Actually, the best answer on this question is number 2. There is no such thing as "Holy war" in Islam. There is nothing holy about a war. That term is only used by the Christians (i.e. Crusades).

Q11. What is NOT prohibited in Islam?
1. Eating pork
2. Drinking alcohol
3. Eating all meat
4. Premarital sex
All of them are prohibited. Muslims cannot eat Pork, cannot drink alcohol, cannot eat all meat and cannot engage in premaritial sex.

Yes. Some are known to Him only. Furthermore, there are more than 99 Names of Him mentioned in the Qur'an and Sunnah, howver, among these are 99 names which can bring you great reward if you learn them and act in accordance with them. These names are called Al Asma ul Husna (Most Beautiful Names).

Salam yeah i heard a talk with hamza Yusuf and he was saying if you in your dua call upon allah with his hidden names ie "O Allah I seek your help with my problems and I call upon your names which you have revelaed and the ones hidden" the Allah (SWT) does not refuse the dua.

Also has anyone heard the hadith in which the prophet is reported to have said "Allah has 99 names 100 less one and who ever learns these of by heart will enter jannah" what is the real meaning of it because we know Allah has more than 99 names in the quran and sunnah as kadafi said?

"According to a saheeh hadeeth, “Allaah has ninety-nine names. Whoever counts them will enter Paradise.” Counting them means memorizing them, understanding their meanings, acting in accordance with their implications and calling upon Allaah by them. Whoever does that and does not commit any major sin, and upholds regular prayer, will have the hope of entering Paradise. But the one who commits major sins has to repent, and he is still subject to the will of Allaah – if Allaah wills He will forgive him and if He wills He will punish him. But the person who dies by drowning or being crushed by a falling building is a shaheed (martyr) if he is Muslim, and there is the hope that all his evil deeds will be forgiven except for debt.
Shaykh ‘Abd al-Kareem al-Khudayr.
But according to the most correct scholarly view the person who deliberately neglects prayer altogether is a kaafir who has disbelieved in Allaah Almighty, and his abode will be the Fire even if he was drowned or a building collapsed on him.
The proof for this is that the ahaadeeth which promise a specific reward such as entering Paradise or being saved from Hell are subject to the conditions being fulfilled and the obstacles being removed. One of the obstacles to entering Paradise, for example, is neglecting prayer, and one of the conditions for the reward of the shaheed who is killed in battle is that his intention is to fight so that the word of Allaah may be supreme, and so on.
We also wish to point out to our brother that Muslim should not object to the rulings of Allaah once they have been proven and their meanings have been understood. If he finds something hard to understand, he should question his own reasoning and understanding, not the texts of sharee’ah.
And Allaah is the source of help."
