بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم The information on al-Asmaa-ul-Husnaa has been taken from notes made on a course by Ustadhah A. Ahmed (Zaynab Academy Online) in Ramadhaan of 2017 and 2018 Books used: “The Ninety-Nine Beautiful Names of God” by Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali رحمه الله - Translated by David B. Burrell and Nazih Daher PDF “Sharah Asmaul Husna” by Muhammad Hanif Abdul Majid - Jamiatul Uloom-ul-Islamia Binori Town, Karachi (Urdu) Read Online Introduction The aspect of research and observation is dominant in the nature of human beings and it is this characteristic which motivates him to observe and discover new things. The greatest Being, Allah جل جلاله Who created and nourished man by taking care of his nature and essential requirements and provided for him all types of blessings and resources, has a much greater right that His Ma’rifat (Gnosis/Knowledge/Recognition) is attained and inscribed on the heart. One way of attaining this Ma’rifat is the study of al-Asmaa-ul-Husnaa. The more a person attains Ma’rifat of Allah جل جلالهfrom the Qur’an and Ahadith of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, the stronger and deeper will be his trust in Allah جل جلاله It is usually observed that when a person is facing some difficulty/anxiety in his worldly affairs, he becomes distressed and exhausts himself running from place to place and person to person. In this situation if someone says, “I know so-and-so person and if I talk to him, he will help you out” the person will feel relief and have hope. If, instead of running from place to place and from person to person, this person developed this familiarisation with Allahجل جلاله, his attention will always be focused on Allah جل جلاله at the time of every difficulty and hardship. The servant will become shy to discuss his problems with others and will instead turn to and rely on Allah جل جلاله. He will realise that no matter who he approaches with his problems, that person will also have the means provided by Allah جل جلاله and therefore why then, should he himself not turn to Allahجل جلاله Who is the ultimate and true Nourisher and Provider? If this recognition of Allah جل جلاله is attained then Shirk will be eliminated from its base. To attain this Ma’rifat-e-Ilaahi everyone should call on the Almighty with His blessed names. Allahجل جلاله Himself says, وَلِلَّهِ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ فَادْعُوهُ بِهَا Allah has the Most Beautiful Names.
