By: Khan, Kamillah
The knowledge concerning Allah the Almighty is the most exalted of all knowledge. We can know Him and draw closer to Him by knowing His Beautiful Names. These Names describe His Oneness, Existence and Perfection. They describe His living attributes of pure perfection. Sister Kamillah has written a most beautiful book wherein she describes the 99 names of Allah from the texts of the Quran and the Sunna. She begins by discussing the correct belief in the Names of Allah. She continues by describing how the Names of Allah are vast of which 99 have been revealed. She describes a methodology through which these 99 names of Allah are identified. She then describes each name of Allah in detail including its transliteration, translation, meaning, remembrance and reference. She concludes the book by reminding us how we should invoke our Creator by His Names for this is the reason why they were revealed: so that we may know Allah by His beautiful Names.
