assalam alaykum, i was a reading a book which said that the only way a person can obtain proper tazkiyah and come closer to Allah is through knowing Him by His names and attributes. this is due to the fact that a person will not love, fear, want to come close to "someone/something" they do not know, so knowing Allah will automatically make us want to co know Him more etc... my questions is: what is meant by knowing Allah through His names and attributes? i mean most of the sisters i know, what they do in halaqah's is that they give out the 99 names of Allah and memorise them and obviously it's supposed to help you know Allah more but is that it? the author also mentioned that pondering over the verses of the quran, especially those that end with Allah's names/attributes such as al-aziz al-hakim etc. and understanding the context they are in helps achieve this. or does he mean perhaps studying aqeedah? if someone can help that would be great inshallah.
