The Name of Allah Al-Afuw
Almighty Allah says:
He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor, the Fashioner; to Him belong the best names. Whatever is in the heavens and earth is exalting Him. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise. (Al-Hashr 59:27)
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Allah has ninety-nine Names, i.e., one hundred minus one, and whoever believes in their meanings and acts accordingly, will enter Paradise; and Allah is witr (one) and loves ‘the witr‘ (i.e., odd numbers).” (Al-Bukhari)
Dr. Yasir Qadhi continues his commentary on the Beautiful Names and Attributes of Allah Almighty. The Name of Allah, Al-Afuw, occurs in the Quran only five times, four of which are linked with Al-Ghafur, and one is linked with Al-Qadeer Al-Afuw means the One who blots out and leaves no trace of any sin or fault. It also means the One who can remove and obliterate all traces of sin.
