How many meanings do the Most Perfect Names of Allaah denote?
Question:

How many meanings do the Most Perfect Names of Allaah denote?
Answer:

They are of three types:

  1. The meaning of the Essence, with which the Names agree and are in conformity to.
  2. Indication of Attributes derived from the Names directly, through that which they imply.

  3. Indication of Attributes which are not derived from the Names directly, but through that which they necessitate.
