Have you ever asked yourself about the 100th name for God/Allah?
It has never occured to me
TO EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
For I have always heard that in Islam God has 99 name
I have never been interested enough to know the 99 names
which are mostly attributes of God
Like The Merciful, The King, The Creator, The light, …
I found the question about whether there is a 100th name or not
The concept in itself is exciting enough for me,
Like when I discovered Lilith (The first woman of Adam) 😛
The main character of Amin’s Novel: Balthasar
Go in a journey from Jubail in lebanon to Istanbul in Turkey
looking after a book that is rumored to have in it the 100th name of God
and in which some claim
That Prophet Noah knew tha name
and that is how he was able to save himself and his family from the flood
just by saying the 100th miraculous name of God
Amin’s novel time set is in 17th century
Precisely in 1665
Where a lot of people believed that in 1666
The year of the monster (666 the number of Satan in the bible)
is the year of the end of the world
(for us it was 2000, remember?)
All were looking for the 100th name of God
To save themselves!
I heard once a christian claim that
in Islam God has 99 names, non of them is The Lover
For some christians, God is Love, according to the verse in the bible
and reading the novel
I had to wonder
If there is really a lost name of God
Which is Love?
Love can make miracles
don’t you think so?
Is there a chance any of the above has some truth in it?
