Muslims have inherited a list of the 99 names
And they call the names of Allah
But school-Azhar has transformed some of these names
Why change ???

There are countless Names of Allah(swt). Many more than what a person could say in 1000 lifetimes.

Asmāʾu l-Lāhi l-Ḥusnā "Beautiful Names of God") are what some consider tp be the 99 most Beautiful names of Allah(swt)

While there are more than 99 in the Qur;an it is sunnah to recite what one believes to be the 99 most beatiful. as this is somewhat personal opinion there are variations in individual listing.

TheMost popular used names are those easiest to be sung as a Nasheed,

There is no command as to which 99 names are chosen from the Qur'an as there are more than 99 to choose from.

There is no agreed upon list as to which 99 names are to be used and several listing are in common listing.

While it is sunnah to repeat the Asmāʾu l-Lāhi l-Ḥusnā , it is not fiqh and not required. also there is no requirement as to which listing is used only that one chooses 99 names that are found in the Qur'an or Sunnah there are over 100

OK
You say that God has many names
Islamic heritage in which 99
1400 a year ago

Muslims know these names, including the harmful
But Azhar did not add to these names
Azhar has to change and modify these names
There is a big difference between the amendment and added
Harmful=This name his number 91

there are over 100 names for God(swt) in the Qur'an alone. There is no requirement if one has to say 99 of them no reason a person could say mor or less than 99. It is Traditional to say 99, that is tradition not a requirement of Islam.

While the 99 bead dhiker are to help memorize 99 names there is nothing wrong if a person simply says Allaah(swt) 99times.

The word that was translated to "memorize" in Arabic is "أحصى": to enumerate. So the scholars say this reward is not just for memorization, but living by them, making supplication (du'a) according to them and so on.

The reality is that Allah does not have just 99 names. These are 99 special names that we do not know about. Although there is a hadith which mentions 99 specific names in the collection of al-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah, the scholars of hadith ruled that addition to be weak
(source: Hadith - Chapters on Supplication - Jami` at-Tirmidhi - Sunnah.com - Sayings and Teachings of Prophet Muhammad (??? ???? ???? ? ???) and Hadith - Book of Supplication - Sunan Ibn Majah - Sunnah.com - Sayings and Teachings of Prophet Muhammad (??? ???? ???? ? ???)).

The reason we don't know about these names, is that we are encouraged to learn all of Allah's names and use them (make supplication with them, etc.) There are definitely more than 100 names in the Qur'an and Sunnah (I believe the figure is close to 150, I would have to double-check). In actuality Allah's names are infinite, according to this Hadith:
asma ul husna - Why does Allah (SWT) have 99 names? - Islam Stack Exchange

Hadith on Asmaul Husna
It was narrated by Abu Hurairah ra that the Prophet pbuh said:For Allah is 99 names, 100 except 1, a person do not memorize it except he enters paradise (ie. whoever memorizes it will enter paradise), and He ( Allah ) is One and He loves odd numbers.( Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim )
-
This is the most authentic version of the hadith. In the narration of Tirmizhi, it states the 99 names of Allah SWT in the hadith and those names are actually inserted into the hadith and those insertions have been refuted and rejected by scholars of hadith. The hadith by Tirmizhi was narrated by Al Walid Ibn Muslim, from Shu'aib Ibn Abi Hamzah. The great scholars of hadith state that the insertion of the Names was done by Al Walid Ibn Muslim who had compiled this hadith from his teachers.All the other narrations which mentions the virtues of memorizing the 99 Names of Allah SWT did not mention or state these Names.
MOHD KAMAL MOKHTAR: Are the Names of Allah Limited to 99 Names Only?

What Are the 99 Names of Allah?
The Qur’an commands Muslims to call on Allah by his “most beautiful names”:

Qur’an 7:180—The Most Beautiful Names belong to Allah: So call on Him by them; But shun such men as use profanity in His names: For what they do, they will soon be requited.


In the Hadith, Muhammad says that there are 99 names of Allah, and that anyone who memorizes the list of names will be awarded paradise:

Sahih Muslim 6475—Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger as saying: There are ninety-nine names of Allah; he who commits them to memory would get into Paradise. Verily, Allah is Odd (He is one, and it is an odd number) and He loves odd number.


However, there are more than 99 names of Allah found in the Qur’an and the Hadith, and Muhammad never delivered an official list to his followers. This makes it impossible to know which specific names are included among the 99 names. Yet there is general agreement among Muslims concerning most of Allah’s names. Hence, compilations of the 99 names of Allah will agree on the vast majority of the following epithets.

What in the world is the rational purpose for such a thing? Imagine if the main character in a book had 99 names! What a mess that would be! And why memorize them? Why in the world would a creator of the universe want such a thing done? Why would memorizing names be a ticket to the orgy?

In Arabic names are attributes. for example my Islamic name is Abdullah Muhammad Abdullah means "Slave of Allah" Muhammad is derived from Ahmad which is derived from Hamid and related to "Praise' traditionally it is the name given to the first born son in a Muslim family it may also be selected by a revert to Islam.

When one "Learns / Memorizes" the 99 names they are also to emulate the attribute of each. the concept of learning to an Arabic speaker includes the trying to acquire the attribute.

this is not an Islamic requirement and the names were not told to us. We do suspect they are among the 160+ attributes named in the Qur'an.

The Name Allaah(swt) is not used as it means all of the attributes those we know and the infinite number do not know. Many ultra fundamentalist Muslims forbid recitation of the 99 names as they claim it is mindless chanting with no purpose. Recitation and other forms of dhiker are very popular among Sufi. When I was still able to hear I enjoyed listening to the Asmaul Husna by hisham abbas

The Name Allaah(swt) is not used as it means all of the attributes those we know and the infinite number do not know. Many ultra fundamentalist Muslims forbid recitation of the 99 names as they claim it is mindless chanting with no purpose. Recitation and other forms of dhiker are very popular among Sufi. When I was still able to hear I enjoyed listening to the Asmaul Husna by hisham abbas

So these are attributes of allah? That allah gives himself? Allah made these up for himself? Why? How can there be an infinite number of names? That's not possible.

For a finite being it is impossible. for aninfinite being it is a necessity thith infinite. Looking at the created universe there is almost an uncountable number of planets, many of which will be populated by other sapient ch created to match specific circumstances, these in turn bringing out attributes of Allaah(swt) given that the universe is very probably constantly being destroyed and recreated and will continue doing so for eternity. The attributes of Allaah(swt) will be constantly added to.

When one "Learns / Memorizes" the 99 names they are also to emulate the attribute of each. the concept of learning to an Arabic speaker includes the trying to acquire the attribute.

this is not an Islamic requirement and the names were not told to us. We do suspect they are among the 160+ attributes named in the Qur'an.

Al-Warith (الوارث) The Inheritor of All
How inherit eternal God
المنتقم) The Avenger How you believe in avenger

I wish you to think carefully about these names
