The Beautiful Names of Allāh

allah

The most beautiful names belong to Allāh: so call on Him by them

Qur'ān 7:180, tr Yusuf Ali

Call upon Allāh or call upon Rahmān: by whatever name ye call upon Him (it is well): for to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names.

Qur'ān 17:110, tr Yusuf Ali

The glorious name Allāh, subhāna wa ta'ālā,  is the greatest and most beautiful of all the names.  The name Allāh encompasses all of the divine names and attributes of perfection.

The name Allāh is the Arabic proper name of the One, while other names, descriptions and titles such as these ninety-nine beautiful names are considered to be attributes of Allāh. That is, they are the signs by which we recognize the wonder and glory of the Almighty One.

The essence of all attributes, descriptions and names are unified in this one name, Allāh, which denotes the ultimate perfection of love, harmony and beauty.

He is Allah the Creator the Evolver the Bestower of Forms (or colors). To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names: Whatever is in the heavens and on earth doth declare His Praises and Glory: and He is the exalted in Might the Wise.

Qur'ān 59:24, tr Yusuf Ali

Allah! there is no god but He! To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names.

Qur'ān 20:8, tr Yusuf Ali
