99 Names of Allah - (w/English Subtitles)
80's Classic - Names of Allah (SWT), w/English Subtitles
If you remember the 80's or even 90's, you'll recall that each year during Ramadan, this beautiful rendition of the 99 names of Allah would be played on the local TV channels (PTV/STN). Here it is again, one more time, with English Subtitles.
Hope it brings back some good memories and gives us a chance to reconnect with our Creator.
English explanation. The correct meanings of Asma` Allah Al-Husna.
Allah has the Names which indicate perfection. So call Him with these Names and leave out those who commit blasphemy by calling Him with nonbefitting names. They will be punished for what they did (calling Allah with improper names, or calling others with the Names of Allah) Verse 180 of Suratul-`A^raf.
Allah must not be attributed except with attributes of perfection. Any names that does not indicate perfection is not a name of His. For example, it is not accepted to call Allah 'rooh' which means soul or spirit. This word does not signify perfection and is not a name of Allah, because the soul is one of Allah's creation and the name 'rooh' was not mentioned in the Quran or the Hadith. There are other names also that are rejected to be the Names of Allah like Creative Quill, Super Mind ect.
The scholars said that as it is obligatory to believe that Allah is clear of any imperfection, it is also obligatory to believe that Allah's Names are clear of any imperfection. Allah is the exclusive Name of the Creator. It should be known that some of the Names of Allah are exclusive to Him, and others with which other than Allah can be also named. Examples of the exclusive Names are as-Rahman, al-Quddus, al-Khaliq, ar-Razzaq, Malikul-mulk and Dhul-Jalali wal-`Ikram. The Names of Allah must be respected irrespective of the language in which they are expressed.
