99 Names of Allah with meaning in English, Urdu and English

In Islam, God is mainly referred to as Allah, the 99 names of Allah along with their benefits and meanings are listed below.

99 Names of Allah in English, Urdu and Arabic and their meanings.

To praise Him, to worship Him and to worship Him, the Qur’an and the Sunnah refer to Allah by many other names and other adjectives and attributes.

 There are usually 99 names of Allah that are regarded as attributes of Allah Almighty.

Ulemas generally admit that the names or attributes of Allah in Islam are cited according to a number of 99.

There is not a single list of the 99 names of Allah and their meanings and the one I present to you is the most frequently encountered.

This number of 99 names attributed to Allah is based on a hadith of the Prophet reported by Abu Hurayra:

“Certainly God has 99 names, one hundred minus one. Whoever lists them will enter Heaven”

 “Allah is the singular (witr) and without alter-ego and he loves and rewards naming these names one by one.”

(Boukhāri, volume 8, B.12, R.12, hadith “of the Prophet” of Abū Hurayra).

In addition to his name Allah, which means God, other names that can qualify as god are mentioned in the Koran, as well as in the aforementioned hadith reported by Abū Hurayra.

The 99 names of Allah are called in Arabic أسماء الله الحسنى ( Asma ‘Allah al-Ḥusná ), which means: The most beautiful names of God.

There are several versions of these lists of attributes because these 99 names of Allah have been taken from different passages of the Quran and hadiths.

It is generally accepted among some ulemas that Allah has more than 99 (ninety-nine) attributes or names , some of which are not known.

A hadith thus speaks of names of which Allah has reserved knowledge. 

Some Ulemas say that Mafhûm al-Mukhâlafah does not apply to the hadith of the ninety-nine (99) attributes, names or attributes cited to designate Allah.

In the sense that asserting that Allah has these 99 names and attributes should not imply that he does not have others.
