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. The response to divine jalal is fear, and the response to jamal is hope. In a well known tradition it 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.

He Allah is the One who is so discreet in His actions that He discerns the hidden and secret. (For the one that has the ‗Ijazapermission to recite Ya Latif which is part of our daily Wird in our Tariqah too).

He is Gentle with them with respect to matters that are external to them with every goodness and righteousness. Whoever reads this Name Ya Latif daily. Allah will grant abundance in his rizq (sustenance) and cause all his tasks to be accomplished without difficulties.
By reading this name morning and evening one will be constantly in the realm of Allah‘s care and gentleness. Allah will grant abundance in his Rizq. Also From the ‗Book of the Healing of the Sickness and Pains’ by Shaykh Muhammad ibn Ja'far al-Kittani al-Hasani there is a section about the ‗Practical guide of asking Forgiveness of Wrong Actions’. Increase the number to 133 in times of difficulty. (Again I stress one needs 'ijaza and best practise is to join the tariqah) Numerical value-Abjad and Al-Latif –The Subtle The best and effective way that the 99 names are used is through their hidden spiritual numerical value called Abjad. The meaning of ―lutf‖ is Allah bringing benefit and deflecting harm from an individual in a manner that that individual is unaware of). are reported to release practice Is said to recite " Ya Latif " 16. The 10 th extra 10 addition. ―Ya Latif” 129 times in the morning and evening. Daal –Abjad. Just as in chemistry were you have ‗Periodic Table of Elements‘ (elements are placed in order of increasing atomic numbers were each element is represented by a 2 letters and numbers). (The word abjad is an acronym derived from the first four consonantal shapes in the Arabic alphabet (Alif. The science of Islamic numerology is called (`ilm al-jafr or `ilm al-huroof) its based on Abjad (the numerical value of the letters. thus the only way to really benefit 100% is to join tariqah. Baa. He (peace be upon him) also said that Abjad is written in Lauh-Mahfooz. To be open the sirr-secrets of the noble name Ya-Latif one needs to have ‗Ijaza-permission to recite Ya Latif which is part of Tariqah. Anyone involved in any adversity at all should make wudhu in the proper manner and offer 2 rakaat salat then bearing in mind the objective (like deliverance from adversity) say this Ism 129 times: Allah will surely grant him deliverance Insha Allah. see below for full abjad diagram) It is reported that Prophet (peace be upon him) encouraged people to teach and learn about this concept. Jeem. 7 .641 times. 34 are mentioned and also another someone from the Fire. Preserved Tablet. Abjad -is assigning each of the Arabic alphabet with numerical values. Habib Kadhim said it encompasses all the names of Allah which express His beauty.Whoever reads this name 133 times daily.
Example of Abjad from Alah’s Name Al-Latif –The Subtle 129 times The basic Wird of Shadhiliyyah path. The Dhikr of Ya Latif is recited 129 times in the morning, but why 129 times because in Its numerical value when the word is broken down by each letterhuruf equals= 129 times; Lam-Ta-Yaa-Fa ; Lam=30 Ta=9 Ya=10 fa=80 totals to = 129 129 is numerical value of Allah‘s name Al-Latif, This is The same method, that Abjad is used for bismillah-hir-rahman-nir-rahim which totals or equals=786 and the name Muhammad (saw) which totals to or equals=92 in Abjad and Allah equals=66.
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. ( 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 for all your matters. And thus that holy name of Allah 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.
but the heart of My believing slave can contain Me. He gains the power of firasa. Thus the one who for example reads Ya-Latifu becomes ‘Abdal-Latif. the eye. and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory-(nafil) works so that I shall love him. when the reality of this name is manifested in such a person. but also with eyes that are empowered by his inner vision. deposits in the heart of His servant.

For Allah has servants who know (the truth about people) through ‗reading the signs‘ (tawassum).insight and sees with the Nur-Light of God and has became the manifestation of the divine name/s of Allah.

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

To get out of this spiritual stagnation one needs quality Ibadah. referring to the veiled hearts: How many of these thoughts we grasp depends upon our spiritual awareness. a colour which is a language. then he told him the story. one suddenly get a understanding or sense of the tradition as mentioned earlier ‘safeguard yourselves or beware from the mu’min-believer's firasa. which turns into a colour.000 Khawatir (thoughts) pass through the heart and none of them can escape it and the whole combination of these thoughts is divided up into four categories. O commander of the faithful! I was a soothsayer in the days of jahiliyyah.” 17 . As our breath leaves our body it makes a signature. familiar and well-known. “You were true.000 Khawatir (thoughts) pass through the heart Every day 70. Every day 70. they are flying in the air and this language can be read by Saints and this is how the saints reads a person‘s heart as all your thoughts leave you mind and travel through your breath. The four categories are either Satanic thoughts (Shaytani). Just to mention a little more about firasa.” Upon sitting before Umar.” Sawad said. Sawad said.” but it was what he thought.000 times in 24 hours.It is well known that Abu Bakr As-Siddiq is considered to be the one with the greatest firasa in the ummah and Umar was the second.

The sahabah. fathers and mothers. they say: O Allah! Don't let them die before you guide them as you have guided us. The true firasah is obtained from life and from the light Allah grants to whom He wishes from amongst His true servants. and people of bad actions will take the shapes on bad forms spiritual and physically ones like animals. Its the same when perform Dhikr. Whenever they see a good deed they rejoice and are pleased. as this is what they have done to their souls corrupted them. and same is true with words of truth-Haqq and thoughts and the opposite is true with darkness. Therefore be wary of Allah and do not harm your dead. at which time they rejoice for the good deeds. but if they see evil they say: O Allah. “Is he who was dead and We gave him life and set for him a light whereby he can walk amongst men.' and the tradition 'Your deeds are shown to your relatives and ancestors among the dead. Shaytan running through our blood if our thoughts get out of control-(evil or anger) 18 .'). the actions of too much bad language transform into a Dog. in general. only saintly people can see the real form of peoples souls. We need to control these otherwise we are in danger of. Also the Nur of good actions will turn into Angels which smell like perfume and be a companion for the person in his grave. From many traditions it is known that. then. these forms are be seen on people‘s faces like Nur or darkness. and the latter increase the brightness and light of their faces.

So thorough Dhikr-remember of Allah we can reach ‘higher then angels or became worst then dogs’. Allah says. 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. So our actions and thoughts taken on form. such as lying and too much bad language. had the most accurate and sharpest firasah. while a person with bad actions will have his actions turned into a dark. ugly form that will smell worst then a dead donkey and haunt him in his grave. through each of our breaths and thoughts.

"This Order is built on breath." and thus the Naqshbandi's say breathe in with "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.‘ This is why we need to be mindful of breathing and thoughts through Dhikr.

That is because this Beauty has an exalted aspect and a related aspect.

Allah's Majesty acting upon us prevents us from unacceptable behaviour in the Divine Presence. and spiritual states. it has two modalities: awe and intimacy. So long as the divine disclosure is sound. though they believe that they are speaking of the first Majesty we mentioned. the Knowers have equated Majesty with Allah's overpowering force and Beauty with His mercy. The exalted aspect is called the Majesty of Beauty. On account of this. Majesty and Beauty are indeed two attributes of Allah and awe and intimacy two attributes of human beings. Therefore. to a certain extent things are just as they have said – that is. what has been spiritually disclosed to our colleagues is sound. For were one expansiveness to be met with another it would lead to unacceptable behaviour. Thus Majesty in Him is countered by intimacy in us so that we may keep our balance in contemplation and maintain a mental awareness of what we see. and when the souls of the Knowers witness Majesty they feel awe and diminution. Among us. and He is the Hearing.
