Allah says in the Quran:
And to Allah belong the best names, so invoke Him by them.. (Quran 7:180)
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)
Muslims know their Creator through the names and attributes he has revealed in the Quran. We are urged to contemplate and call on the Creator with a name or attribute based on the specific care or need that we have. For example, if we are need of God's care for believers we call upon him with the name The Cherisher ( Rubb which means the giver of care, security or cherisher). Another Example is to call upon the Creator as Al Quddus (The Holy):
"God’s name Al-Quddoos (The Holy) indicates the One Who is Blessed and Pure. The angels sanctify Him, and He is praised for His virtues and goodness. God is The Holy because He is far above having any opposites, rivals, partner or son. He is perfect, having no faults or shortcomings. He is far above anything being near Him or like Him in any aspect."
I will post 99 of God's infinite names and attributes, please note, there are more attributes in the Quran and sunnah .We only use attributes and names that are in the Quran and sunnah alone. We do not make up our own names and attributes and would never call the Creator in anything except with His terminology.
There is no more noble knowledge than to learn who the Creator is and to worship and praise him .
I will post the name or attribute, a description and a video in the next few weeks and months.May we increase in our love of Allah and May this knowledge be beneficial to us . In sha Allah. God willing!
May we be of those who turn to him always in our efforts to fulfil his purpose for us. He is the one who is worshipped and the one who deserves to be worshipped!
Al-Rahman (the Most Gracious), al-Raheem (the Most Merciful), al-Barr (the Source of Goodness), al-Kareem (the Most Generous), al-Jawaad (the Generous), al-Ra’oof (the Compassionate), al-Wahhaab (the Bestower).
“And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to God so call on Him by them...” (Quran 7:180)
And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allah, so call on Him by them, and leave the company of those who belie or deny (or utter impious speech against) His Names.” (Quran 7:180)
“… And who is better in judgement than God for a people who have firm Faith.” (Quran 5:50)
“God will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection about that wherein you used to differ.” (Quran 22:69)
“… There is nothing like unto Him…” (Quran 42:11)
“And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.” (Quran 112:4)
Everyone is welcome to check out this thread but please keep in mind that it is thread for consideration, contemplation and not for contention. kindly come in peace and depart in peace.
