Allah’s names are tools by which we glorify Him and through which we can recognize His grandeur. When saying Dua, add “YA” before the name and remove the “AL.” For example, AR-RAHMAN you say “YA RAHMAN” and NOT “YA AR-RAHMAN.” Translated as the English expression “OH,” the word “YA” indicates that one is calling upon the power and glory of that specific attribute. [Note: DHU changes to DHA when saying Dua]

Allah’s names are all beautiful because they point to His Perfect Power and Absolute Glory. Most of His names can be used alone and many of them are linked with His other names to stress His perfection and absoluteness as in AL-GHAFUR AR-RAHIM (الغفور الرحيم) The Forgiving, The Merciful. Some names are complimentary attributes and they must be always used together, as in ADH-DHAHIR AL-BATIN (الظاهر الباطن) The Manifest, The Hidden. Other names must be associated with the opposite names because they may give a wrong indication if they are used separately, as in AL-KHAFID AR-RAFI (الخافض الرافع) The Abaser, The Raiser. Names which are opposites point that He is fully-capable of controlling the good and the evil.

I also included those that appear to have some explanations and hyperlinked other views whenever available. Since there is no uniform equivalent of some Arabic letters in the English language, transliteration is done how it should be read, as in the beautiful name (الرحيم), AR-RAHIM is written instead of AL-RAHIM. Double vowels are not used because many people tend to read the extra vowel as one syllable. Names not hyperlinked are already included in the name they belong to.
