Ahmed Ali

All the names of God are beautiful, so call Him by them; and leave those alone who act profanely towards His names: They will be retributed for their deeds.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (allah's are the fairest names) the loftiest attributes: knowledge, power, hearing, sight, and the like. (invoke him by them) recite by them.

(they will be requited) in the hereafter for (what they do) and say in the life of this world.
