The 99 names of Allah    The text on the iwan ceiling of the Friday mosque at Yazd represents a list of the 99 names of Allah. The list begins at the lower right corner and spirals left around the edge and in towards the middle, the end of the list thus in the center. A large part of the names are easily legible but others are more difficult, there are some errors, miss or alternative spellings.
