قال الله تعالى:{يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ مَن يَرْتَدَّ مِنكُمْ عَن دِينِهِۦ فَسَوْفَ يَأْتِى ٱللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍ يُحِبُّهُمْ وَيُحِبُّونَهُ} المائدة-54

“O you who believe, whoever from among you turns back from His religion (Islam), Allah will bring a people whom He will love, and they will love Him” Surah Al-Maeda [54]

 

Taking the path of knowing Allah and understanding His names and attributes is the way to attain His love.

Your heart will never be alive and happy until it finds Allah and this is done by knowing about Him. Once you know him, this knowledge regarding Him begins to affect your heart, which fills with love and glorification to Allah and it will start fulfilling the purpose of its creation which is to worship Allah.

Ibn Al-Qayyim said: There is no doubt that perfect servitude to Allah is part of perfect love. Undoubtedly love of Him leads to submission and obedience to Him, seeking His pleasure, doing one’s utmost in worship of Him and turning to Him. This is the best and strongest motive to do acts of worship.

So your heart needs to know Allah to be filled with love toward Him and to start enjoying each act of worship you make. Your heart needs to know about Allah to put its hopes in Him and to hope for His provision, protection, reward and forgiveness. Your heart needs to know about Allah to glorify Him and to fear His anger and punishment. Your heart needs to know about Allah to be able to worship Allah in the way which pleases Him.

The aim of this site is to explain Allah’s perfect and beautiful names and attributes.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Allah has 99 names, one hundred less one. Anyone who learns them will enter Jannah. . (Agreed upon by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

We ask Allah to  grant our hearts a correct and complete understanding about Him and to guide us to act upon this.
