Abū Muḥammad b. Ḥazm said: they (i.e. the scholars) agreed that the names annexed to Allah, like ʿAbd Allah, ʿAbd al-Raḥmān and their likes, are good.

قَالَ أَبُو مُحَمَّد بن حزم اتَّفقُوا على اسْتِحْسَان الْأَسْمَاء المضافة إِلَى الله كَعبد الله وعب الرَّحْمَن

al-Fuqahāʾ (ie: the experts of fiqh) disagreed which names are the most beloved to Allah.

وَمَا أشبه ذَلِك فقد اخْتلف الْفُقَهَاء فِي أحب الْأَسْمَاء إِلَى الله

al-Jamhūr (ie: the majority of scholars) agreed that ʿAbd Allah and ʿAbd al-Raḥmān are the most beloved.

فَقَالَ الْجُمْهُور أحبها إِلَيْهِ عبد الله وَعبد الرَّحْمَن

Saʿīd b. al-Musayyib said that the most beloved names (to Allah) are the names of al-anbiyāʾ (ie: the prophets).

قَالَ سعيد بن الْمسيب أحب الْأَسْمَاء إِلَيْهِ أَسمَاء الْأَنْبِيَاء

The sound ḥadīth proves that the most beloved names to Allah are ʿAbd Allah and ʿAbd al-Raḥmān.

والْحَدِيث الصَّحِيح يدل على أَن أحب الْأَسْمَاء إِلَيْهِ عبد الله وَعبد الرَّحْمَن
