Making zikr of any of the 99 names of Allah Ta’ala a certain amount of times

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it permissible to make zikr of any of the 99 names of Allah a certain amount of times eg 1000 ect, or having a gathering wherein everyone recited 41 Yaseens?

Bismillaah

A: Just as it is permissible to make zikr of the word ‘Allah’ it is equally permissible to make zikr of His other names. To recite Yaseen any amount of times is also permissible.

إِنَّ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَالْمُسْلِمَاتِ وَالْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ وَالْقَانِتِينَ وَالْقَانِتَاتِ وَالصَّادِقِينَ وَالصَّادِقَاتِ وَالصَّابِرِينَ وَالصَّابِرَاتِ وَالْخَاشِعِينَ وَالْخَاشِعَاتِ وَالْمُتَصَدِّقِينَ وَالْمُتَصَدِّقَاتِ وَالصَّائِمِينَ وَالصَّائِمَاتِ وَالْحَافِظِينَ فُرُوجَهُمْ وَالْحَافِظَاتِ وَالذَّاكِرِينَ اللَّـهَ كَثِيرًا وَالذَّاكِرَاتِ أَعَدَّ اللَّـهُ لَهُم مَّغْفِرَةً وَأَجْرًا عَظِيمًا ﴿الأحزاب: ٣٥﴾
