Hello, I am a Christian but have been studying Islam and find the mystical interior of this misunderstood religion beautiful. In Islam there are said to be ninety-nine divine names of God, but this could be understood metaphorically as meaning that the names are countless but God is the unified source of all being.

'In Qur'anic tradition, there are ninety-nine principle Divine Names, which were revealed by God through His Arabic Qur'an and which attest to the mysterious diversity of attributes within the one Essence. The Arabic form and sound of these names bear the sacremental power of Divine Presence -- healing, protecting, and illuminating the person who invokes them. But names of God have been revealed through other prophetic dispensations that are equally to be respected.'
