As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Dear brother Burhan, As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

Are Sitteer and Maleek from the names of Allah. If so please refer to the verse of the Holy Quran and the Hadeeth? May Allah guide you.

Answer:

 

Sitteer and Maalik 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.

 

Ref: Sitteer

Sitteer is definitely not amongst the Beautiful Names of Allah Subhanah.

 

Ref: Malik

Malik or Maalik is also one of the Beautiful Names of Allah Subhanah, and it means the Sovereign Master or Lord.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 1 Surah Fateha verse 4: Maalik (Sovereign Master and Lord) of the Day of Judgment.

 

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.

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Respected brother Burhan, Assalam Alaikum

May Allah bless you and reward you for your unmatched work towards the spreading true knowledge about Islam.I have a question regard 99 Names of Mohammad SAW. These days we are receiving mails containing 99 names of Mohammad SAW. Is it correct to

believe on these names? Some of the names are as below:

Kareem, Raheem Yaseen, Nabi, Rasool etc.

In my view not all names attributed for Nabi SAW are correct, pls answer this question so that other muslims also can benefit from it and may be guided by the grace of Allah swt. One more question related to this, how many names Allah swt has in total?

Jazak allah Khair.

Answer:

 

Allahs and Prophet Mohameds names

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.

 

Asma means names, and husna means beautiful. Thus asma al husna means the Beautiful Names of Allah Subhanah.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Bani Israel verse 110:For to Him (Allah Alone) belong the Most Beautiful Names.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 3.894 Narrated by Abu Huraira

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "Allah has ninety-nine names, i.e. one-hundred minus one, and whoever knows them will go to Paradise."

 

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).

Your Question: I have a question regard 99 Names of Mohammad SAW. These days we are receiving mails containing 99 names of Mohammad SAW. Is it correct to believe on these names?

Some misguided people have gone to the extreme in their love and reverence of the Noble Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws), and have in their ignorance elevated him to the status that is reserved for Allah Subhanah Alone!

 

Just because Allah Subhanah has ninety-nine Names and Attributes, these ignorant people have tried to fix some names and attributes to the Noble Messenger of Allah (saws)! Never did the Prophet (saws) ever say that he had 99 names, nor did any of his noble companions ever call him or recognize him from his 99 names.

 

The Quran is extremely clear that the Asma-ul-Husna can belong Only to Allah Subhanah Alone, and it does not behove the believers, who sincerely believe in Allah and the Last Day, to share the Attributes or elevate anyone in the Universe to the status or rank of Allah Subhanah.

 

May Allah Subhanah guide the believers to the Path that is Straight. Ameen.
