99 Names of Allah / Meditating Music

Islam has identified 99 names of Allah. Judaism teaches the 42 and 72 names of God. The Kabbalah is not an evil system as many fundamentalists and conspiracy theorists claim. Evil powers in the world use the "Qlippoth" which is part of the kabbalah tree. The Kabbalah tree is the "knowledge of good and evil". With this tree man attempts to obtain the "tree of life" which is in the seven heavens. Kabbalah is a system where man can ascend into the seven heavens through a process of meditation and chanting holy names. This is called the "merkabah mysticism".

Meditating on the holy names of God enables us to appreciate God and His righteousness. His names have power in Hebrew and Arabic. Using them in prayer helps to obtain God's favour.

Asma-ul-Husna (99 Names of Allah)

Ana B'Koach

The Kabbalists reveal that this sequence of Hebrew letters encompasses the actual power of creation. The Ana B'Koach is built from 42 letters and is also known as the 42 Letter Name of God. Whenever we make a connection the 42 Letter Name, we are tapping into the primordial force of creation."

"Ana BeKoach (Ana BeCoach or Ana B'Koach) prayer was written in the first century by a great kabalistic Rabbi - Rabbi Nehonia. It is said daily at least 3 times, often more, if it's Shabbat or Yontif. [Holy Day.]"

Lecha Dodi

Lecha Dodi, Biblical: Lekhah Dhodhiy) is a Hebrew-language Jewish liturgical song recited Friday at dusk, usually at sundown, in synagogue to welcome Shabbat prior to the Maariv (evening services). It is part of the Kabbalat Shabbat ("acceptance of Sabbath"). (see Wikipedia)

Translation:

Come, my Beloved, to meet the Bride; let us welcome the Shabbat.

"Observe" and "Remember," the one and only G-d caused us to hear in a single utterance; the L-rd is One and His Name is One, for renown, for glory and for praise.

Come, my Beloved...

Come, let us go to welcome the Shabbat, for it is the source of blessing; from the beginning, from aforetime, it was chosen; last in creation, first in [G-d's] thought.

Come, my Beloved...

Sanctuary of the King, royal city, arise, go forth from the ruins; too long have you dwelt in the vale of tears; He will show you abounding mercy.

Come, my Beloved...

Shake the dust off yourself, arise, don your glorious garments --- my people. Through the son of Yishai of Bet Lechem, draw near to my soul and redeem it.
