In this post I will explain what is Ism-e-Azam. I will also explain the Importance and benefits of reciting it. First of all I want to explain what it means for those of you who do not understand. This Ism for your name is derived from Asma Ul Husna as below.
In the below verse from Sura Al Araaf, Allah suggests to call him by his names from Asma Ul Husna.
If we look deeper in the translation of this verse, It also said that leave those people who go beyond the limits while using these names. Many people only think of the first part of any advise from Quran but do not consider what is being said after that and follow the first thing blindly. we do not think that there might be some restrictions or conditions in what they are doing.
So who are these people who go beyond regarding Asma Allah. In my opinion and what I have read from Tafseer books is these people are the ones who misuse these names. Definitely these names are very powerful and you can do a lot of things by reciting different combinations of these names just to achieve what might not be possible in this physical world.
I know you might be confused at this time but let me explain. You have heard about Prophet Solomon and The Queen of Saba. It is said that the person who brought Queen’s Throne to Prophet Solomon in a matter of seconds, used Ism-e-Azam. The only purpose of narrating this over here is to make you understand the power of Asma Ul Husna.
Now, what does that mean. Well at the time of our beloved Prophet Mohammad Peace be Upon Him, Sahaba asked the same question from the Prophet. He replied that there are two names of Allah that come in only three Surah of Quran and both these names are mentioned together in all three Surahs. These are called Isma Azam.
I am not going to tell you what these names are as they require some special conditions to recite which I am also not familiar with. I can only tell you that the person who brought Queen’s Throne to Prophet Solomon probably knew these names and the way to recite them.
So why I have told you all this. Well I want to clear some misunderstanding that people have regarding Ism-a-azam. The Isme Azam I was discussing above are the two Special names of Allah that If you call Him by these names in the correct way, Anything can be accomplished which might be out of this world and that also If you survive after reciting and know the procedure well. But I believe the purpose of many people reading this post would be to know something that will get them closer to Allah so all there problems can go away. Well this is what I am talking about. To know the Ism-e-Azam that corresponds to your name and recite it. Reading those names would be more powerful than reading any other Asma ul Husna and you will get the benefits very quickly Insha Allah. Many Aulia Karaam and today’s Scholars agree on the fact that every person has its own Ism-e-Azam that he can recite so that his prayers will be accepted in no time. Even Prophets had their names selected from asma ul Husna that they used to read frequently and many verses from Quran can be found explaining this fact.
Let me tell you the Process how it works. Every Arabic Alphabet has a number assigned to it. Those who know Numerology will know what I am talking about. By adding all the numbers together in one name of Allah from Asma ul Husna, we come up with a total of lets say 100.
Now we derive the total for your own name as well. lets say it came to be 150. now we have to find a name from Asma Ul Husna whose total numbers would also be 150. If there is none, then find two names whose total come up as 150. this way you will have your Isme Azam as two names from asma ul Husna that is equal to the total number of your name.
Now to add some more complexity to the process, let me tell you that there are two kinds of Asma ul Husna. One is called Jalali and the other is Jamali. A simple explanation is do not recite Jalali names as not everyone can bear the affects. It will first test you on your Imaan and If its week, you will break. In Simple words it takes you on a journey to be a Wali ullah and if you know the process of being a Wali, Its not a smooth ride. Also you might not be able to bear the affects of Jalali names as your heart will start to drown and you might loose consciousness.
While Jalali names mostly call for Allah’s Glory (Jalaal), Jamali names mostly call for his Mercy and kindness. I only derive these names for from Jamali Isma so any one can recite them. Once you start to use these names you would want to recite them more and more. I have given these names to many people and every one said that they liked what they were reading and wanted to do it as much time as possible. These names will calm you and will give you inner satisfaction Insha Allah. At the same time you are calling The Merciful, which will get his attention to you. Very Very Powerful.
