About this title

Synopsis:

Beautifully illustrated with Arabic calligraphy, this book reveals the inner meaning of the 99 attributes or duties of Allah (God).

In the Islamic tradition, there are 99 divine names, or attributes of Allah, such as Ya Jabar, The Repairer; Ya Wadud, The Loving; and Ya Waliy, The Nearest Friend. In this wondrous explanation of the 99 beautiful names, each is written in Arabic with English transliterations for ease of pronunciation, and English translations that probe the depth of meaning within each name.

M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.) explains how God carries out his 99 virtuous duties, and asks that human beings contemplate the nature of God, praise God, and become living examples of His 99 qualities and actions.

About the Author:

Muhammad Raheem Bawa Muhaiyaddeen, a Sufi mystic, can best be remembered for his efforts to bring unity through understanding to the faithful of all religions.

Little is known of his early personal history. Records of his life began in the early 1900's when religious pilgrims traveling through the jungles of Sri Lanka first caught glimpse of a holy man. They were overwhelmed by the depth of divine knowledge that he imparted.

Sometime later a pilgrim invited him to a nearby village, and with that began his public life as a teacher of wisdom.

Throughout Sri Lanka, people from all religious and ethnic traditions would listen to his public discourses. Many consulted him on how to conduct life's affairs, including public figures, politicians, the poor, and the learned.

In 1971 Bawa Muhaiyaddeen accepted an invitation to visit the United States. Here, once again, people from all religious, social and ethnic backgrounds would join to hear him speak. Across the United States, Canada and England, he won recognition from religious scholars, journalists, educators and world leaders. The United Nation's Assistant Secretary General, Robert Muller, asked for Bawa Muhaiyaddeen's guidance on behalf of all mankind. Time Magazine turned to him for clarification during the hostage crisis in 1980. Thousands more were touched by his wise words when interviewed in Psychology Today, the Harvard Divinity Bulletin, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Pittsburgh Press.
