99 Names Project

99 Names of Allah in 99 Days Fifth Week Summary

99 names of Allah will try to be understood 99 days before Ramadan through the project started by Jenny Molendyk Divleli with the hashtag #99namesproject2022. The goal of the project shared by Jenny Molendyk on her Instagram account is to understand, learn, and repeat one of the names of Allah each day until Ramadan. Showing the effort is so meaningful, both in terms of getting together as a family in such an event and teaching children the beautiful names of Allah. 

Alhamdulillah, we have reached lots of people on this path and we have already completed the fifth week of the process. We hope the week was beneficial for everyone. So, let’s look at what we did during the week.

99 Names of Allah in 99 Days Fifth Week Summary, we studied the names of Allah, Al-Hakam, Al-Adl, Al-Lateef, Al-Khabir, Al-Halim, Al-Azeem, Al-Ghafoor. For those who missed some days or want to repeat them, we have compiled the works that we have worked on this week. Then we can start.

Day 29: Al-Hakam

The Arbitrator, The Judge, The Giver of Justice.

Allah is Al-Hakam (in Arabic: ٱلْحَكَمُ), The Giver of Justice. His judgment, once rendered, cannot be thwarted. He always delivers justly in every situation and never makes a mistake. He is the best of judges.

أَفَحُكْمَ ٱلْجَـٰهِلِيَّةِ يَبْغُونَ ۚ وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ حُكْمًۭا لِّقَوْمٍۢ يُوقِنُونَ
Then is it the judgement of [the time of] ignorance they desire? But who is better than Allah in judgement for a people who are certain [in faith].

إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَأْمُرُ بِٱلْعَدْلِ وَٱلْإِحْسَـٰنِ وَإِيتَآئِ ذِى ٱلْقُرْبَىٰ وَيَنْهَىٰ عَنِ ٱلْفَحْشَآءِ وَٱلْمُنكَرِ وَٱلْبَغْىِ ۚ يَعِظُكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ

He does things for you that you will never know. This is the name of Allah سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ to call when asking for help through hardship.

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ أَنزَلَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءًۭ فَتُصْبِحُ ٱلْأَرْضُ مُخْضَرَّةً ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَطِيفٌ خَبِيرٌۭ

نَّ ٱلَّذِينَ تَوَلَّوْا۟ مِنكُمْ يَوْمَ ٱلْتَقَى ٱلْجَمْعَانِ إِنَّمَا ٱسْتَزَلَّهُمُ ٱلشَّيْطَـٰنُ بِبَعْضِ مَا كَسَبُوا۟ ۖ وَلَقَدْ عَفَا ٱللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ غَفُورٌ حَلِيمٌۭ
Indeed, those of you who turned back on the day the two armies met, it was Satan who caused them to slip because of some [blame] they had earned. But Allah has already forgiven them. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Forbearing.
