Call Allah by His Names
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 180:
180 The Most Beautiful Names all belong to Allah: so call on Him by them.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 17 Surah Israa verse 110:
110 Say: "Call upon Allah or call upon ‘Ar-Rahmaan;: by whatever Name ye call upon Him (it is well): for to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names. Neither speak thy prayer aloud nor speak it in a low tone, but seek a middle course between."
Ibn Mas'ud reported that the Prophet (saws), said, "If any servant of Allah afflicted with distress or grief makes this supplication, his supplication will be accepted: 'O Allah, I am Your servant, son of Your servant, son of your maidservant. My forehead is in Your hand. Your command conceming me prevails, and Your decision concerning me is just. I call upon You by every one of the Beautiful Names by which You have described Yourself, or which You have revealed in Your book, or have taught anyone of Your creatures, or which You have chosen to keep in the knowledge of the unseen with You, to make the Qur'an the delight of my heart, the light of my breast, and remover of my griefs, sorrows, and afflictions'." A supplication in these words will be answered. Allah will remove one's affliction and replace it with joy and happiness.
Beloved Brother in Islam, not only is it permissible and lawful to call upon the Lord Most High by His Noble and Exclusive Names and Attributes at any time of the day and night one desires, it is highly recommended and encouraged and an extremely preferred Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) that one do so!
Your Question: AND THE SECOND QUESTION IS,,,, THERE IS MUFTI HERE IN my city,,HE SAYS ,THERE IS VERY HEAT IN allah `names. so if you says allah`s name every time, you will feel heat.
To the best of our knowledge there is absolutely no mention in the guidance of the Glorious Quran and the Sunnah regarding the declaration of the brother ‘mufti’ that ‘THERE IS VERY HEAT IN allah `names. so if you says allah`s name every time, you will feel heat.’
The ‘heat’ when calling upon the Blessed Names of Allah is either the brother ‘mufti’s’ own imagination or his opinion and absolutely unrelated to the Truth declared by the Quran and the Sunnah!
Your Question: ….third question is this,this is very important,, tell me the dua, or any deeds,,,which i do and do it in my daily life,,by which allah forgive my sins, allah give good wealth ,health in this life,and allah give paradise.tell me the easy and good things, by doing that thing i can make my duniya and aakhrat good.

Abu Hurairah related that the Prophet (saws) said, "Whoever Glorifies Allah (Subhan-Allah) after every prayer thirty-three times, and Praises Allah (Alhamdolillaah) thirty-three times, and extols Allah's Greatness (Allah-o-Akbar) thirty-three times and then says, 'There is no god except Allah, the One. There is no partner with Him. His is the Dominion and His is the Praise, and He has power over all things,' is forgiven, even if his sins are as abundant as the foam of the sea."

Sumayy reported from Abu Saleh on the authority of Abu Hurairah that the poor emigrants went to the Messenger of Allah (saws) "The wealthy have gotten the high ranks and everlasting bounties." The Prophet (saws) said, "Why is that?" They said, "They pray as we pray and they fast as we fast. (But) they give in charity and we do not give in charity. They free the slaves and we do not free the slaves." The Messenger of Allah (saws) told them, "Shall I teach you something by which you may overtake those who surpass you, by which you will surpass those who will come after you, and none will then be better than you except if he does what you do?" They said, "Certainly, O Messenger of Allah (saws)." He told them, "Glorify Allah (Subhan Allah) thirty-three times, praise Him (Alhamdolillaah) thirty three times, and extol His Greatness (Allah-o-Akbar) thirty-four times."
Abdurahman ibn Ghanim reported that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "Whoever says, 'There is no god but Allah, the One. There is no partner with Him. His is the Dominion and His is the Praise. In his hand is all the good. He gives life and death, and He has power over all things,' ten times after the sunrise and dawn prayer, before turning away and lifting his leg, will have written for him for each repetition ten good deeds, and will have erased for him ten evil deeds. He will also be raised ten degrees, will be protected from every plot, and he will be protected from the outcast Shaytaan. No sin will lead to his destruction except idolatry, and he will be the person with the best deeds, surpassed only by the one who does more and says more than what he has said."

Your Question: …..tell me the easy and good things, by doing that thing i can make my duniya and aakhrat good.
Beloved brother, there might be many a short-cut to obtain success in the life of this short and transitory world…..but the entry to Paradise is restricted only to those who sincerely believe and do righteous good deeds in accordance with the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 79 Surah Naziaat verses 35-41:
35 The Day (of Judgment) when man shall remember (all) that he strove for
36 And Hell-Fire shall be placed in full view for (all) to see
37 Then for such as had transgressed all bounds
38 And had preferred the life of this world
39 The Abode will be Hell-Fire;
40 And for such as had entertained the fear of standing before their Lord's (Tribunal), and had restrained (their) soul from lower desires
41 Their abode will be the Garden.
The one thing which encourages, inspires, and strengthens belief and the doing of good righteous deeds is to constantly develop the fear that, without an iota of a doubt, One Inevitable Day all of mankind will be gathered in the Presence of the Lord to give a full accounting of one’s deeds. It is the constant development and maintenance of this fear or ‘taqwa’ which will entitle one to attain success in the Hereafter.
If one studies the Glorious Quran, one would realize that
more often than not, wherever Allah Subhanah Promises His slaves the
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 133:
133 Be quick in the race for forgiveness from your Lord and for a Garden whose width is that (of the whole) of the heavens and of the earth; prepared for the ‘Muttaqeen’.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 50 Surah Qaaf verses 31-33:
31 And the Garden will be brought nigh to the ‘Muttaqeen’, no more a thing distant.
32 (A voice will say:) "This is what was promised for you, for everyone who turned (to Allah) in sincere repentance who kept (his law).
33 "Who feared (Allah) Most Gracious unseen and brought a heart turned in devotion (to Him):
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 52 Surah Tur verses 17-18:
17 As to the ‘Muttaqeen’ they will be in Gardens and in Happiness
18 Enjoying the (Bliss) which their Lord hath bestowed on them and their Lord shall deliver them from the Penalty of the Fire.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 68 Surah Qalam verse 34:
34 Verily for the ‘Muttaqeen’ are Gardens of Delight in the Presence of their Lord.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 16 Surah Nahl verse 31:
31 Gardens of Eternity which they will enter: beneath them flow (pleasant) rivers: they will have therein all that they wish: thus doth Allah reward the ‘Muttaqeen’
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 25 Surah Furqan verses 15-16:
15 Say: "Is that (fire) better or the eternal Gardens promised to the ‘Muttaqeen’? For them that is a reward as well as a goal (of attainment).
16 "For them there will be therein all that they wish for: they will dwell (there) for aye: a promise to be prayed for from thy Lord."
Thus, in conclusion, my dear and beloved brother in Islam the absolute best way to bring about this reformation in our hearts is to get close to the Remembrance of our Lord Who Created us; and the best way to Remember our Lord is to read, understand, obey, follow and completely submit ourselves to His Glorious Message which He Himself revealed for our guidance, The One and Only Glorious and Noble Quran!
Allah is our witness brother, one who sincerely submits himself to the Glorious Message of their Lord will find that his whole life will become a life spent in the worship and remembrance of His Lord; his prayers, his fasts, his zakat, his Hajj, his work, his relationship with fellow man, in fact, his every single deed will be aligned to earn the Pleasure and Good Will of His Lord Most Gracious, Most Merciful …..and it is this same ‘submission’ which will inspire one to stay away from every single deed which would bring about or ignite the Wrath and Anger and Punishments of the Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
