Answer:

 

99 names of Allah

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Your Question: I also need "the three umoor of knowing Allah's names that is --1- Asbath al Ism  2--Asbath al siffat   3-- Asbath al Asar with each and every name. If i am not mistaken one is garanteed the entrance to jannah after knowing the umoor and acting upon them and not just by memorizing or reciting the names. (according to the authentic Hadeeth)

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.419 Narrated by Abu Huraira

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: Allah has ninety-nine Names, i.e., one hundred minus one, and whoever believes in their meanings and acts accordingly, will enter Paradise; and Allah is Witr (one) and loves 'the Witr' (i.e., odd numbers).

 

Beloved sister in Islam, Allah Subhanah has introduced Himself through His Noble and Exclusive Attributes to His slaves, and it is only through Allahs Exclusive Attributes does a believer recognize, comprehend, revere, adore, and submit to his Supreme Lord and Creator. Only if one truly comprehends and understands the Noble Attributes of the Lord All Mighty, can one truly love, revere, and fear Him.

 

These Noble Attributes are not some chants, where simply by repeating a certain Attribute x number of times, one will get the desired result! If one recites the Noble Attribute of Allah Who is indeed the Ar-Razzaak (The Provider) a billion times one will not become rich, nor can one get his sins forgiven by chanting Al-Ghaffaar a million times, etc.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 180: The Most Beautiful Names belong to Allah: so call on Him by them; but shun such men as use profanity in His Names: for what they do, they will soon be requited.

 

One may call upon the Merciful Lord by any of the Noble Attributes one wills, and supplicate to Him in all humility; but to call upon a particular Attribute for a fixed number of times is not from the Sunnah or way of the Prophet (saws). Never ever did the Messenger of Allah (saws) repeat a particular Attribute of Allah a certain fixed number of times, nor did he (saws) ever encourage the believers to do so. One may call upon or supplicate the Merciful Lord using His Noble Attributes any number of times one wills; but to fix a number of times to chant a particular Attribute, and believe that by chanting a certain attribute n number of times a certain or particular thing will happen or will be given is absolutely against the guidance and teachings of the Messenger of Allah (saws).

 

When the Messenger of Allah (saws) has not fixed any umoor or count, it does not behove the believers to ascertain an umoor from themselves; for that would indeed be an innovation in the deen brought by the Messenger of Allah (saws).

 

Sahih Muslim Hadith 1885 Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah

That the Prophet of Allah (saws) said in a sermon: The best speech is that which is embodied in the Book of Allah, the Al Quran; and the best guidance is the guidance given by me, Mohamed (saws). The most evil affairs are the innovations, and every innovation is an error.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
