Asma'ul-Husna: The 99 Beautiful Names of Allah by M.R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen
Beautifully illustrated with Arabic calligraphy, this book reveals the inner meaning of the 99 attributes or duties of Allah (God).
In the Islamic tradition, there are 99 divine names, or attributes of Allah, such as Ya Jabar, The Repairer; Ya Wadud, The Loving; and Ya Waliy, The Nearest Friend. In this wondrous explanation of the 99 beautiful names, each is written in Arabic with English transliterations for ease of pronunciation, and English translations that probe the depth of meaning within each name.
M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.) explains how God carries out his 99 virtuous duties, and asks that human beings contemplate the nature of God, praise God, and become living examples of His 99 qualities and actions.
