This book tells what the 99 Names of Allah mean, in a language suitable for children. The texts try to explain what every name refers to in our lives, through talking about the Arabic roots of the word, constucting analogies, giving examples from Surahs, using opposites to let children understand Islamic conception of Allah better, and so on. The author of the book is Hekimoglu Ismail, a scholar who has been in the effort of teaching Islam to people for more than 50 years. His experience of how people, especially kids, can understand Islamic values better is to be benefited from.
Allah says that his goal of creating the humankind was to be known. His names and the meanings of those names are the first steps to know him. This makes teaching Al-Asma al Husna to children really important as they will get a conception of features of their creator, taking a step closer to him.
