There are many different names of “Laa ilaaha illAllaah” found in the Qur’an and Sunnah. The scholars have pointed out almost 30 different names in the Qur’an, let alone the Sunnah. However, in this post we will suffice with mentioning just 10 names from the Qur’an:

1. Kalimah At-Tayyibah (The Good Word)

إِلَیۡهِ یَصۡعَدُ ٱلۡكَلِمُ ٱلطَّیِّبُ وَٱلۡعَمَلُ ٱلصَّـٰلِحُ یَرۡفَعُهُۥۚ

“To Him ascends good speech, and righteous work raises it”

Faatir: 10

2. Kalimah At-Taqwaa (The Word of Piety)

فَأَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ سَكِينَتَهُۥ عَلَىٰ رَسُولِهِۦ وَعَلَى ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَأَلْزَمَهُمْ كَلِمَةَ ٱلتَّقْوَىٰ وَكَانُوٓا۟ أَحَقَّ بِهَا وَأَهْلَهَا ۚ

“Then Allah sent down His Sakinah (calmness and tranquillity) upon His Messenger (SAW) and upon the believers, and made them stick to the word of piety (i.e. none has the right to be worshipped but Allah)”

Al-Fath: 26

3. Kalimah Al-Baaqiyah (The Remaining Word)

 وَإِذۡ قَالَ إِبۡرَٰهِيمُ لِأَبِيهِ وَقَوۡمِهِۦٓ إِنَّنِي بَرَآءٞ مِّمَّا تَعۡبُدُونَ ۝ إِلَّا ٱلَّذِي فَطَرَنِي فَإِنَّهُۥ سَيَهۡدِينِ ۝ وَجَعَلَهَا كَلِمَةَۢ بَاقِيَةٗ فِي عَقِبِهِۦ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَرۡجِعُونَ

“And [mention, O Muhammad], when Abraham said to his father and his people, “Indeed, I am disassociated from that which you worship

Except for He who created me; and indeed, He will guide me.”

And he made it a word remaining among his descendants that they might return [to it].”

Az-Zukhruf: 26-28

4. Kalimah Al-‘Ulyaa (The Lofty Word)

وَجَعَلَ كَلِمَةَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ ٱلسُّفۡلَىٰۗ وَكَلِمَةُ ٱللَّهِ هِيَ ٱلۡعُلۡيَاۗ وَٱللَّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

“and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowest, while the word of Allah – that is the highest. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.”

Tawbah: 40

5. Al-‘Urwah Al-Wuthqaa (The Most Trustworthy Hand-hold)

فَمَن يَكۡفُرۡ بِٱلطَّـٰغُوتِ وَيُؤۡمِنۢ بِٱللَّهِ فَقَدِ ٱسۡتَمۡسَكَ بِٱلۡعُرۡوَةِ ٱلۡوُثۡقَىٰ لَا ٱنفِصَامَ لَهَاۗ

“Whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break.”

Al-Baqarah: 256

6. Kalimah As-Sidq (The Word of Truth)

وَٱلَّذِي جَآءَ بِٱلصِّدۡقِ وَصَدَّقَ بِهِۦٓ أُوْلَـٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلۡمُتَّقُونَ

“And he (Muhammad SAW) who has brought the truth (this Quran and Islamic Monotheism) and (those who) believed therein (i.e. the true believers of Islamic Monotheism), those are Al- Muttaqun (the pious and righteous persons)”

Zumar: 33

7. Kalimah Al-Ikhlaas (The Word of Sincerity)

قُلۡ إِنِّيٓ أُمِرۡتُ أَنۡ أَعۡبُدَ ٱللَّهَ مُخۡلِصٗا لَّهُ ٱلدِّينَ

“Say, [O Muhammad], “Indeed, I have been commanded to worship Allah, [being] sincere to Him in religion.”

Zumar: 11

8. Kalimah Al-Islaam (The Word of Islaam)

وَمَنۡ أَظۡلَمُ مِمَّنِ ٱفۡتَرَىٰ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ ٱلۡكَذِبَ وَهُوَ يُدۡعَىٰٓ إِلَى ٱلۡإِسۡلَٰمِۚ وَٱللَّهُ لَا يَهۡدِي ٱلۡقَوۡمَ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ

“And who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah untruth while he is being invited to Islam. And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.”

As-Saff: 7

9. Kalimah Al-Haqq

إِلَّا مَن شَهِدَ بِٱلۡحَقِّ وَهُمۡ يَعۡلَمُونَ

“but only those who testify to the truth [can benefit], and they know.”

Az-Zukhruf: 86

10. Al-Qawl Ath-Thaabit (The Firm Word)

يُثَبِّتُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ بِٱلۡقَوۡلِ ٱلثَّابِتِ فِي ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا وَفِي ٱلۡأٓخِرَةِۖ

“Allah keeps firm those who believe, with the firm word, in worldly life and in the Hereafter.”

Ibrahim: 27
