Class 4

‘Knowing Allah and A Muslims required Etiquette with Him’


The first and foremost required Etiquette from a Muslim is to Know Allah, His Rights & The Muslim’s Etiquettes with Him S.W.T.  So InshaAllah we start the course with Knowing Allah and His Rights.

Allaah is the Arabic word for “one God”, the same as Eloh in Aramaic. Allaah is not the God of Muslims only. He is God of all creations, because He is their Creator and Sustainer.

Knowing Allah

The best way to know Allah is by His names and He has 99 Beautiful names.

Hadith – Sahih Muslim and Bukhari 8:419, Narrated Abu Huraira : Allah has ninety-nine Names, i.e., one hundred minus one, and whoever ‘ahsaha’ [enumerates them, believes in them, ponders their meanings, worships Allah by them and supplicates with them, and acts by them according to one’s belief in them] will enter Paradise”.

Allah He who has the Godhood which is the power to create the entities.
