Great Effects of knowing the names and attributes of Allaah upon the servant’s life

The slave should believe in the names of Allaah, the beautiful names of Allaah and the perfect attributes of Allaah that have been found in the Qur’aan and the Sunnah and he should use them to supplicate to Allaah

وَلِلَّهِ الأسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَى فَادْعُوهُ بِهَا وَذَرُوا الَّذِينَ يُلْحِدُونَ فِي أَسْمَائِهِ
And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allaah, so call on Him by them, and leave the company of those who belie or deny His Names.

قُلِ ادْعُوا اللَّهَ أَوِ ادْعُوا الرَّحْمَنَ أَيًّا مَا تَدْعُوا فَلَهُ الأسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَى
Say: Invoke Allaah or invoke the Most Beneficent by whatever Name you invoke Him it is the same, for to Him belong the Best Names.

The greater amount of knowledge that the servant has about Allaah and His Names and His Attributes then the greater his fear will be of Allaah (سبحانه و تعالى) and the more mindful he will be of Allaah (سبحانه و تعالى) and this will cause him to distance himself from disobeying Allaah (سبحانه و تعالى) and falling into that which Allaah dislikes.

As some of the Salaf used to say,
“Whoever knows Allaah
(سبحانه و تعالى) the best then he will be the one who fears Allaah          (سبحانه و تعالى) the most.”

With regards to some of the benefits of knowing Allaah (سبحانه و تعالى) and knowing his Names and His Attributes, if we believe that Allaah (سبحانه و تعالى) is Samiun, Basheerun, Aleemun, the All-Seeing, the All-Hearing, All-Knowing, and that nothing in the heavens and the earth is hidden from Him and that Allaah (سبحانه و تعالى) knows that which is done in private and that which is hidden and He knows even when a person blinks their eye and that which a person hides in their chest, if we believe that Allaah (سبحانه و تعالى) is like this, then we will be constantly mindful of Allaah, that Allaah sees us, He will cause us to control our tongue, it will cause us to safeguard our body parts and prevent them from disobeying Allaah. It will cause us to monitor our hearts, and try and protect our hearts from everything that is not pleasing to Allaah.
