Asma ul Husna, the most beautiful names of Allah, are mentioned in the Quran in Surah Al -A’raf, verse 180, Surah Al-Isra, verse 110; Surah At-Taha, verse 8 and Surah Al-Hashr, verse 22-24. The Holy Quran tells us to pray to Allah by using His most beautiful names in Surah Al-A’raf, verse 180 and Surah Al-Isra, verse 110.

These names, when used in dhikr – remembering Allah – and in supplication, lead to the acceptance of prayers and result in the accumulation of good deeds.A person will feel the need to make a connection and establish a relationship with Him in their heart and not just with their mind. The role played by the Asma ul Husna is very great in this respect.
