Asma-Ul Husna

Todayposters website is honored to present annual poster typography as “Asma Ul Husna” (attributes of God) in every year’s month of holy Ramadan (ninth month of the Islamic calendar; daytime fasts observed by Muslims during this month). The goal of this exhibition is to find out a way to gain favor of the holy God and to understand the holy attributes. “Asma Ul Husna” The Excellent Names “99 Names of Allah” (in Arabic: “Asma Ul Husna”: The Excellent Names) are the epithets of Allah’s attributes mentioned through the The Holy Koran and Hadiths (sayings of The Last Prophet Muhammad [peace of Allah be upon him]). Indeed, the names and attributes referring to Allah in the Koran and sayings of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is more than a hundred. The phrase “Asma Ul Husna” contains the whole of this names and attributes in general meaning. However it is a special term for the 99 Names of Allah in Islamic literature. “Asma Ul Husna” have a very special significance in Islamic belief. Because firstly in the Koran, Allah says: “،The most beautiful names belong to Allah: so call on him by them. (7:180)”. “The Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) again and again instructed and advised his companions to keep their hearts always illuminated with the remembrance of Allah.” In the Koran Allah says: “…and certainly the remembrance of Allah is the greatest, and Allah knows what you do.” (29:45), “Those who believe, and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah: for without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction.” (13:28) So, memorizing or enumerating the Excellent Names of Allah will result in remembering him; remembering him will result in the illumination and goodness of the heart; this good heart will result in the good deeds; and the good deeds will take the person into Paradise by the permission of the Lord Of the worlds Allah. The name of the Owner and Creator of everything is: Allah, the One. Allah, the eternally Besought of all. He begotten not nor was begotten. And there is non comparable unto him. (Koran 112: 1-4) “We can call Him by other sacred names also which are attributive or qualitative with great benefits and blessings. Nevertheless, He must be remembered, or called upon only with one of the names by which the last Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is known to have remembered or called on Him. The reason for this is simple: Allah Almighty is beyond human comprehension and, therefore, to call on Him by names out of one`s own imagination may be unbecoming to His Omnipotence.” It worth mentioning that this is a common issue between all religions and it is not merely limited to Muslims.This had motivated us to bring this exhibition to an international level.
