Translator's Note

“Call upon Allah or call upon the Rahman; whichever you call upon, to HU belongs the Most Beautiful Names.”[1]

“…In reality there is nothing in existence but His names”[2]

The Names of Allah, more commonly known as the Divine Names or the Most Beautiful Names, are the loci of manifestation. They are the attributes and relations through which Divine Self-disclosure occurs.

Everything derives its existence and originates from the meanings and structural qualities that are denoted by the Names of Allah; hence, the Names and their manifestations are our only means of knowing the reality of Allah.

Analogously, Muhammad (SAW) says “He who knows himself will know his Rabb[3]”. Since the Divine Names comprise the essence of all things, and the essence of all things is ultimately One, he who knows his essential self will consequently know the One.

In this short book, Ahmed Hulusi takes us down a long corridor with 99 doors and presents a key for each of these doors that opens to our essential core realities. He asserts that each individual manifestation, and hence each person, is composed of a unique configuration of Divine Names. Whether we call upon the door Allah or the door Rahman, whichever door we walk through, they all lead to HU! The only condition being, the abandoning of the constructed illusory self!

If you are willing to give up your limited self to the Unlimited Self and discover the infinite quantum potential within, walk with Ahmed Hulusi through this enchanting corridor and start knocking… for as Rumi says:

“Knock, and He'll open the door

Vanish, and He'll make you shine like the sun

Fall, and He'll raise you to the heavens

Become nothing, and He'll turn you into everything.”
