Many people come with this question ‘’is 99 the final number for Allah’s names?” Here the answer is, though there are 99 names mentioned in the Quran it does not mean that this is the final number for attributes of Allah.  

Imam An-Nawawi said:

“Scholars have agreed that this hadith does not signify the total number of His Names – The Most High, and it does not mean that He has no other names than the mentioned ninety-nine (names) here. What is meant here is that whoever internalized these ninety-nine Names will enter paradise.”

Allah Has a lot of other names according to this hadith;

‘’I call upon You by every single Beautiful Name with which You have described Yourself with, or which You have revealed in Your Book, or You have taught to any of Your creations, or which You have chosen to keep in the knowledge of the unseen with You’’
[(Musnad Ahmad)]

It has been clear now that ninety-nine is not the final number for names of Almighty Allah. Allah has a lot of other amazing and excellent names that represent His specifications and mastery in all.
