Allah exalted be he and why man was created
ALLAH EXALTED BE HE AND WHY MAN WAS CREATED
From the book: Question One: Who is Allah?
Allah (Exalted be He) whose name is mentioned in the beginning of the
chapter and then repeated again in the verse (thanks be to Allah) illustrates us His Proper name.
This is the name of One, Who has the truthful existence and Who deserves to be worshipped and to hold names and titles of perfection cited in the Qur’an.
Allah exclusively holds that name (Exalted be He). Hence, Allah assigned it for declaring His Oneness and yielding to Him. This privilege is also given for His Most beautiful names.
These names are traits which man should follow according to His instinct.
The Most beautiful names were listed in the hadith ” Allah’s Apostle said, “Allah has ninety-nine Names, one-hundred less one; and he who counts them all will enter Paradise.” (To count something means to know it by heart.), narrated by Al-Bukhary)
The names with which people are familiar are mentioned in a hadith narrated by El-Termedhy,”He is Allah, and there is no god but He,
