The 99 Names of God
An Illustrated Guide for Young and Old. Written and illustrated by Daniel Thomas Dyer, calligraphy by Azim Rehmatdin
The Compassionate (ar-Rahman), the Holy (al-Quddus), the Source of Peace (as-Salam), the Supreme (al-Mutakabbir)…these are just a few of the 99 Names of God to be found in Islam. It has been said that knowledge of Allah’s Beautiful Names is the greatest knowledge a human being can possess.
This illustrated guide to the Names is designed to be an engaging educational resource for all the family. For children it is a rich treasury of wonder that will reveal greater depths as they grow and mature, whilst for parents and teachers it will offer much to inspire, inform, and remind. Richly illustrated and accompanied by engaging reflections and activities, this book is offered as a guide to help us witness the Divine Majesty and Beauty.
Highlighting the beauty and diversity at the heart of Islam, and emphasising the shared core teachings at the heart of the Abrahamic faiths, as well as touching on other religions, this guide gives a holistic, contemporary understanding of Islam for our pluralistic society.
The 99 Names of God is printed on paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) using vegetable-based inks.
