Most of us would probably have memorised the Asma’ul Husna (Beautiful Names of Allah) via classic nasheeds as a child. But for years I’d wanted to go through them properly and learn the meanings and background, especially in order to include His Names when making du’a.
There are already various online resources for this, eg:
Fun fact: did you know there might be more than 99 names/attributes of Allah? I’ve actually found slight differences in the various lists online, so feel free to do your own research because there are different sources.
My inspiration for creating a “desk calendar”-style tool was this Hadith calendar which I’ve purchased. I am a big fan of these automatic visual learning tools: I place the calendar somewhere we’d see it daily, like on a dresser in the bedroom and sooner or later you’d end up memorising what’s on it!
I’ve created these to be printed on A4 pages, two names to a sheet. You can also just use these as flash cards. I highly recommend adding the meaning/translation either on the cards or behind them.
