    Default The One Hundred Most Beautiful Names of God

    Many Arabic given names and bynames are attributive in nature. A common construction uses `Abdul followed by one of the attributes of Allah. `Abdul seems to derive from the three letter root `Ain-Baa'-Daal, which translates as either "worshipper" or "slave". I am therefore using the translation "devoted", although "servant" is probably just fine. The final consonant of `Abdul, Lam, is the article "the", and the preposition "of" is implicit. Sir Richard Burton, in his translation of The Arabian Nights, translates the name of one Khalifa as `Abd al-Malik "Devoted of the King", while Shaykh al-Haveti translator of the Futuwwah, transliterates the same name as `Adul-Malik. So the rendering of the word is simply a choice of transliteration systems. I prefer al-Haveti's as being more consistent. In any case, it seems that the word following `Abdul usually does not take the article.
    The following names using this construction have been documented from these two sources:

    `Abdullah Devoted of God
    `Abdul-Malik Devoted of the King
    `Abdul-Razzaq Devoted of the Provider
    `Abdul-Rahman Devoted of the Merciful
    `Abdul-Aziz Devoted of Strong
    `Abdul-Azeem Devoted of Most High
    `Abdul-Jaleel Devoted of Splendid
    `Abduk Not translatable
    `Abdul-Ahad Slave of the One and Only
    `Abdul-Qadir Slave of Providence (Fate)
    `Abdul-Salaam Slave of Peace (salvation?)
    `Abdul-Sammad Slave of Eternal (Stable)
    Each of these names derives from one of the names of God.

    What follows is a list of the One Hundred Most Beautiful Names of God, and their English translations. It is my opinion that the College of Arms should allow them in properly constructed Arabic names. The list is sorted alphabetically according to the Arabic alphabet. Where possible, the translation is followed by the three letter Arabic root word. This material is taken from Know Your Islam by Yousef N. Lalljee (Tahrike Tarsile Qur'an Inc., NY 1986). In the transliteration system I have chosen, several Arabic letters are indicated in Roman text by a letter with a dot under it. For typographical reasons, those letters are indicated in this article by underlined letters.

    Allah taala ke naam ka zikr karna bhi ibadat hai. Jo koi Allah Taala ke Naam padhe Har Naam ke Baad "Jalle Jala Lahu" jaroor padhe.
