We’re excited for the 2nd day of our challenge, that rather than just learning 3 a day we were able to learn the next 8 very easily. By following the Qur’an as our guide to helping us learn the 99 Names of Allah we chose to memorize 1 ayat (verse) in the Qur’an, Surah Al-Harsh 59:23 lists 8 His names here:
He is Allah beside Whom La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshiped but He), the King, the Holy, the One Free from all defects, the Giver of security, the Watcher over His creatures, the All-Mighty, the Compeller, the Supreme. Glory be to Allah! (High is He) above all that they associate as partners with Him.
|3||Al-Malik||The King, The Master, The Sovereign Lord||OTHER DEFINITIONS|
|4||Al-Quddus||The Holy, The Pure, The Perfect|
|5||As-Salam||The Peace and Blessing, The Source of Peace and Safety,|
|6||Al-Mu’min||The Guarantor, The Affirming,||One free of defects|
|7||Al-Muhaymin||The Guardian, The Protector||Giver of Security, Watcher of All Things|
|8||Al-Aziz||The Almighty, The Sufficient, The Honorable||Victorious|
|9||Al-Jabbar||The Irresistible, The Compeller, The Lofty,||Restorer, Repairer, All-Compelling|
|10||Al-Mutakabbir||The Highest, The Greatest||Supreme|
We’re practicing our Arabic spelling with the harakat (accent marks), and practicing our pronunciation by reading alongside Shaikh Mishary on QuranExplorer.com (one of our favorite places to learn Qur’an). We’re using SearchTruth.com for the online Qur’an and writing by hand in our Qur’an notebooks.
