These Islamic names are attributes of Allah SWT by which We (Muslims) regard Allah in Islam. Allah has revealed His names repeatedly in the Holy Quran primarily for us to understand who He is and we believe in Allah in accordance with His beautiful names and attributes. We as Muslims cannot expect to worship, love, fear, and trust our Lord, The Almighty Allah if we don’t know who He is.

ALLAH said :

So remember me; I will remember you. Quran 2: 152.

“And to Allah belong the best names, so invoke Him by them…” Qur’an 7:180.

The prophet Muhammad (SAW) said about Asma-Ul-Husna; ALLAH has 99 Names whoever remembers and embraces these names of ALLAH Almighty will go to paradise (Heaven).

Sahih al Bukhari-Book 50 Hadith 894.

Some have specific descriptions of how you’ll recite it and can even become part of your dua (pray) routine.
