Have you been contemplating redoing residence with Al Asma Al Husna wall frames? Or do you want to give as present Names of Allah wall hangings to your loved ones? It would certainly be good for you to understand the meaning and significance of each of the Beautiful Names of Allah. Even more significantly, this type of knowledge would add to your faith and love for Our Lord. Each Name signifies His Divine Attribute. For example, the Name ‘Al Salaam’ means ‘The Embodiment of Peace’, The One Who is Perfect, free of any negative attributes. The Source/Giver of peace. The One Who will greet the believers with ‘salaam (peace)’.He is ‘Al Mu’min’ The Believer, The One Who Testifies the Shahadah, The One Who Proves the imaan of the prophets and the believers, The One Who provides security and safety to the believers against evil and injustice, against the fear of the grave and fear on the Day of Judgement, The One Who provides peace to the heart and the mind. The 99 Beautiful Names of Allah are collectively called ‘Al Asma Al Husna’. ‘Al Asma’ means ‘The Names’ and ‘Al Husna’ means ‘The Beautiful’.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him said) said: ‘To God belongs 99 names, 100 minus 1, anyone who memorizes them will enter Paradise; He (God) is odd (odd number, he is the Only One), and He loves odd numbers (such as 99).’
In Surah Al Taha (Verse 8) of the Quran: ‘Allah – there is no deity except Him. To Him belong the best names.’
In Surah Al Ara’af(Verse 180): ‘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.’
The Names of Allah occur as pairs across several places in the Holy Quran. For example, Al-Salaam and Al-Mu’min, mentioned at the start of the article, are paired in Surah Al-Hashr:
“Allah is He other than whom there is no other god, the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection), The Guardian of Faith the Preserver of Safety the Exalted in Might the Irresistible the Supreme: Glory to Allah! (high is He) above the partners, they attribute to Him.” – Quran 59:23
The first verse of the Quran, and the opening verse of all chapters, except one, is “Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir-Raheem’ (In the Name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful) where ‘Al Rahman’ is the ‘The Most Beneficent’ and ‘Al Raheem’ is ‘The Most Merciful’.
Usually, all 99 Names are displayed in Al Asma Al Husna wall frames, but some Names of Allah wall hangings have just a few Names, sometimes one, two, three, or more – displayed in one frame, or different small frames arranged together. For example, someone may be looking for a wall frame only the names ‘Al Salaam’ and ‘Al-Mu’min’. Indeed, the world of Names of Allah wall art is rich in the variety of artworks on offer.
