18 4 Names For Discussion العفو - Al-Afuww الرافع - Ar-Rāfi'
البارئ - Al-Bāri' الهادي - Al-Hādi

19 العفو - Al-Afuww Meaning: The pardoner
Ayat: Whether you reveal a good act or keep it hidden, or pardon an evil act, Allah is Ever-Pardoning, All-Powerful. ( Surat an-Nisa', 4:149) Recommended Dua: Repeat ya ‘Afw frequently for forgiveness

20 العفو - Al-Afuww Lesson(s) Learned:
People are fallible beings who may at any time think erroneously, make a wrong decision, or display a flawed attitude. But Allah, Who is fully aware of these mistakes, forgives them. If He were not so forgiving, no soul would ever attain Paradise . 

21 الرافع - Ar-Rāfi' Meaning: The exalter
Ayat: Mention Idris in the Book. He was a true man and a Prophet. We raised him up to a high place. (Surah Maryam, 19:56-57) Recommended Dua: Recite Ya Rafi’ 100x on Thursday and Sunday night to attain a higher sense of honour, richness and merit.

22 الرافع - Ar-Rāfi' Lesson(s) Learned: Throughout history, Allah has sent Messengers to all societies to convey His commands, prohibitions, and recommendations. In this way, He calls upon people who are far from religion to abandon their ignorance and lack of knowledge and then grants them another opportunity to follow the straight path. In return for their sincerity and trust, Allah made them distinguished both in this world and in the Hereafter.

23 البارئ - Al-Bāri' Meaning: The maker of harmony
Ayat: He is Allah—the Creator, the Maker , the Giver of Form. To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names. Everything in the heavens and Earth glorifies Him. He is the Almighty, the All-Wise. ( Surat al-Hashr, 59:24). Recommended Dua: Recite ya ‘Baari’ frequently and hard work should become easy. For conceiving fast for 7 days and break fast with ‘Ya Khaaliq, Ya Baari’, Ya Musawwiru’ 21 times.

24 البارئ - Al-Bāri' Lesson(s) Learned: The universe is based upon equilibrium and harmony. As scientific developments reveal more of its mysteries, we learn more about this equilibrium and harmony. The universe, and thus life on Earth, exists only because our Lord creates things in conformity with one another.

25 الهادي - Al-Hādi Meaning: The Guide
Ayat: And so that those who have been given knowledge will know it is the truth from their Lord and have faith in it, and their hearts will be humbled to Him. Allah guides those who believe to a straight path. (Surat al-Hajj, 22:54) Recommended Dua: Repeat Ya Haadi frequently to gain spiritual knowledge.

26 الهادي - Al-Hādi Lesson(s) Learned: There are two kinds of people: those who know and so can appreciate Allah's power, and those who do not. The latter lead an ordinary life and die. Allah guides the members of the first group. Although they have always remained a minority, their way has always been the right one. (Inshallah we are guided to be amongst this group).

27 Other benefits of Allah`s Names
It is known that the recitation of Allah`s names brings shifa` to the believers. E.g`s include: Backbone - Al Jabbar (The Compeller) Heart Muscle – Al Razaqq (The Sustainer) Cancer – Al Jalil (The Mighty) Migraine – Al Ghani (The Rich One) Womb - Al Khaliq (The Creator) Blood Pressure – Al Khafed (The Abaser) Method of treatment: Lay your hands on the place of pain and praise Allah (SWT) names above according to your disease until the pain heals or cure away inshallah.

28 What Have I Learned There are lessons to be learned from the names of Allah There are many physical benefits from the repetition of the names of Allah There are many spiritual benefits from the repetition of the names of Allah The names of Allah are related to us through the Quran in various verses In any situation, we can always turn to Allah and his names for a solution

29 Next Steps Learn about the benefits of the other names of Allah
Teach my children and others of the benefits of the names

30 My comments: Shahida I loved the way you approach the Asmaa by defining the whole picture and then focussing on the 4 qualities. I also enjoyed the lessons learnt from each area. Slide 27 expands your prospect to include other aspects of Allah’s names and puts in thoughts that it as an area one could further explore. That was a great idea!  Do you mind including as slide 30 (excluding my comments, the references where you got your information. This information will be useful for people as when I finally post these projects on the website it would be useful for people it will become a point of reference for those who wish to further pursue this topic. Great work Shahida! I always knew you had the potential; however your work has gone beyond my expectations. Good job and keep up with it
