TAWHÎD AL-ASMA’ WAS-SIFAT (ISLÂMIC MONOTHEISM OF ALLÂH’S NAMES AND QUALITIES)

Tawhîd Al-Asma’ Was-Sifat (Islâmic Monotheism of Allâh’s Names and Qualities) is to perform Monotheism for Allâh in His Names and Descriptions, and this should happen by confirming what He has confirmed among Names and Descriptions for Himself in His Book, or what His Messenger ﷺ has confirmed to Him as well; without any Tahrif (distortion) or Ta’til (suspension), or Takyif (adaptation), or Tamthil (likening). And what follows are the Rules of Names and Qualities.

Fatwa:

 All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  is His slave and Messenger.

Different scholars  tried to determine the Names of Allah which are mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah . For instance, Shaykh Ibn 'Uthaymeen  stated 99 names which he extracted from the Quran and the Sunnah , and they are as follows:

512x512bb 1

In Surah Al-A’raf Ayah 180 Allah says:

وَلِلَّهِ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ فَادْعُوهُ بِهَا ۖ وَذَرُوا الَّذِينَ يُلْحِدُونَ فِي أَسْمَائِهِ ۚ سَيُجْزَوْنَ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ ‎﴿١٨٠﴾

“And to Allah belong the best names, so invoke Him by them. And leave [the company of] those who practice deviation concerning His names. They will be recompensed for what they have been doing.”

Hadith from Al-Bukhari #7392 which Abu Huraira Reports the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) as saying,

“Allah has ninety-nine Names, one-hundred less one; and he who memorized them all by heart will enter Paradise.” 

Below we put together a complete guide to learning the meaning and benefits of the 99 names of Allah. We also try to provide references to Qur’an verses and hadith which further exemplify these names.
