The Beautiful Names of God

Peace, one and all…

As is perhaps widely known, in the Islamic tradition God is said to possess 99 Names (or Attributes).  It has long been a practice to recite these names as a kind of litany.  Here is one such beautiful rendition, from Egypt.

And here is one of the most beautiful qawwals you will ever be blessed to hear (may God have mercy on you).

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan: Allah Hoo

And here is another beautiful song in praise of God.

Shaam: Il Habib Araftu
