CHAPTER: THE NAMES OF ALLAAH, THE EXALTED, AND THE MERIT OF ONE WHO ENUMERATES THEM
Abu Huraira reported Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying: There are ninety-nine names of Allaah; he who commits them to memory would get into Paradise. Verily, Allaah is Odd (He is one, and it is an odd number) and He loves odd number. And in the narration of Ibn 'Umar (the words are):" He who enumerated them."
Abu Huraira reported Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as saying: Verily, there are ninety-nine names for Allaah, i. e. hundred excepting one. He who enumerates them would get into Paradise. And Hammam has made this addition on the authority of Abu Huraira who reported it from Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) that he said:" He is Odd (one) and loves odd number."
