I created this 99 names of Allah word search puzzle for my children during the last 10 days of Ramadan in observance of Laylat Al Qadr (Arabic: لیلة القدر).
This special night, also called the Night of Power, is thought of as the night when the Quran was first sent down from Heaven and occurs on one of the odd-numbered nights of the last ten days of Ramadan.
One of the ways to receive the benefits of this night is to perform a remembrance of Allah through dhikr (Arabic: ذِكْر,), Islamic devotional acts, in which phrases or prayers are repeated. Sometimes the content of the prayers includes the names of Allah, of which there are 99. These are known as ʾasmāʾu llāhi l-ḥusnā (Arabic: أسماء الله الحسنى, Beautiful Names of Allah).
While there is no universal agreement among Muslims as to what exactly counts as a name of God, and what does not, I created this list that was a little more child friendly and had words that they might be familiar with already from reading their Quran.
