Permissibility of the Dhikr of Allah(mighty and majestic is He) with His Singular Name

From Fath al-mulhim of Shabbir Ahmad al-Uthmani the commentary on Sahih Muslim, Vol.2, p.179 in explanation of the Hadith: 374 – (…) ‘‘Abd ibn Ḥumayd told us: ‘Abd ar-Razzāq informed us: Ma‘mar informed us from Thābit from Anas; he said, “The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said, ‘The Hour will not rise over anyone who says: Allah, Allah.’”
This is with the name of Allah, exalted is He, in the nominative case [with ḍammah (u) on the final hā’]. Know that all of the narrations concur in the repetition of the name of Allah, exalted is He, in the two narrations, and thus it is in all the principle sources. Qāḍī ‘Iyāḍ said, “And in the narration of Ibn Abī Ja‘far, he says, ‘lā ilāha ill’Allāh.’”

“I say that in the repetition of the name there is an indication of the legislation of the dhikr of Allah, mighty and majestic is He, with His Singular Name, and there is refutation of those who claim to refute the fact that it is legislated and praiseworthy, such as Ḥāfiẓ Ibn Taymiyyah in his Fatwās, for he exerted himself to the utmost to refute the legislation of this dhikr. It was as if he, may Allah have mercy on him, forgot the hadith of this chapter. Glorious is the One Who does not sleep and does not forget.”
