The 99 Names of Allah

Imam Fode Drame


In this uplifting and enlightening work Imam Fode Drame gives an in depth explanation of God’s 99 names. He first categorizes these names as God’s personal name, God’s names of quality or God’s names of action.  He then carefully explains each name’s meaning, relating each name to timeless spiritual truths. This is the first work of its kind in that Imam Drame reveals how each name allows us to better understand the message of the Qur’an.


This book is a seminal addition to books on the ‘Asma al Husna’ available in the English language, as it not only explains each name according to classical doctrine, but also deeply ties into Quranic exegesis that Imam Fode teaches; thus it is a work that is foundational for spiritual growth.
