The Importance and Significance of Knowing Allah’s Names.

Our beloved Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said the following about the Significance of Knowing Allah’s Names: “Allah has 99 names. Whoever memorizes and embraces these qualities will enter heaven”

Allah says in the Holy Quran “The most beautiful names belong to Allah: so call on Him by them, but shun such men as use profanity in His names: for what they do, they will soon be requited” (Surah al-Araf, 180).

“Allah – there is no deity except Him. To Him belong the best names.” (Quran 20:8)

“He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor, the Fashioner; to Him belong the best names.” (Quran 59:24)

As Muslims we recite Allah names daily for its many benefits, one of which is that it brings us closer to Allah because when we understand the meaning of each name, we learn about him and his Attributes. He’s the Rahman, He who wills goodness and mercy for all His creatures.  

Understanding the Meaning and Significance of “Allah”.

The Arabic word “Allah” means ‘The Deity’ or ‘The God’ in English, it’s used to refer to our one and only Creator. If a person recites the name Allah 1000 times every day his faith will become stronger and all the doubts and uncertainties will go away.
