Tafseer Asmaa Allaah al Husnaa.
Firstly: In this book, the Shaykh, may Allaah have mercy upon him, does not restrict himself to those who preceded him in the topic of Allaah’s Beautiful Names. The editor mentions in his introduction that he has found the explanation of some of Allaah’s Names that he has not come across in previous books, there are also some of Allaah’s names that were mentioned in previous books that as Sa’dee has not explained in this book. An example of this is that he explained Allaah’s Name ‘As Sattaar’, a Name that was not mentioned in the Hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah, or any other narration according to the knowledge of the editor, which shows that the Shaykh did not restrict himself to the Names of Allaah that were mentioned in this Hadeeth and Allaah knows best.
Secondly: Amongst the issues that makes this book stand out, is that the Shaykh gives a lot of attention to the principles of Allaah’s Names and Attributes
Thirdly: The Shaykh included Allaah’s Names that are made up of more than one word, such as ‘Badee’ as Samawaat wal Ard’, ‘Dhul Jalaal wal Ikraam’, ‘Al Fa’aal lima Yureed’ and others.
Fourhtly: The Shaykh explains the apparent meaning of the Names of Allaah, then delves into their meanings in relation to Eemaan, and explains the effect of the Name on a person’s Eemaan. He also pays little attention to the linguistic meanings and definitions of the Names. This is what distinguishes this book from the rest of the explanations of Allaah’s Beautiful Names.
