‘The 99 Names’ is an evocative meditation on the divine Names so familiar to Muslims throughout the world. And just as Buddhist chants resonate widely beyond the borders of their path, the mesmerising sound of this single is finding receptive listeners everywhere. Its simple, chant-like melody is graced by celestial backing vocals and dazzling percussion.  

The immense significance of the profound secrets and wisdom in the 99 Names can never be overstated. Each one is a key that unlocks a mystery. While scholars and sages and poets have plumbed the depths of their meanings for centuries, still the true fullness of their inner meaning waits to be revealed within the individual heart.
