He is Allah
The Number of the Divine Names of Allah
Allah has many names, some said they are three hundred,some said one thousand and one, and others said they are one hundred andtwenty four thousand, which is the same number as the Apostles; it wasalso said that they are uncountable. The most acceptable is what camein the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad, Allah’s Prayers and Peace be upon him, he said, “Allah hasninety nine names; one hundred less one. He who memorizes them enters Paradise”(HADITH).
These names are mentioned in the Hadith in the order that we wrote in this book. Some of these names are mentioned in the Qur’an, and some are not. On the other hand, there are names that are mentioned in the Qur’an but not mentioned in the Hadith. If we count all the names that could be stated as descriptions to Allah, the number of names would be uncountable.
