99 names

99 Names: Ar-Rahman and Ar-Raheem

OK, so I've managed to keep this going into week two and, as a bonus, I am looking at 2 of Allah's (swt) Names at the same time. Why? Well, these two often come as a pair and it would be rude to welcome in one guest and leave the other at the door. Also, if I deal with the Names one at a time, at this rate it will take 2 years and I hope to be in Paradise by then already!

99 Names of Allah

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

"Allah has ninety-nine names, one hundred less one. He who memorises them all by heart will enter Paradise."

[Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 93, Number 489]

Woooo! found and easy shortcut to Paradise!

I can remember WAY over 100 Arsenal player's names from the last few years, as well as what position they played, probably even their squad numbers, and remember which games they scored important goals in etc etc etc.

And I can remember WAY over 100 singers/artists/bands from my iTunes, along with being able to recognise their songs and which album each song is from etc etc etc
