asmaul husna

This post is also available in: Indonesia

Asmaul husna as affirmed in his words: “And Allah has good names (great, noble) so call to Him by mentioning those names, and leave those who turn away from the truth in using His names. They will be recompensed for what they did.” (Surah Al-A’raf, verse 180).

Say, “Call on ALLAH, or call on AR-RAHMAN. With any name you’re fun with. He has al asmaul husna (the best names) “He is ALLAH, there is no God but He, He has al-asmaul-husna (good names)”- (Surah Thaha:8).

Asmaul husna according to its grammatical meaning consists of the word Asma which has the meaning of a name and husna that has a good meaning, great, noble or beautiful. When combined, Asma’ul Husna contains the understanding of the names of Allah S.W.T which are charged with beauty and goodness.

Based on the word of Allah SWT in Surah Al-A’raf, verse 180 then Asmaul husna became an interesting theme to enrich the quality of human worship to the khaliq. There are various meanings that are so profound that can be obtained by studying, studying, permeating the meaning of each of the Asmaul husna.

Addressing Asmaul husna turns out to give birth to differences of opinion related to its meaning, meaning, and interpretation. In addition to the differences in terms of interpreting and interpreting the names, there are also differences in the number of names of Asmaul husna, there are opinions that say 99, 100, 200, even 1,000 names. Each opinion certainly has its basis, and it does not need to be further disputed.

The scholars, scholars and the present have made Asmaul husna as a source of inspiration and innovation in developing the application of Islamic teachings in the form of worship. By conducting a review and discussion of the interpretation of the names is expected to find the more clear address of Dzat that should be for the final purpose of all worship.

All syllables addressed to Allah SWT must be understood makana, its meaning and interpretation so that its use can be reasonable. God is the All-mighty, the All-wise. Therefore Muslims will not easily write “Allah is…”, because it is clear that there is nothing that can be equal to Allah SWT. But on the other hand it must be understood the teachings of the Qur’an about Allah SWT.

The scholars assert that all the absolute value of truth is only attached to Allah SWT. So the consequence is only Allah, the Most High. But Allah is Possessed of Power, All-Compassionate and Compassionate. Thus is the name of Allah with all its attributes explained by the term Asmaul Husna.

From a Hadith from Abu Hurairah R.a. he said the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. once said: “Verily Allah s.w.t has 99 names, i.e. one hundred less one, whoever counts them (memorizing them in full) enters heaven” – Bukhari’s Narrated.
And a total of 99 names of Allah (Asmaul Husna) are:
