Wa lilahil asmaul husna, Allah's are the best names 7:180
Names help us to know who someone is and what they are like. When we hear a name, it makes us think of that person. A name like Mummy, will remind you of someone who loves you and looks after you, but a name like Frankenstein will probably remind you of someone scary!
Allah tells us in the Qur’an that He has Asmaul Husna, the Best names. Allah has 99 names, and each name, each Ism, is a quality, something that tells us about Allah and reminds us how amazing He is.
Allah is Ar-Rahman and Raheem, the one who is super kind to us and gives us so many blessings. Allah is As-Samee’, He hears everything and Allah is Al-Baseer, He sees everything.
The name Allah combines all these names together. So when we say Allah, we are being reminded about the very kind Allah who hears and sees everything we do and and gave us everything we have!
By learning the names of Allah, we can see how amazing Allah is and it helps us understand Him better too.
Each Ism is also like a Dua we can use to call Allah with.
