How virtuous is the Knowledge regarding Allaah (Subhana wa Ta’ala).

The most honored and best knowledge is to know Allah’s Beautiful Names and Qualities, because they concern and belong to the Most Honored, and Blessed One Allaah (Subhana wa Ta’ala).

Shaikh-ul-Islam ibn Taymiyyah said: “Allaah’s Names, Qualities, and Actions are mentioned in the Qur’an more than the food, the drinks, and marriage in Paradise.”

The verses which comprise (include) Allaah’s Names and Attributes are higher in status and greater in value than the verses that mention about Resurrection or Paradise, etc.

This is why the greatest verse in the Qur’an is Ayatul-Kursi 2:255, and the greatest Surah is Surat-al-Fatiha (the opening chapter of the Qur’an), and Surat al-Ikhlas (Chapter 112) is considered one-third of the Qur’an.
