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 sixth week of the process. We hope the week was beneficial for everyone. So, let’s look at what we did during the week.
