99 Names Project

99 Names of Allah in 99 Days Sixth 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 sixth 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 Sixth Week Summary, we studied the names of Allah, Al-Shakur, Al-Aliyy, Al-Kabeer, Al-Hafiz, Al-Muqeet, Al-Haseeb, Al-Jaleel. 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 36: Ash-Shakur

Meaning : The Acknowledging One

The Grateful, The Appreciative, The One who gives a lot of reward for a little obedience.

Allah سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ is Ash-Shakur (in Arabic: ٱلْشَّكُورُ), meaning the most grateful, the rewarder of good deeds, and is most appreciative. He notices the smallest of our acts of righteousness and rewards us for them in this life or the next. He is bountiful in giving and bestows great rewards for the smallest amount of good.

مَّا يَفْعَلُ ٱللَّهُ بِعَذَابِكُمْ إِن شَكَرْتُمْ وَءَامَنتُمْ ۚ وَكَانَ ٱللَّهُ شَاكِرًا عَلِيمًۭا
What would Allah do with your punishment if you are grateful and believe? And ever is Allah Appreciative and Knowing.
Surah An-nısa Ayat 147 (4:147 Quran) 



Call upon Ash-Shakur, for example, a Quranic dua with this name is: And they will say, Praise to Allah, who has removed from us [all] sorrow. Indeed, our Lord is Forgiving and Appreciative. [Quran, 35:34]

Make the dua below as well!

Oh Allah, Ash-Shakoor, we know that You are the most appreciative. Aid us to do good, make us of those who help others for Your sake only, and grant us sincerity and patience in our actions.

The name Al-Kabeer (in Arabic: ٱلْكَبِيرُ) is the name of Allah سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ meaning the perfection of greatness. The heart of the believer knows Allah is the essence of perfection and nothing is comparable to him. His greatness is beyond measure, and His being is unimaginable to the human mind.

ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ ٱلْحَقُّ وَأَنَّ مَا يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِهِ ٱلْبَـٰطِلُ وَأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ ٱلْعَلِىُّ ٱلْكَبِيرُ
That is because Allah is the Truth, and that what they call upon other than Him is falsehood, and because Allah is the Most High, the Grand.
Surah Luqman Ayat 30 (31:30 Quran)



Make the dua below! 

Oh Allah, Al-Kabeer, we know that Your Greatness is perfect and beyond our imaginations. Help us to reflect on Your greatness in order for us to stay close to Your commandments.

The Guarding One, The Protector, The One who Preserves what He created.

Allah سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ is Al-Hafiz (in Arabic: ٱلْحَفِيظُ), the guardian and protector of everything. He preserves all creations and remembers all that has ever been and all that is. He is the protector of The Qur’an and vowed to safeguard it from being changed or perverted, as was the case with previous scriptures.

إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا ٱلذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُۥ لَحَـٰفِظُونَ
Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, We will be its guardian.
Surah Al-hijr Ayat 9 (15:9 Quran).



Make the dua below and reflect on the connection of the name with the hadith!

Oh Allah, Al-Hafiz, we know that You preserve all there ever was, is, and will be. Give us your special protection by aiding us to fulfill Your commands, help us to be mindful of our sins, and make us rush to repent and be thankful to You for Your protection. Honor us by making us from those who memorize the Quran and be guarded by the Quran. Support us in our belief and awareness of Your knowledge, preservation, and recompense so we will strive to please You and earn Your Gardens!

Concerning the virtue of the hafiz who memorizes the Quran, al-Bukhaari (4937) narrated from ‘Aa’ishah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

The likeness of the one who reads Quran and memorizes it is that he is with the righteous honorable scribes. The likeness of the one who reads it and tries hard to memorize it even though it is difficult for him, he will have two rewards.


As Allah is the Protector and the Guardian we human beings need to protect the enviroment and be guarded by the verses of the Quran and hadith. Read the article below related to the topic!

Allah سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ is Al-Muqeet (in Arabic: ٱلْمُقِيتُ) meaning the ultimate sustainer. He gives strength and nourishment to His creations and maintains all that exists. He oversees, guards, and preserves all. To Allah سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ we owe the satisfaction of all needs, but He is alone and independent of needs.

مَّن يَشْفَعْ شَفَـٰعَةً حَسَنَةًۭ يَكُن لَّهُۥ نَصِيبٌۭ مِّنْهَا ۖ وَمَن يَشْفَعْ شَفَـٰعَةًۭ سَيِّئَةًۭ يَكُن لَّهُۥ كِفْلٌۭ مِّنْهَا ۗ وَكَانَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍۢ مُّقِيتًۭا
Whoever intercedes for a good cause will have a reward therefrom; and whoever intercedes for an evil cause will have a burden therefrom. And ever is Allah, over all things, a Keeper.
Surah An-nısa Ayat 85 (4:85 Quran)



Oh Allah, Al-Muqeet, we know that You are the only One able to maintain all there ever was, is and will be. Sustain our bodies and souls , make us recognize Your sustenance and guide us to be of those who use their sustenance to gain Your Pleasure and become a way of sustenance for others, teaching others and leading them to You.
