Notes:

Shaykh Abu’l Maālī Azīzī bin AbdulMalik chose one verse each to illustrate each of the Asmā’ u’l Qur’ān. The verse numbers shown above in double-brackets are those that were selected by him.

Al-Munādī (The Inviter to faith) has been quoted as a name of the Qur’ān although some of the mufassirīn (commentators on the Qur’ān) say it refers to the Beloved Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallāhu alayhi wa Sallam. There is also a difference in interpretation about the names Sirāt u’l Mustaqīm (The Straight Path) and Urwatu’l Wuthqā (The Firm Handhold). Wallāhu wa Rasūluhu Alam (Allāh and His Prophetic Messenger Know Best).

Reminder:

We should remind ourselves of the advice of Imām Abdallāh bin Alawī al-Haddād Rady Allāhu Anhu to recite at least one juz of the Qur’ān everyday.
