what do you know about Islam Muslims and the One God


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.



 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:

The-Attributes-Sifat-of-Allah-1The Attributes (Sifāt) of Allāh: His Attributes are Dhātiyyah or Fi’liyyah or both.

Definitions: Sifāt: Attributes of Allah. Dhāt: The Self of Allah.

The categorisation of the Attributes of Allah is based on whether the Attributes are intrinsically bound to the Self (or Dhāt) of Allah or not bound intrinsically to the Self of Allah. So according to this, the Attributes are divided into three categories:

  1. Attributes ascribed to His Self (Sifāt Dhātiyyah).
  2. Attributes ascribed to His Actions (Sifāt Fi’liyyah).
  3. Attributes ascribed to both His Self and His Actions (Sifāt Dhātiyyah Fi’liyyah)
