Explanation to the Beautiful and Perfect Names of Allah ,

Author: Shaykh abu ‘Abdu-r Rahman Nasir as-Sa’di

Healing Allamah Shaikh Abd ar-Rahman ibn Nasir as-Sa’di at-Tamimi (1889–1956) was a prominent Islamic scholar, jurist, exegete, and Arabic grammarian with a great interest in poetry who contributed many works on a variety of subjects, including his famous Tafsir. May Allah benefit us from his works.

By the age of twenty-three, he was teaching students of his own. He was considered an expert in fiqh and usool al-fiqh. Initially, he adhered to the Hanbali school of Islamic law (madhab), as did his early teachers. He went on to study the works of Ibn Taymiyyah (d.1328) and Ibn al-Qayyim (d.1350) extensively, and, as he progressed in his studies, he no longer restricted himself to the Hanbali school, but rather followed the course he believed to be proven by the strongest evidences. He was also an expert in tafsir (Quranic exegesis or commentary), having read many books of tafsir and studied it under his teachers; he later authored a tafsir himself.

Explanation to the Beautiful and Perfect Names of Allah

From the most noble and lofty stations of cognisance is to know the Lord, the Glorious, through His beauty. This is the knowledge possessed by the elite of this creation. All of them know Him through an Attribute from amongst His Attributes but those amongst them who have the most complete cognisance are those who know Him through His perfection, magnificence and beauty. There is nothing comparable to Him in any of His Attributes, if you were to assume that the whole of creation was in its most exquisite form, and you were to try and compare their collective outward and inward beauty to the beauty of the Lord, the Glorious, the comparison would be more ineffectual than a faint torch being held against the blazing disk of the sun.

This treatise has been extracted from the opening words of Shaykh Nasir as-Sa’di, may Allah have mercy upon him, to his tarsier of the Qur’an, Taysir al-Karim al-Rahman, in which he succinctly and beautifully explains those Names of Allah that occur in the Qur’an. After each explanation the translator has added some verses of the Qur’an showing the usage of the particular Name in question. It should also be noted that the author, may Allah have mercy upon him, has only mentioned those Names that occur in the Qur’an and these come to a total of eighty-nine in his view.
