About the Book: “Who Is Allah?” is more than just a book about Allah’s names and attributes. It aims to build a bridge between knowledge of Allah and the practical application of this knowledge in a person’s daily life. By delving into why knowledge of Allah is important and how to apply this knowledge, the reader is given a means upon which to act in his or her quest for a close and rewarding relationship with Allah.
Over 100 of Allah’s names are individually discussed, providing proof from the Qur’an and Sunnah, explanation of their meanings, useful applications, and supplications utilizing each from the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him). Over 60 of Allah’s attributes are given specialized attention as well, all for the sake of providing a thorough and comprehensive approach to the most important subject matter that a person can learn about – Allah, the Mighty and Majestic.

Hina Sami –
What I loved about this book is how it takes every Name of Allah and explains its meanings with a delicate detail that touches the heart. Every Name is followed by a verse from the Quran that mention it and then its meaning and then a supplication that we can make through that Name. This book can help one appreciate the enormity and heftiness of Allah’s Names and Attributes. Read and be ready to love your Creator more, Insha Allah.
