Does the dhikr of Allahu Zulcelal have a number?

We all know from our daily lives that some expressions of gratitude cannot be satisfied with just one, three, or even thirty repetitions. It is in the hands of our Lord to eliminate our needs and relieve our difficulties related to what we throw upon Him and everything He has created. Expressing our requests to our Lord by stating His names and repeating them in a certain number can be considered as the password of our request. These passwords are in the Qur'an! While the commentators of the Qur'an were interpreting the verses that included the Asmaul Husna, various methods were used and passed down through generations in the understanding of Ahl as-Sunnah. These methods have been accepted by all the great scholars, and there is no problem in repeating each name in different numbers. The numbers were determined by the statements of the scholars according to the needs of each period, by bringing together examples from the Prophet Muhammad's life, the lives of the companions, and the studies conducted on all the verses and hadiths that followed. May Allah grant us the opportunity to mention Him more and better than these numbers.
