The most beautiful thing in this life is to know Allaah The Almighty with His Names and Attributes. Allaah The Almighty says:

 {And to Allah belong the best names, so invoke Him by them. And leave [the company of] those who practice deviation concerning His names. They will be recompensed for what they have been doing.} [Al-A‘raaf 180]

Ibn Al-Qayyim, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: I wonder at the one who knew Allaah The Almighty well and did not love Him. I wonder at the one who knew how profitable transaction is with Him and did not worship Him. I wonder at the one who knew what a loss he will experience in turning away from Him and disobeys Him.

The best method of entering the Paradise is to preserve His Names, believe in them and act upon them. It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Allaah The Exalted has ninety-nine Names, one hundred less one; whoever then preserves them, will enter Paradise.”[1]

  • The best thing with which Allaah The Almighty can be worshiped is to know His Names and Attributes.

Abul Qaasim At-Tameemi, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: Some scholars said: The first obligatory action that Allaah The Almighty has prescribed on His creation is to know Him for if people know Him well, they will worship Him properly.[2]

Imam Al-Bukhaari, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: "Knowledge before speech and action": Allaah The Almighty says:

{So know, [O Muْammad], that there is no deity except Allah and ask forgiveness for your sin.} [Muhammad 19] 

  • The best Ayah (verse) in the Holy Quran speaks about the Names and Attributes of Allaah The Almighty:

It is the ‘Ayah of Al-Kursi’. It is such the blessed Ayah that contains ten clauses all of them speak about the Beautiful Names and Sublimes Attributes of Allaah The Almighty.

It was narrated on the authority of Ubayy ibn Ka‘b, may Allaah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said to him: Do you know which is the greatest Ayah you memorize in the Book of Allaah The Almighty? He said: I answered,

{Allaahu la ilaaha illa huwa alhayyu alqayyoomu (Allaah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence.)} [Al-Baqarah 255]

He then said: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, patted on my chest and said, "By Allaah, I congratulate you for having such knowledge and insight, O Abu Al-Munthir."[3]
