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 ninth 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 Ninth Week Summary, we studied the names of Allah, Al-Hameed, Al-Muhsi, Al-Mubdi, Al-Muid, Al-Muhyi, Al-Mumeet, Al-Hayy. 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 57: Al-Hameed
Meaning :The Praiseworthy
The Praiseworthy, The Laudable one.
Allah سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ is Al-Hameed (in Arabic: ٱلْحَمِيدُ), meaning the one worthy of praise. He qualifies as the praiseworthy one because of all His attributes and because He has given us what we have. He is the only one deserving in every manner of praise, and He should be exalted. Join in extolling him by repeating ‘al-hamdu lillah, meaning ‘praise be to Allah.’
For the believers there is always a win-win situation. The Prophet (pbuh) said: The affair of the believer is amazing. The whole of his life is beneficial, and that is only in the case of the believer. When good times come to him, he is thankful and it is good for him, and when bad times befall him, he is patient and it is also good for him. [Muslim] Deeply reflect on this hadith and say: alhamdulillah ‘alaa kulli haal– alhamdulillah in every case or situation.
