We need to understand the meaning of each name and memorize it.
Allah says: “Allah has ninety-nine names, i.e., one hundred minus one, and whoever memorizes them will enter Paradise.”
To memorize them we need to follow these steps:
(1) memorizing the names themselves.
(2) Understanding the meaning of each one.
(3) Acting upon what they imply.
(4) Calling upon Allah by these names.

So if a person knows that Allah is One, he will not associate anything else with Allah. If he knows that Allah is the Provider, he will not seek provision from anyone else. If he knows that Allah is the Most Merciful, he will do acts of obedience that are a means of attaining Allah’s mercy. So what if Allah is everything, all the attributes, and names, this is the meaning of Names Of Allah.
