but if they see evil they say: O Allah. The true firasah is obtained from life and from the light Allah grants to whom He wishes from amongst His true servants. Its the same when perform Dhikr. such as lying and too much bad language. and same is true with words of truth-Haqq and thoughts and the opposite is true with darkness. and people of bad actions will take the shapes on bad forms spiritual and physically ones like animals.
even without will -. There are many traditions about the high stations-maqams of the saints. "Shah Naqshband said. which is part of their creation.. Awareness in the Moment. summon 19 . and complete Presence will lead you to complete Vision. Lam. Thus the Sufi is called ‘Ibn Waqtihi-Son of the moment’.as a sign of obedience. So it is a must for everyone to safeguard his breath in the time of his inhalation and exhalation. Therefore they must safeguard it by seeking forgiveness (istighfar) because seeking forgiveness will purify it and sanctify it and prepare the seeker for the Real Manifestation of Allah everywhere. and complete Vision will lead you to complete Manifestation of Allah's Ninety-Nine Names and Attributes." Dhikr is flowing in the body of every single living creatures by the necessity of their breath -. "Allah's Attributes are as numerous as the breaths of human beings. The name 'Allah' which encompasses the ninety-nine Names and Attributes consists of four letters. "Ha." breathe out with "Hu." and thus the Naqshbandi's say breathe in with "Allah. "This Order is built on breath. every movement and every thought is up in this Dua plea from the Hizbul Bahr: Nas-alukal 'ismata fil harakati was-sakanati wal kalimati wal iradati wal khatarati minash-shukuki wa-dhununi wal awhamis-satirati lil qulubi 'an mutala'atil ghuyub. one traditions says ‗There are 300 friends of Allah in the creation whose hearts are like that of Prophet Adam ‗alaihis salam. There are 5 whose hearts are like that of Jibra‘il and 3 whose hearts are like that of Mika‘il and one whose heart is like the heart of Israfil." It must be known by everyone that securing the breath from heedlessness is difficult for seekers. The people of Sufism say that the absolute unseen Essence of Allah Exalted and Almighty is expressed by the last letter vowelized by the Alif. Alif." It represents the Absolutely Unseen "He-ness" of the Exalted God Safeguarding your breath from heedlessness will lead you to complete Presence. the sound of the letter "Ha" of the Divine Name Allah is made with every exhalation and inhalation. Lam and the same Hah (ALLAH). then one of the three whose heart is like Mika‘il replaces him and one of the five (whose hearts are like Jibra‘il) replaces him. There are 40 whose hearts are similar to the heart of Musa ‗alaihis salam and 7 whose hearts are similar to the heart of Ibrahim ‗alaihis salam.‘ This is why we need to be mindful of breathing and thoughts through Dhikr. and the aim is in every breath inhaled and exhaled must be done with awareness and presence of mind and so that the mind does not stray into forgetfulness. Through their breathing. because it is said. In our Shadhili Master' s Hizbul Bahr. When he (whose heart is like Israfil) dies.or we can have the Nur of Angels running through our blood until our hearts are like Angels(Through Dhikr of Allahs Names). the 1st of the 12 Principles of the Naqshbandi Way is "Conscious Breathing" or Awareness in the Breath. Allah leads you to the Manifestation of His Ninety-Nine Names and Attributes and all His other Attributes. every breath.
