 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:


How To Attain the Love of Allah

Everything that pleases Allah is a means of attaining His love. The following are some of the ways in which we can attain the love of Allah:

1) Reciting the Qur’ān with tadabbur (reflection).

2) Drawing close to Allah by doing nafl (voluntary) actions after the farḍ (obligatory) ones, as Allah says in a ḥadīth qudsī, “My servant continues to draw closer to me with voluntary acts until I love Him” (Bukhārī).

3) Constantly remembering Allah with the tongue, the heart, and your actions. How much you remember Allah will indicate how much you love Him.

4) Preferring Allah’s love over your own love when your desire overcomes you.

5) Reflecting on the Names and Attributes of Allah, and immersing oneself in attaining the maʿrifah (deep awareness) of Allah.


Ibn al-Qayyim wrote, “The key to the daʿwah of the Messengers and the essence of their Message, is knowing Allah through His Names, His Attributes, and His Actions. This is the foundation on which the rest of the Message, from beginning to end, is based upon.”

Allah said, “To Allah Alone belong the most Beautiful Names, so call on Him by them.” (7:180)

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Indeed Allah has 99 Names; whoever preserves them will enter Paradise.” (Muslim)

Preserving them includes:


Praise be to Allah.

Knowing the Beautiful Names of Allaah is very important indeed, for the following reasons:

  1. Knowledge of Allaah and His Names and Attributes is the noblest and best of all knowledge, because the level of honour of any kind of knowledge has to do with the object of knowledge, and the object of knowledge in this case is Allaah, may He be glorified and exalted, through His Names, Attributes and Deeds. Occupying oneself with seeking this knowledge and studying it properly is the pursuit of the highest objective, and acquiring this knowledge is one of the best gifts a person may be given. Because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) explained it very clearly and was very keen to do so, the Sahaabah never disputed in this matter as they did over some of the rulings (ahkaam).

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.
