Interesting fact: Moslems believe that God (Allah) has 100 names, 99 known to us and the hundredth known only to the camel, and their 'prayer beads' or 'worry beads' are made up of 33 beads they finger three times around calling God by these 99 names, 'the Beneficent, the Merciful,' etc.

Arab Muslims have a saying that Allah has 100 names; man knows 99 of these names, but only the camel knows the 100th name of Allah.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: 'To God belongs 99 names, 100 minus 1, anyone who memorizes them will enter Paradise; He (God) is odd (odd number, he is the Only One), and He loves odd numbers (such as 99)'
