The 99 attributes of Allah – by Imam al Ghazali

Al-Ghazali on the Ninety-nine Beautiful Names of God” (al-Masad al-asna fi sharh asma’Allah al-husna) is based on the Prophet’s teaching that `Ninety-nine Beautiful Names’ are truly predicated of God. In this work, Abu Hamid al-Ghazali explores the meaning and resonance of each of these divine Names, and reveals the functions they perform both in the cosmos and in the soul of the spiritual adept. In addition, Ghazali explains how man’s perfection and happiness consists in being moulded by the qualities of God. Although some of the book is rigorously analytical, the author never fails to attract the reader with his profound mystical and ethical insights, which has made this book one of the perennial classics of Muslim thought, popular among Muslims to this day.
