Take the Poll!

Assalaam alaykum,

Alhamdulillaah, we’ve come to the end of the month wherein we highlighted some of the names of Allaah in the Qur’an. Now, I’ll like you to please take part in a quick poll to see just how well you remember the names that have been mentioned.

  1. As salaamu alaykum warahmatullaahi wabarakatuhu,
    Please, what does As Satee mean? I’m not so sure if it’s included in the 99 names of Allaah. I heard one time that Allaah has more than just 99 names. I cannot quote any evidence for this though. However, many Muslims are acquainted with the 99 names.

    Any clues?

    Shukraan

    • wa alaykum salaam wa rahmatullaah wa barakatuuh, yaa ukhty
      I have never heard of the name As-Satee, i have only come across As-Sitteer/As-Sateer which occurs in the hadiths. Or are you referring to “Satee” as commonly used in the Yoruba Language. One of the evidences that point to the fact that Allaah has more than 99 names is the hadith:

      “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘There is nobody who is afflicted with distress or grief and who says: O Allaah, I am Your slave, son of Your slave, son of Your maidservant, my forelock is in Your hand, Your command over me is ever executed and Your decree over me is just. I ask You by every name belonging to You which You have named Yourself with, or revealed in Your Book, or You taught to any of Your creation, or You have preserved in the knowledge of the Unseen with You, that You make the Qur’aan the life of my heart and the light of my breast, and a departure for my sorrow and a release for my anxiety,” – but Allaah will take away his distress and grief, and replace it with ease.’ He was asked, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, should we not learn it?’ He said, ‘Of course, whoever hears it should learn it.'” (Reported by Imaam Ahmad; this is a saheeh hadeeth).
      And also a qoute from islamqa says:

      “The Names of Allaah mentioned in the Qur’aan and Sunnah number over one hundred, as several scholars have agreed (see Al-Qawaa’id al-Muthlaa fi Sifaat Allaahi wa Asmaa’ihi by Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih ibn ‘Uthaymeen). Among these are ninety-nine names which, if one learns them and acts in accordance with them, will bring a great reward, as is indicated in the hadeeth narrated by Abu Hurayrah”

      I hope this helps.
