Three levels of enumerating the names of Allaah

 

Ibn al-Qayyim mentioned three levels of enumerating the names of Allah:

1. The first level, to memorize their words and number.

2. The second level, to understand their meanings and implications.

3.  The third level, to make du’aa (i.e., supplicate) to Allaah with them, this encompasses both supplication of worship and supplication of request.

Badaa’i’ al-Fawaa’id, 1/164
