The 99 Names of God


And God’s alone are the attributes of perfection; invoke Him, then, by these, and stand aloof from all who distort the meaning of His attributes.
Al A’Raf 7:180, tr. Asad


Say: “Invoke God, or invoke the Most Gracious:
by whichever name you invoke Him,
He is always the One — for His are all the attributes of perfection.”
Al Isra 17:110, tr. Asad


Allah is He, other than Whom there is no other god;
Who knows both what is hidden and what can be witnessed;
He is the Most Compassionate and Merciful.
Allah is He, other than Whom there is no other god;
the Sovereign, the One, the Source of Peace,
the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of Security,
the Exalted, the Compelling, the Supreme.
Glory be to God, beyond any associations.
He is Allah, the Creator, the Evolver, the Bestower of Form.
To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names:
Whatever exists in heaven and earth declares His Praise and Glory.
And He is Exalted in Power, the Wise.
Al Hashr 59:22, tr. Helminski
