NAMES AND ATTRIBUTES OF ALLAH


One of the most important pillars of Tawheed (knowledge and belief 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, as they are part of the AQEEDAH and part of everyday IBADAH.

Qur’an

Allah orders us in His saying :

 

وَلِلّهِ الأَسْمَاء الْحُسْنَى فَادْعُوهُ بِهَا وَذَرُواْ الَّذِينَ يُلْحِدُونَ فِي أَسْمَآئِهِ سَيُجْزَوْنَ مَا كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُونَ

“ 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 wasallam) and his companions (radhiyaAllahu anhum ajma’in) and the pious predecessors.

 

Hadith

The importance of these Beautiful Names of Allah and their numbers ; is specified in the authentic ahadiths narrated that The Prophet (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) 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)

 

and another narration "Allah has ninety-nine names, one-hundred less one; and he who memorized them all by heart will enter Paradise." Sahih Al Bukhari 7392 (Vol 9:489)

الوِتْرُ

 

لم يرد الاسم في القرآن ولكن سماه به النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فيما رواه البخاري من حديث أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رضي الله عنه أنِه صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ:

( لِلَّهِ تِسْعَةٌ وَتِسْعُونَ اسْمًا ، مِائَةٌ إِلاَّ وَاحِدًا ، لاَ يَحْفَظُهَا أَحَدٌ إِلاَّ دَخَلَ الْجَنَّةَ ، وَهْوَ وَتْرٌ يُحِبُّ الْوَتْرَ

 

This name is not mentioned in the Qura’n , but the Messenger (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) named it : in what has been compiled by Al-Bukhari (in his saheeh) from the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah (radhiyaAllahu anhu) that he (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) said :

“ Allah has ninety-nine Names,  one hundred minus one, and whoever memorizes them (believes in their meanings, and acts accordingly) will enter Paradise; and Allah is Witr (one)and loves 'the witr' (i.e., odd numbers).” [Al-Bukhari : 6047]

 

Allah is AL-Witr (One)
27
الجَمِيلُ

 

ورد الاسم في صحيح مسلم من حديث عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مَسْعُودٍ رضي الله عنه أن النَّبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ: ( لاَ يَدْخُلُ الْجَنَّةَ مَنْ كَانَ فِي قَلْبِهِ مِثْقَالُ ذَرَّةٍ مِنْ كِبْرٍ ، قَالَ رَجُلٌ : إِنَّ الرَّجُلَ يُحِبُّ أَنْ يَكُونَ ثَوْبُهُ حَسَنًا وَنَعْلُهُ حَسَنَةً ، قَالَ : إِنَّ اللَّهَ جَمِيلٌ يُحِبُّ الْجَمَالَ ، الْكِبْرُ بَطَرُ الْحَقِّ وَغَمْطُ النَّاسِ

 

This name is mentioned in saheeh Muslim ,  from the hadeeth of Ibn Masu’d (radhiyaAllahu anhu) that the Messenger(sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) said :

“ He who has in his heart the weight of a mustard seed of prideshall not enter Paradise. A person (amongst his hearers) said: ‘Verily a person loves that his dress should be fine, and his shoes should be fine.’  He (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) remarked: ‘Verily, Allah is Gracefuland He loves Grace. prideis disdaining the truth (out of self-conceit) and contempt for the people.”  [Muslim: 91]

 

The Graceful
28
الحَيِيُّ

 

لم يرد الاسم في القرآن ولكن سماه به النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فيما رواه أبو داود وصححه الألباني من حديث يَعْلَى بن أمية رضي الله عنه: ( أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم رَأَى رَجُلاً يَغْتَسِلُ بِالْبَرَازِ بِلاَ إِزَارٍ فَصَعِدَ الْمِنْبَرَ فَحَمِدَ اللَّهَ وَأَثْنَى عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ صلى الله عليه وسلم : إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ حَيِىٌّ سِتِّيرٌ يُحِبُّ الْحَيَاءَ وَالسَّتْرَ فَإِذَا اغْتَسَلَ أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَسْتَتِرْ

 

This name is not mentioned in the Qura’n , but the Messenger (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) named it : in what has been compiled by Abu Dawuud and declared saheeh by al-Albanee .  from the hadeeth of Ya'la (radhiyaAllahu anhu) that:

The Apostle of Allah (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam)  saw a man washing in a public place without a lower garment. So he mounted the pulpit, praised and extolled Allah and then he (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) said: “ Allah Azza wa Jalla is ( Al – Hayyiyu)The One characterised by modesty and The One characterised by concealment. So when any of you washes, he should conceal himself.” [Saheeh abu dawud 3387]

 

The One Characterised by Modesty
29
السِّتيرُ

 

ورد الاسم في السنة مقرونا باسم الله الحيي ، وقد اشتهر اسم الستار بين الناس بدلا من الستير وهو خطأ لأنه لم يرد في القرآن أو السنة.

 

The name has been mentioned in the sunnah together with the preceeding name (Al-Hayiyyu) . And most people have confused/mixed the name as-sattar instead of As-Sitteer . And this is wrong as the name as-sattar is not established in the Qur’an nor in the sunnah.

 

رواه أبو داود وصححه الألباني من حديث يَعْلَى بن أمية رضي الله عنه:

 ( أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم رَأَى رَجُلاً يَغْتَسِلُ بِالْبَرَازِ بِلاَ إِزَارٍ فَصَعِدَ الْمِنْبَرَ فَحَمِدَ اللَّهَ وَأَثْنَى عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ صلى الله عليه وسلم : إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ حَيِىٌّسِتِّيرٌ يُحِبُّ الْحَيَاءَ وَالسَّتْرَ فَإِذَا اغْتَسَلَ أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَسْتَتِرْ )

As it has come reknown , in the saheeh of Al-Bukhari from the hadeeth of Abu Huraira (radhiyaAllahu anhu) that The Prophet (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) said :

"Allah said : 'The son of Adam tells a lie against Me,, though he hasn't the right to do so. He abuses me though he hasn't the right to do so. As for his telling a lie against Me, it is his saying that I will not recreate him as I created him for the first time. In fact, the first creation was not easier for Me than new creation. As for his abusing Me , it is his saying that Allah has begotten children, while I am The One , the Self-Sufficient Master Whom all creatures need , I beget not , nor was I begotten, and there is none like unto Me."

المُقَدِّمُ

 

لم يرد الاسم في القرآن ولكن سماه به النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ، كما جاء في الحديث المتفق عليه عند البخاري والمسلم من حديث ابْنَ عَبَّاسٍ رضي الله عنه أن النَّبِي صلى الله عليه وسلم كَانَ إِذَا قَامَ مِنَ اللَّيْلِ يَتَهَجَّدُ قَالَ :

  اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ قَيِّمُ السَّماَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ .. إلى أن قال : فَاغْفِرْ لِي مَا قَدَّمْتُ وَمَا أَخَّرْتُ ، وَمَا أَسْرَرْتُ وَمَا أَعْلَنْتُ ، أَنْتَالْمُقَدِّمُ وَأَنْتَ الْمُؤَخِّرُ ، لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ أَوْ لاَ إِلَهَ غَيْرُكَ



This name is not mentioned in the Qura’n , but the Messenger (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) named it : as it has come from the agreed upon hadeeth with Bukhari and Muslim from Ibn Abbas (radhiyaAllahu anhu) that When the Prophet got up at night to offer the Tahajjud prayer, he (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) used to say:

“ O Allah! All the praises are for you, You are the Holder of the Heavens and the Earth…… to when he said : ……Please forgive me my previous And future sins; And whatever I concealed or revealed You are The Bringer-Forward, and You are The Delayer ,There is none to be  worshipped but you or  there is no (true) god except You." [Bukhari 1069]

لم يرد الاسم في القرآن ولكن سماه به النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ، فقد ورد مع الاسم الذي تقدم في قوله صلى الله عليه وسلم: ( أَنْتَ الْمُقَدِّمُ وَأَنْتَ الْمُؤَخِّرُ )،

 

This name is not mentioned in the Qura’n , but the Messenger (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) named it . It has come together with the preceeding name (Al-Muqaddim) , in his (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) speech (du’aa) :

لم يرد الاسم في القرآن ولكن سماه به النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ، فقد ورد الاسم في صحيح السنة ففي سنن الترمذي وقال حسن صحيح وكذلك عند أبي داود وابن ماجه وأحمد وصححه الألباني جميعهم يروي عن أَنَسٍ رضي الله عنه أنه قَالَ:

 ( قَالَ النَّاسُ : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ غَلاَ السِّعْرُ فَسَعِّرْ لَنَا ، فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ: إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْمُسَعِّرُ الْقَابِضُ الْبَاسِطُ الرَّازِقُ ، وإني لأَرْجُو أَنْ أَلْقَي اللَّهَ وَلَيْسَ أَحَدٌ مِنْكُمْ يُطَالِبُنِي بِمَظْلَمَةٍ فِي دَمٍ وَلاَ مَالٍ )

 

This name is not mentioned in the Qura’n , but the Messenger (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) named it :  it has come from the authentic Sunnah, it is in the sunan of at-Tirmidhee and he said ‘hasan saheeh’ , and also from Abu Daawud , Ibn Majah , and Ahmad ; and shaykh Albanee authenticated all of these, they  naratted from Anas (radhiyaAllahu anhu) that  he said :

“ The people said : ‘ O Messenger of Allah , prices have shot up  , so fix prices for us.’

Thereupon the Apostle of Allah (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) said : ‘Allah is The one Who Raises and Increase & decreases things ( through His Will  e.g  prices , provision , life ), The One Who withholds , The One who gives lavishly and The One who sustains , and I hope that when I meet Allah , none of you will have any claim on me for an injustice regarding blood or property.” [ Abu Dawud : 3451 , at-Tirmidhee : 1314 , Ibn Majah : 2200 ]

 

The One Who Raises and Increases  & decreases (through His Will)
67
الْقَابِضُ

 

سماه به النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في الحديث الصحيح الذي سبق في اسم الله المسعر: ( إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْمُسَعِّرُالْقَابِضُ الْبَاسِطُ الرَّازِقُ

 

This name is not mentioned in the Qura’n , but the Messenger (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) named it  in the authentic hadeeth that has preceeded , in which is the name of Allah : Al – Musai’r :

 “ ….Allah is The one Who Raises and Increase & decreases things ( through His Will  e.g  prices ,provision , life), The One Who withholds, The One who gives lavishly and The One who sustains, and I hope that when I meet Allah, none of you will have any claim on me for an injustice regarding blood or property.”

وكذلك ورد الاسم في القرآن مقيدا في قول الله تعالى :

( قَالَ عِيسَي ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّنَا أَنْزِلْ عَلَيْنَا مَائِدَةً مِنَ السَّمَاءِ تَكُونُ لَنَا عِيداً لأَوَّلِنَا وَآخِرِنَا وَآيَةً مِنْكَ وَارْزُقْنَا وَأَنْتَ خَيْرُ الرَّازِقِينَ )            

 

And also this name is mentioned within the statement of Allah The Exalted  : “ 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), said: "O Allâh, our Lord! Send us from heaven a table spread (with food) that there may be for us - for the first and the last of us - a festival and a sign from You; and provide us sustenance, for You are The Best of sustainers." [Al–Maidah: 114]

 }يَحْشُرُ اللَّهُ الْعِبَادَ فَيُنَادِيهِمْ بِصَوْتٍ يَسْمَعُهُ مَنْ بَعُدَ كَمَا يَسْمَعُهُ مَنْ قَرُبَ ، أَنَا الْمَلِكُ أَنَا الدَّيَّانُ {

 

This name is not mentioned in the Qura’n , but the Messenger (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) named it :  as in Al- Bukhaaree , naratted from Jabeer from the hadeeth of Abdullaah ibn Unays (radhiyaAllahu anhum) that  he said : I heard the Messenger (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) say :

“ Allah will gather the people and call them with a Voice which will be heard by those who will be far away and those who will be near ; By  saying : ‘ I am Al –Maalik (The King) , I am Ad-Dayyaan ( The One who judges people for their deeds after calling them to account .)” [Bukhari : book of tawheed : explanation of the statement of Allah ‘..and no intercession will help them …’  :  6/2719]

“ Verily ! As-Safâ and Al-Marwah (two mountains in Makkah) are of the Symbols of Allâh. So it is not a sin on him who perform Hajj or 'Umrah (pilgrimage) of the House (the Ka'bah at Makkah) to perform the going (Tawâf) between them (As-Safâ and Al-Marwah). And whoever does good voluntarily, then verily, Allâh is All-Recogniser, All-Knower.” [Al–Baqarah: 158]

( اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِأَنَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدَ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَالْمَنَّانُبَدِيعُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ يَا ذَا الْجَلاَلِ وَالإِكْرَامِ يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّومُ ، فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم : لَقَدْ دَعَا اللَّهَ بِاسْمِهِ الْعَظِيمِ الَّذِي إِذَا دُعِيَ بِهِ أَجَابَ وَإِذَا سُئِلَ بِهِ أَعْطَى )

 

This name AL – MANNAAN is not mentioned in the Qura’n , but it  is mentioned in the sunnah:  in the sunan of Abu Daawud , and authenticated by shaykh Albanee from the hadeeth of Anas (radhiyaAllahu anhu) that  he said : we were sitting with the Messenger (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) and another men was praying and then he supplicated :

"O Allah! Indeed, I ask of You, by the fact that to You belongs all Praise; there is no (true) god except You, [You alone, You have no partners;] The Bestower of Favours; [O] Originator of the Heavens and the Earth; O One that is Full of Majesty and Honour; O Living One, O Eternal One; [indeed I ask of You] [the Garden, and I seek refuge with You from the Fire].

 

So the Prophet (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) said to his Companions,‘Do you know with what he has supplicated?’  They said, "Allah and His Messenger know best." He (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) said,‘By Him in Whose Hand is my soul, he has supplicated Allah with His Mighty (in one narration: Mightiest) name, with which if He is supplicated, He answers, and with which if He is asked, He gives.” [Saheeh Abu daawud 1325]

}مَنْ يُرِدِ اللهُ بِهِ خَيْرًا يُفَقِّهْهُ في الدِّينِ، وَاللهُ الْمُعْطِي وَأَنَا الْقَاسِمُ، وَلاَ تَزَالُ هَذِهِ الأُمَّةُ ظَاهِرِينَ عَلَى مَنْ خَالَفَهُمْ حَتَّى يَأْتِي أَمْرُ اللهِ وَهُمْ ظَاهِرُونَ{

 

with Al- Bukharee from the hadeeth of Muawiya bin Abi Sufyan (radhiyaAllahu anhum) that  Allah's Apostle (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) said :

" If Allah wants to do good for somebody, he makes him comprehend the Religion (i.e. Islam), and Allah is The Giver and I am Al-Qasim (i.e. the distributor),and this (Muslim) nation will remain victorious over their opponents ,till Allah's Order (The last day) comes and they will still be victorious " [Bukhari : book of One-fifth of Booty to the Cause of Allah (Khumus) : 3/1143]

 

The Giver

المُقِيتُ

 

}  مَنْ يَشْفَعْ شَفَاعَةً حَسَنَةً يَكُنْ لَهُ نَصِيبٌ مِنْهَا وَمَنْ يَشْفَعْ شَفَاعَةً سَيِّئَةً يَكُنْ لَهُ كِفْلٌ مِنْهَا وَكَانَ اللهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ مُقِيتاً { 

 

The speech of The Most Exalted :

“ Whosoever intercedes for a good cause will have the reward thereof, and whosoever intercedes for an evil cause will have a share in its burden. And Allâh is Ever All-Able to do (and also an All-Witness to) everything.” [An-Nisaa:85] 

Shaykh Abdur-Rahmaan Nasir Sa’di (rahimahullah) explained this Name ofAllah  :

 Al – Muqeet  : as meaningThe One who provides everything that is in existence ; with what would strengthen it, Who provides it with it's nourishment and directs it howsoever He Wills in accordance to His Wisdom and Praise.

THE MOST ABLE/ THE POWERFUL/ THE SUSTAINER

السَّيدُ

 

ثبت اسم الله السيد في السنة، فقد سماه به النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم  ، ففي سنن أبي داود وصححه الشيخ الألباني من حديث عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ الشِّخِّيرِ رضي الله عنه  قالَ:

 ( انْطَلَقْتُ في وَفْدِ بَنِي عَامِرٍ إِلَى رَسُولِ الله  صلى الله عليه وسلم  فَقُلنا: أَنْتَ سَيِّدُنا، فقَالَ: السَّيِّدُ الله، قُلْنا: وَأَفْضَلُنا فَضْلاً وَأَعْظَمُنَا طَوْلاً، فَقَالَ: قُولُوا بِقَوْلِكم أَوْ بَعْضِ قَوْلِكمُ وَلاَ يَسْتَجْرِيَنَّكمْ الشَّيْطَانُ )

 

This name of Allah ; AL – SAYYID is established in the sunnah : as in the sunan of Abu Daawud , and authenticated by shaykh Albanee from the hadeeth of Abdullaah ibn Shikhkheer (radhiyaAllahu anhu) that he said :

" I went with a delegation of Banu `Amir to the prophet of Allah (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) and we said (to him): "You are our Sayyid (Master)."

 He (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) replied :

"As-Sayyid ( The Master ) is Allah ."  We said :"And you are the most excellent and superior of us." He(sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) answered :"Say what you have to say, or part of what you have to say and do not let Satan make you get carried away." [Saheeh Abu Daawud : 4021]

  في صحيح مسلم من حديث أَبِى هُرَيْرَةَ رضي الله عنه  أن رَسُول اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم  قال:

}أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّ اللهَ طَيِّبٌ لاَ يَقْبَلُ إِلاَّ طَيِّبًا{

 

In saheeh Muslim , from the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah (radhiyaAllahu anhu) that the prophet of Allah (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) said :

الحَكَمُ

 

ورد في الحديث الذي رواه أبو داود وصححه الألباني  ,من حديث شُرَيْحٍ عَنْ أَبِيهِ هَانِئٍ رضي الله عنه  :

 ( أَنَّهُ لَمَّا وَفَدَ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم مَعَ قَوْمِهِ سَمِعَهُمْ يَكْنُونَهُ بِأَبِي الْحَكَمِ فَدَعَاهُ رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ: إِنَّ اللهَ هُوَ الْحَكَمُ وَإِلَيْهِ الْحُكْمُ فَلِمَ تُكْنَى أَبَا الْحَكَمِ؟ فَقَالَ: إِنَّ قَوْمِي إِذَا اخْتَلَفُوا فِي شَيءٍ أَتَوْنِي فَحَكَمْتُ بَيْنَهُمْ فَرَضِي كِلاَ الْفَرِيقَيْنِ، فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم : مَا أَحْسَنَ هَذَا، فَمَا لَكَ مِنَ الْوَلَدِ؟ قَالَ: لِي شُرَيْحٌ وَمُسْلِمٌ وَعَبْدُ اللهِ، قَالَ: فَمَنْ أَكْبَرُهُمْ؟ قُلْتُ: شُرَيْحٌ قَالَ: فَأَنْتَ أَبُو شُرَيْحٍ )

 

It  is mentioned in the sunan of Abu Daawud , and authenticated by shaykh Albanee from the hadeeth of Shurayh  from his father Hani ibn Yazid (radhiyaAllahu anhum) :

that When Hani went with his people in a deputation to the Apostle of Allah (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam), he (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) heard them calling him (hani) by his kunyah (nickname), AbulHakam.

So the Apostle of Allah (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) called him and said : “Allah is The Judge ( Al-Hakam ), and to Him belongs  The Judgment. Why are you given the kunyah Abul Hakam?”

He replied : When my people disagree about a matter , they come to me , and I decide between them, and both parties are satisfied with my decision.

So He (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) said : ‘How good this is ! What children have you ? He replied : ‘ I have Shurayh , Muslim and Abdullah.’  He (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) asked : ‘ Who is the oldest of them?’  I replied : Shurayh. He (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) said: ‘Then you are Abu Shurayh.” [Saheeh Abu Daawud : 4145]
