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.

Say, "He is the Most Merciful; we have believed in Him, and upon Him we have relied. And you will [come to] know who it is that is in clear error." (Quran 67:29)

قُلْ هُوَ الرَّحْمَٰنُ آمَنَّا بِهِ وَعَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْنَا ۖ فَسَتَعْلَمُونَ مَنْ هُوَ فِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ ‎﴿٢٩﴾‏

And we will never associate with our Lord anyone. And [it teaches] that exalted is the nobleness of our Lord (Quran 72:1-3)

 قُلْ أُوحِيَ إِلَيَّ أَنَّهُ اسْتَمَعَ نَفَرٌ مِّنَ الْجِنِّ فَقَالُوا إِنَّا سَمِعْنَا قُرْآنًا عَجَبًا ‎﴿١﴾‏ يَهْدِي إِلَى الرُّشْدِ فَآمَنَّا بِهِ ۖ وَلَن نُّشْرِكَ بِرَبِّنَا أَحَدًا ‎﴿٢﴾‏ وَأَنَّهُ تَعَالَىٰ جَدُّ رَبِّنَا مَا اتَّخَذَ صَاحِبَةً وَلَا وَلَدًا ‎﴿٣﴾‏

الصَّبُورُ

AS-SABUR

AsSabur

The Patient, The One who does not quickly punish the sinners.

Allah is As-Sabur, The One who is most patient and enduring. He does not act in a hastily manner but rather waits until the proper time. He does not punish the disobedient and unbelievers, he allows time for them to repent or an opportunity to take the right path.

Mentions From The Quran & Hadith
