What is the way to worship Allah through His names?
Worshipping Allah with His names or through His names had to be done in accordance with the way that the Prophet (ﷺ) did. Because Islam was revealed to him, he is the one who conveyed Islam to the generation to come, to reach us. He best knew how to worship Allah through His names. As I had mentioned earlier, one of the ways by which we would remember Allah was not to take His name, Allah, and keep repeating it over and over and over again. This was not the way. That is something which people invented. People use it and try to find justification for it, but the bottom line is that Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) did not do it, nor did his companions. So, we know that this practice of repeating Allah’s name Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah…, this practice is falsehood; it is misguidance. It does not bring us closer to Allah; it takes us further away from Allah because Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said,
“I left nothing which would bring you closer to Allah without telling you to do it.”
And that was not among the things that he told us to do.
