The Most Beautiful Names of God : 99 Names of Allah

The Quran is miraculous in such a way that it points to scientific issues and explains scientific subjects that could not have been known about in the 7th century. This Book answers such questions as where we came from, why we exist and what we should do. This Book describes the existence, the unity, the power and the mercy of God. The Quran speaks of God, and introduces God as the Merciful, the Creator and the Forgiver. The description of God is the most important message of the Quran.
