Know Allah (SWT)

Get to know Allah (swt).

There are many ways we can familiarize ourselves with The Almighty Allah (swt). But, one of the great ways we can get to know Allah (swt) is through his 99 beautiful names.

These beautiful 99 names not only serve as a beautiful way to get to know Allah (swt), but also as a way to enter paradise.

As stated in a hadith,

Narrated Abu Huraira: Prophet Muhammad SAW said, “Allah has ninety-nine
names, i.e. one-hundred minus one, and whoever knows them will go to
Paradise.”
(Sahih Al-Bukhari 50:894)

So, everyone should try their best to remember or even memorize these 99 names of Allah (swt)

Further on, when we are making dua to Allah (swt), or calling him,we should call him by his beautiful names.

As stated in the Quran,

“And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allâh, so call on Him by them, ……..”
(Surat Al-A’raf 7:180)
