Description from the publisher:

The purpose of our creation; as Allah tells us in the Qur'an; is worship: 'And I have not created jinn or mankind except to worship Me.' (51:56) The Companion 'Abdullah Ibn 'Abbas ; the preeminent exegete for whom the Prophet Muhammad s prayed 'O Allah; teach him the interpretation of the Scripture;' said about this verse; 'Except to worship me means: Except to know Me.' To endeavor to know Allah is to fulfill the very purpose of our existence; and to know Him is to know His beautiful names; attributes; and acts. In this work; taken from his large exegesis of Sura al-Fatiha; Ibn ¢Ajiba details the meanings of Allah's Ninety-Nine Beautiful Names (al-Asma' al-Husna) and shows readers how to come closer to Allah through the three-fold path of connection; inculcation; and realization: to connect to each of the divine names; to inculcate their meanings in ethics and character; and to attain realization of them; beyond repetition; rote memory; or theoretical discussion. In this commentary; readers can get a glimpse of the transformative power of knowing the Creator through His Ninety-Nine Beautiful Names; about which the Prophet Muhammad s has said; 'To Allah belongs ninety-nine names; whosoever enumerates them fully shall enter the Garden.' (al-Bukhari)
