99 Names of God

The purpose of this webpage is to introduce Islam though some verses in the Quran that allude to the nature of God. Human interpretations of all of our Holy Books have lead to terrible difficulties among our various faiths. It is my hope that these verses from the Quran will unify rather than divide.

If the Quran is about anything it is about God - The Quran points to many things about God: What is His basic nature? Does He need or want anything from us? What are his attributes? How does He view our various religions? and so forth.

Here are verses in the Quran that point to some of the attributes of God often called the 99 names of God.

They were evicted from their homes unjustly, for no reason other than saying, "Our Lord is GOD." If it were not for GOD's supporting of some people against others, monasteries, churches, synagogues, and masjids—where the name of GOD is commemorated frequently—would have been destroyed.

GOD repulsed those who disbelieved with their rage, and they left empty handed. GOD thus spared the believers any fighting. GOD is Powerful, Almighty. (The Parties, 33:25)

GOD is Powerful, Almighty. (Iron 57:25)

Shifts (of angels) take turns, staying with each one of you—they are in front of you and behind you. They stay with you, and guard you in accordance with GOD's commands.

To GOD belongs everything in the heavens and the earth, and we have enjoined on those who received the scripture before you, and enjoined on you, that you shall reverence GOD. If you disbelieve, then to GOD belongs everything in the heavens and the earth. GOD is in no need, Praiseworthy(Women', 4:131)

In it are clear signs: the station of Abraham. Anyone who enters it shall be granted safe passage. The people owe it to GOD that they shall observe Hajj to this shrine, when they can afford it. As for those who disbelieve, GOD does not need anyone. (The Amramites 3:97)

If you disbelieve, GOD does not need anyone. But He dislikes to see His servants make the wrong decision. If you decide to be appreciative, He is pleased for you. No soul bears the sins of any other soul. Ultimately, to your Lord is your return, then He will inform you of everything you had done. He is fully aware of the innermost thoughts. (The Throngs 39:7) 

You are invited to spend in the cause of GOD, but some of you turn stingy. The stingy are stingy towards their own souls. GOD is Rich, while you are poor. (Muhammad 47:38)

Moses said, "If you disbelieve, along with all the people on earth, GOD is in no need, Praiseworthy." (Abraham, 14:8)

As Allah informs us in many other verses, He is the real Owner of power and wealth. He is Rich Beyond Need of any being, but everything and everyone is in need of Him, as the Qur'an reveals below:

Have they not traveled in the land and seen the final fate of those before them? They were far greater than them in strength. Allah cannot be withstood in any way, either in the heavens or on Earth. He is All-Knowing, All-Powerful. (Surah Fatir, 35:44)


The Enricher Al-Mughni

O you who believe, the idol worshipers are polluted; they shall not be permitted to approach the Sacred Masjid after this year. If you fear loss of income, GOD will shower you with His provisions, in accordance with His will. GOD is Omniscient, Most Wise. (Ultimatum 9:28)


The Preventer of Harm Al-Mani'

Who is there to provide for you, if He withholds His provisions? Indeed, they have plunged deep into transgression and aversion. (Kingship 67:21)

He said, "We will strengthen you with your brother, and we will provide you both with manifest authority. Thus, they will not be able to touch either one of you. With our miracles, the two of you, together with those who follow you, will be the victors."(28:35 History)


The Creator of The Harmful Ad-Darr

If GOD touches you with adversity, none can relieve it except He. And if He touches you with a blessing, He is Omnipotent. (Livestock 6:17)

Shall I set up beside Him gods? If the Most Gracious willed any harm for me, their intercession cannot help me one bit, nor can they rescue me. (Ya Sin, 36:23)

If you ask them, "Who created the heavens and the earth?" they will say, "GOD." Say, "Why then do you set up idols beside GOD? If GOD willed any adversity for me, can they relieve such an adversity? And if He willed a blessing for me, can they prevent such a blessing?" Say, "GOD is sufficient for me." In Him the trusters shall trust. (The Throngs, 39:38)


The Creator of Good An-Nafi'

Do they not realize that GOD increases the provision for whomever He wills, or reduces it? These should be lessons for people who believe. (The Romans 30:37)


The Light An-Nur

GOD is the light of the heavens and the earth. The allegory of His light is that of a concave mirror behind a lamp that is placed inside a glass container. The glass container is like a bright, pearl-like star. The fuel thereof is supplied from a blessed oil-producing tree, that is neither eastern, nor western. Its oil is almost self-radiating; needs no fire to ignite it. Light upon light. GOD guides to His light whomever He wills. GOD thus cites the parables for the people. GOD is fully aware of all things. (Light, 24:35)

If GOD renders one's heart content with Submission, he will be following a light from his Lord. Therefore, woe to those whose hearts are hardened against GOD's message; they have gone far astray. (The Throngs, 39:22)

24:40] Another allegory is that of being in total darkness in the midst of a violent ocean, with waves upon waves, in addition to thick fog. Darkness upon darkness—if he looked at his own hand, he could barely see it. Whomever GOD deprives of light, will have no light. (Light, 24:40)

Is one who was dead and we granted him life, and provided him with light that enables him to move among the people, equal to one in total darkness from which he can never exit? The works of the disbelievers are thus adorned in their eyes. (Livestock, 6:122)

He is the One who sends down to His servant clear revelations, in order to lead you out of the darkness into the light. GOD is Compassionate towards you, Most Merciful. (Iron, 57:9)

O people of the scripture, our messenger has come to you to proclaim for you many things you have concealed in the scripture, and to pardon many other transgressions you have committed. A beacon has come to you from GOD, and a profound scripture. With it, GOD guides those who seek His approval. He guides them to the paths of peace, leads them out of darkness into the light by His leave, and guides them in a straight path. (The Feast, 5:15-16)

The day will come when you see the believing men and women with their lights radiating ahead of them and to their right. Good news is yours that, on that day, you will have gardens with flowing streams. You will abide therein forever. This is the great triumph. On that day, the hypocrite men and women will say to those who believed, "Please allow us to absorb some of your light." It will be said, "Go back behind you, and seek light." A barrier will be set up between them, whose gate separates mercy on the inner side, from retribution on the outer side. (Iron, 57:12-13)

GOD is Lord of those who believe; He leads them out of darkness into the light. As for those who disbelieve, their lords are their idols; they lead them out of the light into darkness—these will be the dwellers of Hell; they abide in it forever. (The Heifer, 2:257)

He is the One who helps you, together with His angels, to lead you out of darkness into the light. He is Most Merciful towards the believers. (The Parties, 33:43)

Then the earth will shine with the light of its Lord. The record will be proclaimed, and the prophets and the witnesses will be brought forth. Everyone will then be judged equitably, without the least injustice. (The Throngs, 39:69)

Those who believed in GOD and His messengers are the saints and martyrs. Reserved for them at their Lord are their rewards and their light. As for those who disbelieved and rejected our revelations, they have incurred Hell. (Iron, 57:19)

O you who believe, you shall reverence GOD and believe in His messenger. He will then grant you double the reward from His mercy, endow you with light to guide you, and forgive you. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful. (Iron, 57:28)


The Guide Al-Hadi

Those who are blessed with knowledge will recognize the truth from your Lord, then believe in it, and their hearts will readily accept it. Most assuredly, GOD guides the believers in the right path. (Pilgrimage, 22:54)

And they believe in what was revealed to you, and in what was revealed before you, and with regard to the Hereafter, they are absolutely certain. These are guided by their Lord; these are the winners. As for those who disbelieve, it is the same for them; whether you warn them, or not warn them, they cannot believe. GOD seals their minds and their hearing, and their eyes are veiled. They have incurred severe retribution. (The Heifer, 2:4-7)

You cannot guide the ones you love. GOD is the only One who guides in accordance with His will, and in accordance with His knowledge of those who deserve the guidance. (History, 28:56)

Who is the One who guides you in the darkness of land and sea? Who is the One who sends the winds with good news, signaling His mercy? Is it another god with God? Most exalted is God, above having any partner.(27:63 The Ant)


The Originator Al-Badi

The Initiator of the heavens and the earth: to have anything done, He simply says to it, "Be," and it is. (The Heifer, 2:117)

Say, "My Lord advocates justice, and to stand devoted to Him alone at every place of worship. You shall devote your worship absolutely to Him alone. Just as He initiated you, you will ultimately go back to Him." (Purgatory, 7:29)

6:101] The Initiator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have a son, when He never had a mate? He created all things, and He is fully aware of all things. (Livestock, 6:101)


The Everlasting One Al-Baqi

Everyone on earth perishes; all that remains is the Face of your Lord, full of majesty, bestowing honor. (The Lord of Mercy 55:26)

Whatever things you have been given for the life of this world are merely gratification and vanity: that which is God is better and more lasting - will you not use your reason? (The Story 28:60)

We have believed in our Lord, that He may forgive us our sins, and the magic that you forced us to perform. God is far better and Everlasting.(20:73 Ta Ha)


The Inheritor of All Al-Warith

Many a community we annihilated for turning unappreciative of their lives. Consequently, here are their homes, nothing but uninhabited ruins after them, except a few. We were the inheritors. (History, 28:58)

It is we who control life and death, and we are the ultimate inheritors. (Al-Hijr Valley, 15:23)

And Zachariah implored his Lord: "My Lord, do not keep me without an heir, though You are the best inheritor." (The Prophets', 21:89)

We are the ones who inherit the earth and everyone on it; to us everyone will be returned.(19:40 Mary)


The Guide to the Right Path Ar-Rashid

Everything is in accordance with GOD's will; He knows what is declared, and what is hidden. We will direct you to the easiest path. (The Most High 87:7-8)

Everything is in accordance with God's will; He knows what is declared, and what is hidden. We will direct you to the easiest path(87:7-8 The Most High)

There shall be no compulsion in religion: the right way is now distinct from the wrong way. Anyone who denounces the devil and believes in GOD has grasped the strongest bond; one that never breaks. GOD is Hearer, Omniscient. (The Heifer 2:256)


The Patient One As-Sabur

Not specifically mentioned in the Quran as one of God’s names.
