  1. In reading A Shi'ite Anthology, I get the impression that Allah's Oneness transcends attributes and names, but the Sunni tradition lists 99 names of Allah. I am sure that many of these names are found in the Qur'an, for example, ar-Rahman and ar-Raheem. Does this concept of 99 names of Allah exist in Shi'ia teachings? I know that Allah is beyond our comprehension, but He has described Himself in terms that we have some semblance of understanding as humans else the words would be meaningless. Do these various names give us some comprehension of the Uncomprehendable and Incomparable One?
  2. Salam, I am expecting and I read somewhere that Insiya is a laqab of Bibi Fatima (SA). I cannot find that website now, it had full detail of how to spell it in arabic and what it means etc. Can anyone of you please let me know the above details and give me reference if it is possible. Thanks!
  3. Here is some dhikr of names of Allah certain amount of times to attain for example piouty, rizq, good manners etc. It is writen in the beginning of the link below but I don't understand really if it from imam Ali (as). Are there any other ahadith from Ahlulbayt about saying for example al-Fa'tiru 290 times everyday and a difficult will be easy or some other name of Allah certain times and corresponding benefit? https://www.al-islam.org/qunut-talib-hussain-zaidi/part-3-dhikr-beautiful-names-Allah

  5. Salamun Alaykum brothers and sisters, My wife is expecting our second child, and I have put in many hours thinking of names. The ultrasound shows it may be a girl "most likely". My wife is totally unsure of what to name her, infact she has also thought of many names however she just seems like she is overwhelmed at the moment with the pregnancy so I try and help make suggestions and usually we build from whatever she likes. We named our first child (daughter) Kawthar. So far we have shortened the long list down to a few choices given that my wife is in her 8th month. For arguments sake we have settled on girls names for the time being and if it is a boy we have a few suitable names we like. If our child is a girl we like: 1. BILQIS (The Queen of Sheba) mentioned in the Qur'an in Surah An-Naml 2. YAQEEN meaning certainty, lack of doubt, belief, faith. This choice seems more like a boys name but I wanted to hear input I guess of what everyone thinks. I personally think Yaqeen can be a unisex name like safa or noor. *Let me know what you think about this* 3. IZDIHAR meaning blossoming, derives from Zahra. 4. TASNIM meaning fountain or spring in paradise I Surah Al-Mutaffifin Please let me know what you all think. Also, we are open to suggestions. JazakumAllah Khair. H.
  6. My question is what are the names of the special Angels associated with the Prophets (As) and what were/are their specific roles. ‏ ‏جزاك الله خير
  7. If I were to formally revert (take Shahadah with witnesses) and I adopted and Islamic name, as my first and middle names are not permitted as per my understanding, what would I do regarding my father's name as his name is not permitted either? I did some research and read that it is permissible to keep the name of your father (and even commanded strongly) if his name is haram/pagan in origin. Other information has stated that it can be changed to my grandfather's name or that I should just add a descriptor of one of the attributes of Allah to it. Some have even said I should not change it at all. Can anyone help with this? It would be much appreciated, Thank you.
  8. Names of Partners beside Allah: ١٠_٦٦ أَلَآ إِنَّ لِلَّهِ مَن فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَمَن فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ ۗ وَمَا يَتَّبِعُ ٱلَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ شُرَكَآءَ ۚ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا ٱلظَّنَّ وَإِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا يَخْرُصُونَ 010:066 Look! To Allah indeed belongs whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth. What do they pursue who invoke partners besides Allah? They merely follow conjectures and they just make surmises. ٦_١٠٠ وَجَعَلُوا۟ لِلَّهِ شُرَكَآءَ ٱلْجِنَّ وَخَلَقَهُمْ ۖ وَخَرَقُوا۟ لَهُۥ بَنِينَ وَبَنَٰتٍۭ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍۢ ۚ سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ عَمَّا يَصِفُونَ 006:100 They make the jinn partners of Allah, though He has created them, and carve out sons and daughters for Him, without any knowledge. Immaculate is He and exalted above what they allege [concerning Him]! The jinns are partners to Allah swt. Quran mentions about the Prophet: saww قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ ٱللَّهَ فَٱتَّبِعُونِى يُحْبِبْكُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌۭ رَّحِيمٌۭ قُلْ أَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلرَّسُولَ ۖ فَإِن تَوَلَّوْا۟ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ 003:031 Say, ‘If you love Allah, then follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, and Allah is all-forgiving, all-merciful.’ 003:032 Say, ‘Obey Allah and the Messenger.’ But if they turn away, indeed Allah does not like the faithless. The Prophet is to be OBEYED unconditionally to get Allah’s love. Allah swt praises the prophet with the following words: وَٱلنَّجْمِ إِذَا هَوَىٰ ،مَا ضَلَّ صَاحِبُكُمْ وَمَا غَوَىٰ، وَمَا يَنطِقُ عَنِ ٱلْهَوَىٰٓ، إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا وَحْىٌۭ يُوحَىٰ 053:001 In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful. By the star when it sets: 053:002 your companion has neither gone astray, nor amiss. 053:003 Nor does he speak out of [his own] desire: 053:004 it is just a revelation that is revealed [to him], Do not invoke any God / Illah for worship beside Allah: ١٨_١٤ وَرَبَطْنَا عَلَىٰ قُلُوبِهِمْ إِذْ قَامُوا۟ فَقَالُوا۟ رَبُّنَا رَبُّ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ لَن نَّدْعُوَا۟ مِن دُونِهِۦٓ إِلَٰهًۭا ۖ لَّقَدْ قُلْنَآ إِذًۭا شَطَطًا 018:014 and fortified their hearts, when they stood up and said, ‘Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth. We will never invoke any god besides Him, for then we shall certainly have said an atrocious lie. ٢٨_٨٨وَلَا تَدْعُ مَعَ ٱللَّهِ إِلَٰهًا ءَاخَرَ ۘ لَآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۚ كُلُّ شَىْءٍ هَالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُۥ ۚ لَهُ ٱلْحُكْمُ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ 028:088 And do not invoke another god besides Allah; there is no god except Him. Everything is to perish except His Face. All judgement belongs to Him, and to Him you will be brought back. Auliya (not chosen by Allah) are Partners to Allah: إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ تَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ عِبَادٌ أَمْثَالُكُمْ ۖ فَٱدْعُوهُمْ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا۟ لَكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ صَٰدِقِينَ 007:194 Indeed, those you [polytheists] call upon besides Allah are servants like you. So call upon them and let them respond to you, if you should be truthful. أَلَهُمْ أَرْجُلٌۭ يَمْشُونَ بِهَآ ۖ أَمْ لَهُمْ أَيْدٍۢ يَبْطِشُونَ بِهَآ ۖ أَمْ لَهُمْ أَعْيُنٌۭ يُبْصِرُونَ بِهَآ ۖ أَمْ لَهُمْ ءَاذَانٌۭ يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا ۗ قُلِ ٱدْعُوا۟ شُرَكَآءَكُمْ ثُمَّ كِيدُونِ فَلَا تُنظِرُونِ 007:195 Do they have feet by which they walk? Or do they have hands by which they strike? Or do they have eyes by which they see? Or do they have ears by which they hear? Say, [O Muhammad], "Call your 'partners' and then conspire against me and give me no respite. قُلْ مَن رَّبُّ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ قُلِ ٱللَّهُ ۚ قُلْ أَفَٱتَّخَذْتُم مِّن دُونِهِۦٓ أَوْلِيَآءَ لَا يَمْلِكُونَ لِأَنفُسِهِمْ نَفْعًۭا وَلَا ضَرًّۭا ۚ قُلْ هَلْ يَسْتَوِى ٱلْأَعْمَىٰ وَٱلْبَصِيرُ أَمْ هَلْ تَسْتَوِى ٱلظُّلُمَٰتُ وَٱلنُّورُ ۗ أَمْ جَعَلُوا۟ لِلَّهِ شُرَكَآءَ خَلَقُوا۟ كَخَلْقِهِۦ فَتَشَٰبَهَ ٱلْخَلْقُ عَلَيْهِمْ ۚ قُلِ ٱللَّهُ خَٰلِقُ كُلِّ شَىْءٍۢ وَهُوَ ٱلْوَٰحِدُ ٱلْقَهَّٰرُ 013:016 Say, ‘Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth?’ Say, ‘Allah!’ Say, ‘Have you then taken others besides Him for guardians, who have no control over their own benefit or harm?’ Say, ‘Are the blind one and the seer equal? Are darkness and light equal?’ Have they set up for Allah partners who have created like His creation, so that the creations seemed confusable to them? Say, ‘Allah is the creator of all things, and He is the One and the All-paramount.’ مَثَلُ الَّذِيْنَ اتَّخَذُوْا مِنْ دُوْنِ اللّٰهِ اَوْلِيَاۗءَ كَمَثَلِ الْعَنْكَبُوْتِ ښ اِتَّخَذَتْ بَيْتًا ۭ وَاِنَّ اَوْهَنَ الْبُيُوْتِ لَبَيْتُ الْعَنْكَبُوْتِ ۘ لَوْ كَانُوْا يَعْلَمُوْنَ 41؀29 029:041 The parable of those who take guardians (Auliya) instead of Allah is that of the spider that takes a home, and indeed the frailest of homes is the home of a spider, had they known! وَاِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلٰۗىِٕكَةِ اسْجُدُوْا لِاٰدَمَ فَسَجَدُوْٓا اِلَّآ اِبْلِيْسَ ۭ كَانَ مِنَ الْجِنِّ فَفَسَقَ عَنْ اَمْرِ رَبِّهٖ ۭ اَفَتَتَّخِذُوْنَهٗ وَذُرِّيَّتَهٗٓ اَوْلِيَاۗءَ مِنْ دُوْنِيْ وَهُمْ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ ۭ بِئْسَ لِلظّٰلِمِيْنَ بَدَلًا And recall when We said to the angels: "Prostrate yourselves before Adam"; all of them fell prostrate, except Iblis. He was of the jinn and so disobeyed the command of his Lord. Will you, then, take him and his progeny as your Guardians rather than Me although they are your open enemies? What an evil substitute are these wrong-doers taking ) 18-50( ! Auliya Chosen by Allah swt: اِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ اللّٰهُ وَرَسُوْلُهٗ وَالَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوا الَّذِيْنَ يُقِيْمُوْنَ الصَّلٰوةَ وَيُؤْتُوْنَ الزَّكٰوةَ وَهُمْ رٰكِعُوْنَ 55؀5 وَمَنْ يَّتَوَلَّ اللّٰهَ وَرَسُوْلَهٗ وَالَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْا فَاِنَّ حِزْبَ اللّٰهِ هُمُ الْغٰلِبُوْنَ 56؀ۧ5 Only Allah, His Messenger, and those who believe and who establish Prayer, pay Zakah, and bow (before Allah) are your allies (Wali). All those who take Allah and His Messenger and those who believe as their Allies (Wali), should remember that the party of Allah will be triumphant. (5:55, 56) The above verses clarify that all Other than Allah, The Prophet saww, and Imams from Ahl albayt as are Auliya beside Allah and they are partners to Allah swt. What are the Names of the Partners to Allah swt? أَفَمَنْ هُوَ قَآئِمٌ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ نَفْسٍۭ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ ۗ وَجَعَلُوا۟ لِلَّهِ شُرَكَآءَ قُلْ سَمُّوهُمْ ۚ أَمْ تُنَبِّـُٔونَهُۥ بِمَا لَا يَعْلَمُ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ أَم بِظَٰهِرٍۢ مِّنَ ٱلْقَوْلِ ۗ بَلْ زُيِّنَ لِلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ مَكْرُهُمْ وَصُدُّوا۟ عَنِ ٱلسَّبِيلِ ۗ وَمَن يُضْلِلِ ٱللَّهُ فَمَا لَهُۥ مِنْ هَادٍۢ {٣٣} 013:033 Is He who sustains every soul in spite of what it earns [comparable to the idols]? Yet they ascribe partners to Allah! Say, ‘Name them!’ Will you inform Him concerning something He does not know about on the earth, or concerning [what are] mere words? Indeed, to the faithless, their scheming is presented as decorous, and they have been barred from the way; and whomever Allah leads astray, has no guide. ٥٣_٢٣ إِنْ هِىَ إِلَّآ أَسْمَآءٌۭ سَمَّيْتُمُوهَآ أَنتُمْ وَءَابَآؤُكُم مَّآ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ بِهَا مِن سُلْطَٰنٍ ۚ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا ٱلظَّنَّ وَمَا تَهْوَى ٱلْأَنفُسُ ۖ وَلَقَدْ جَآءَهُم مِّن رَّبِّهِمُ ٱلْهُدَىٰٓ 053:023 These are but names, which you have coined—you and your fathers—for which Allah has not sent down any authority. They follow nothing but conjectures and the desires of the [lower] soul, while there has already come to them the guidance from their Lord. أَفَرَءَيْتُمُ ٱللَّٰتَ وَٱلْعُزَّىٰ، وَمَنَوٰةَ ٱلثَّالِثَةَ ٱلْأُخْرَىٰٓ، 053:019 Have you considered Lat and ‘Uzza? 053:020 and Manat, the third one? The above verse mentions clearly three (3) names (including Lat, Munaat and Uzza ) are Partners to Allah swt. Thus to avoid these partners we should obey Allah swt, the Prophet and Imams from Ahl albayt as as given under verses ( like 5:55, 56 and 4:59). The discussion can be concluded by the following verse: ٣٨_٢٩ كِتَٰبٌ أَنزَلْنَٰهُ إِلَيْكَ مُبَٰرَكٌۭ لِّيَدَّبَّرُوٓا۟ ءَايَٰتِهِۦ وَلِيَتَذَكَّرَ أُو۟لُوا۟ ٱلْأَلْبَٰبِ [This is] a blessed Book that We have sent down to you, so that they may contemplate its signs, and that those who possess intellect may take admonition. 038:029 ( Regards
  9. Sallam, As we know the Hadith of the prophet (as) when Imam Hussain (as) was born they asked Imam Ali (as), what will he name him, he said it's up to the prophet (as), and when the prophet was asked, he said it was up to Allah. And I've heard multiply scholars/lecturers say that Allah gives the names of the Imams and Prophet. But in this hadith by Mufadhil Ibna Umar narrates that when Imam Jafar Al-sadiq's wife Hamida was giving birth, he went to her...and when he came back to his companions he said "Allah has gifted me with a son that resembles Nabi Musa, so I shall name him Musa." As far as I understand the Imam (as) named his son, I don't understand what the deal is here. Anyone have a reasonable answer?
  10. Salam, I am looking for a name that is both Iranian and Shia. I like the name Anousheh, but I live in the UK and so am afraid that it will be too difficult to pronounce. I also really like Ayla, but would like to know if it is a Shia name/acceptable amongst Shia's and also I wanted to know of its cultural origins, because I know only a few Ayla's which are iranian. Regards

  12. Salaam alaykum Brothers and Sisters. I always wanted to do this but I kept putting it off but now it is something that I really want to achieve, inshAllah. As a revert who doesn't know any Arabic, besides a few basic letters (I'm currently learning ATM :D) it is somewhat difficult to memorise Quran so I thought I would try and slowly memorise the 99 Names of Allah. I think this is something we could all do together and of course it's up to the individual if they want to memorise 3, 5 or 10 names of Allah every day. I plan on memorsing His names from this site: http://everybreatheverysecond.com/ This is also where I learn to memorise Qur'an from: http://www.mounthira.com/ It is an excellent site I want to ask, who has already memorised the 99 Names of Allah? What were the methods and techniques you applied when learning them? I plan to study and memorise a few names very morning after Fajr and then revise what I memorised that night before I go to bed and repeat the process until I have all 99 names memorised. Also, could all Brothers and Sisters who know of any Hadiths about the merits and rewards of those who memorise the names of Allah please post them here as well :) Wassalaam :)
