Asma ul Husna

There is a common misconception that there are only 99 names of Allah.  While there is a famous hadith mentioning those names, it does not specifically state what those names are.  In fact there are many more than 99 names for Allah, swt.  Various lists exist of sets of 99 names.  Amanah Sisters have decided to only study names which come in either the Quran or Sunnah.  


Below are two tables to help us keep track of our Asma ul Husna Project.
 
  • Table 1 is a comprehensive list of Allah’s Most Beautiful Names.  It will be continuously updated (in sha Allah) as we add or remove names based on our criteria (must be located in The Quran or Sunnah).  Highlighted in light blue are the names that have been presented. Highlighted in light pink are names that have been reserved.  


  • Table 2 containing a list of links useful for researching Allah's names.
