99 NAMES AND ATTRIBUTES OF ALLAH
The most important part of Tawheed (knowledge and belief of oneness of Allah) is the knowledge of the 99 beautiful names of Allah, and also the attributes of Allah. This is because The Legislation of Islam directs every Muslim to know these names and attributes, as they are part of the AQEEDAH and part of everyday IBADAH.
Allah ordered us in His saying : “ 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.” Qur’an.surah Aaraaf 7:180
Thus the ayath clearly displays :
1. The obligation of worship through the Most Beautiful Names of Allah
2. The obligation of abandoning those who believe and indulge in :
- tahreef ( to change or distort the wording of Allah’s name or attribute)
- tamtheel / tashbeeh (to claim Allah’s Attributes resemble the attributes of the creation),
- ta’teel (denying any of Allah’s attributes)
- ta’weel (to give a figurative explanation of any of Allah’s Attributes).
And this is the backbone of the Aqeedah (creed) of the Prophet (SallahAllahu alayhi wasSallam) and his companions (RadhiyaAllahu anhum ajma’in) and the pious predecessors.
Prophet (SallahAllahu alayhi wasSallam) said : “ Allah has ninety-nine names, i.e., one hundred minus one, and whoever believes in their meanings and acts accordingly, will enter Paradise..”
Sahih Al Bukhari 6410 (Vol 8:419)
