Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm currently reading this book...and I highly recommend it. A simplistic and inspiring reading it is.

What this book is about: The significance of each of the 99 names of Allah swt. This book goes a step beyond a mere definition, but rather expounds on how each name is an attribute of Allah and thereby a reflection on to us. Prophet Adam was first taught and bestowed upon all of Allah's names. We, as Prophet Adam's descendants, are an image of Allah swt's attributes. Knowing each of the Names helps us to learn ourselves. It is said in the Quran Majeed that our purpose of our lives here on earth is to KNOW/WORSHIP/SERVE (synonyms in the Arabic term) Allah swt - and to know ourselves is to know Allah swt through His names since we reflect those 99 attributes. Gives new meaning to the 'God-within'. We, as human beings, are limited in our faculties. Repeating and remembering (dhikr) an attribute 'activates' and enhances that quality from within since we are attuning to that specific name of Allah swt's - and thus balancing and healing our souls.

Format: Paperback
This book is amazing for all levels of faith. For those who are God conscious, this book allows you to reflect on the many ways our creator impacts us and the things around us. Despite the good and bad around us, the many names that are given to God allow us to get to know him and relect on its meanings. This book gives one a clear, concise, yet dynamic impact into the many personalities of our lord and creator. It also allows one to reflect on your own personal relationship with God and allows you to appreciate the diversity of how one chooses to have a relationship with it's creator. A must have book for one who is trying to discover having a relationahip with God. How can you love and appreciate something that you know nothing about? Isn't that blind following?

Format: Paperback
Here are the "99 Names" or attributes by which God's presence is manifested in the world, and by which God completes the spiritual life of human beings. These are recited while moving along the "rosary beads" of Muslims. They are also a source for naming children in Muslim families - using the feminine form of the name for a girl, the masculine form for a boy. . . often adding Abd- as a preface making it literally "the servant of God" since one of God's "names" is being intoned. Also included are the 2301 traditional names or qualities of the Prophet Muhammad. All are beautifully calligraphed in Arabic. Foreword by William Chitick.

Teachers/Librarians - suitable for 7th grade to Adult - Social Studies/Humanities.
Teachers - have students, working in groups to choose a half/dozen names from the list that they like. What qualities are expressed in these names? What can they discern about Muslim views of God?
