بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ



For the tongue does not keep quiet at all...


It is the (nature of the) soul; if you do not preoccupy it with truth, it will occupy you with falsehood.

It is the (nature of the) heart; if you do not accommodate it with love of Allah, it will dwell with love of creation and this is a certain reality.

It is the (nature of the) tongue, if you do not preoccupy it with remembrance, it will most definitely occupy you with frivolity.



Thus, choose for your own self one of the two courses and confer upon it one of the two standings.”






[From: Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah's; Al-Wabil al-Sayyib min al-Kalim al-Tayyib]

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ


It was narrated from Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him)
that the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said:

“Whoever says سبحان الله العظيم وبحمده

(Glory and praise be to Allah, the Almighty),

a palm tree will be planted for him in Paradise.”


Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (3464) It was classed as saheeh (authentic) by al-Albani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah (hadeeth no. 64).


...

Size of tree

The Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم) conveyed an impression of its size when he said that "In Paradise there is a tree which the rider of a swift horse would need one hundred years to pass beneath"


[Bukhaari, Kitaab ar-Riqaaq]


And in the narration of Muslim from Abu Hurayrah and Sahl ibn Sa'd it is said that "In Paradise there is a tree under whose shade a traveller could travel for one hundred years and not reach the edge of it"

[Muslim, Kitaab al-Jannah]



....

Trunk of tree


One of the wondrous things that the Messenger of Allah (saw) told us is that the trunks of the trees are gold:

"There is no tree in Paradise that does not have a trunk made of gold"


[Ibn Hibbaan, at-Tirmidhi, al-Bayhaqee, from Abu Hurayrah, Saheeh al-Jaami' as-Sagheer 5/150 saheeh]


.

وعن ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏ "‏لقيت إبراهيم صلى الله عليه وسلم ليلة أسري بي، فقال‏:‏ يا محمد أقرئ أمتك مني السلام، وأخبرهم أن الجنة طيبة التربة، عذبة الماء، وأنها قيعان، وأن غراسها‏:‏ سبحان الله، والحمد لله، ولا إله إلا الله، والله أكبر‏"‏‏.‏ رواه الترمذي وقال حديث حسن‏.‏



 Messenger of Allah(صلى الله عليه وسلم‏)said

"I met Ibrahim(ﷺ)
  on the Night of Ascension (Al-Asra),
and he said to me: 'O Muhammad, صلى الله عليه وسلم convey my greetings to your Ummah,
and tell them that Jannah has a vast plain of pure soil and sweet water.
It is a plain levelled land.
The plants grow there by uttering: سبحان الله، والحمد لله، ولا إله إلا الله، والله أكبر

[At- Tirmidhi].

The Messenger of Allāh صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said:
“The best supplication is the one made on the Day of Arafah. The best thing ever said by me and the previous prophets is:
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ ، وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ ، وهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
"There is no deity worthy of worship in truth other than Allāh, who is alone, having no partner or associate. His is the dominion, and to Him belongs all praise. He has power over all everything, All-Capable.”

Thirty and ten:

"And We made an appointment with Moses for thirty nights and perfected them by [the addition of] ten; so the term of his Lord was completed as forty nights." [7:142]

Most of the scholars are of the opinion that "thirty" refers to Thul-Qi'dah and that 'ten" refers to the first ten days of Thul-Hijjah.

Thus, the appointment would be on the day of Nahr (sacrifice), and it is on this day that Moosa, may Allaah exalt his mention, spoke to Allaah,

and it is on this day that Allaah completed and perfected the religion of Muhammad ﷺ. (Ibn Katheer)


الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ

وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِى

وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الأِسْلاَمَ دِيناً

This day, I have perfected your religion for you,

completed My favor upon you,
and have chosen for you Islam as your religion

(surah Maidah)

Takbeer of Dhu'l-Hijjah


'Abd Allah ibn 'Umar رضي الله عنه narrated that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

ما من أيام أعظم عند الله ولا أحب إليه العمل فيهن من هذه الأيام العشر ، فأكثروا فيهن من التهليل والتكبير والتحميد

"There are no days greater with Allah and more beloved to perform (good) deeds therein, than on these ten days, so recite much Tahleel (saying Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah), and Takbeer (saying Allaahu akbar) and Tahmeed (saying al-hamdu Lillaah)."
[Musnad Ahmad, 7/224]

It is from the recommended Sunnah to become habitual in reciting the takbeer at any time during the first ten days of Dhu'l-Hijjah (and all the days of Tashreeq),

beginning from the onset of the month of Dhu'l-Hijjah, until the end of the days of al-Tashreeq, when the sun has set on the thirteenth day of Dhul-Hijjah.

Revive this Sunnah by making your takbeer audible during all of the first ten days of Dhu'l-Hijjah.

To show magnificence towards it, in your masajid, homes, roads, markets etc. and not to limit any good deeds on these days, but rather work towards increased wholesome goodness. Ibn 'Umar and Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with them both) used to go out to the market-place on first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah, reciting Takbeer, and the people used to recite Takbeer because of their Takbeer. 'Umar ibn al-Khattaab and his son (may Allah be pleased with them both) used to recite Takbeer during the days of Mina in the mosque and in the camps, and they would raise their voices until Mina echoed with their Takbeer. It was narrated that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and a group of the Sahabah used to recite Takbeer following each of the five prayers from Fajr on the day of 'Arafah until 'Asr on the thirteenth day of Dhu’l-Hijjah. For those who were not on Hajj...

The Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) said,


There is no other day where righteous actions are more beloved to Allaah than these days (meaning the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah).

They said,“O Messenger of Allaah, better than even struggling in the way of Allaah?”
He replied,

Yes, even better than struggling in the way of Allaah, except a man who left  with himself and all his wealth, and then he did not return back with anything

This hadeeth shows the superiority of these first ten days, and that any worship that is performed in these first ten days is better and more beloved to Allaah than all the other days of the world without exception.
Allaah (the Most High) also made an oath by these days, He said:
{By the dawn, and by the ten nights…} [Fajr;2]

The beginning of this blessed month also contains the days of Hajj, particularly the day of ‘Arafah.
Some from amongst the scholars mention that a lesser form of worship in this month is more beloved to Allaah than that which would otherwise be a better action in any other month.

It is also said that an obligatory form of worship in this month is better than the same worship in any other month, and similarly an optional form of worship is better in this month than the same worship in any other month.

Thereafter there are certain good deeds that have been specified above others:

1. Fasting the first 10 days – Hafsa, the wife of the Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) mentioned that, ‘the Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) would never leave the fasting of Ashoora (the 10th of Muharram), Al-Ashr (the first 10 days of this month, excluding Eid) and three days of every month.’

2. The praying of the night prayer – Many of the Salaf, including Imaam Ash-Shaafi’ee, would emphasise the night prayer during these days. Sa’eed bin Jubayr would strive much in praying the night prayer in the ten days, to an extent that he would almost go beyond that which he was physically able to do.

3. Dhikr: the remembrance of Allaah –This is in accordance with the following verse:
{…and make mention of the name of Allaah throughout the appointed days…}
‘The appointed days’ refer to the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah.
The Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) also said,
there are no other days more greater with Allaah and no other days wherein worship is more beloved to Allaah than these ten days, so increase in your remembrance of Allaah by making Tahleel (saying Laa ilaaha illa Allaah), Takbeer (saying Allaah Akbar) and Tahmeed (saying Alhamdulillaah)

4. In general all other good deeds –

Al-Hadi

The All-Guiding

He is The One Who guides and directs His servants towards all that will be of benefit to them and away from all that will bring them harm. He is The One Who teaches them what they did not previously know and guides them with a guidance that keeps them firm upon the Straight Path. He is The One Who inspires their hearts with piety (being conscious of Allah) and makes them penitent and compliant to His commands. (1)

قال الله تعالى: {وَلِيَعْلَمَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْعِلْمَ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ مِنْ رَبِّكَ فَيُؤْمِنُوا بِهِ فَتُخْبِتَ لَهُ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَإِنَّ اللهَ لَهَادِ الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُسْتَقِيمٍ} الحج 54

And that those who have been given knowledge may know that it (this Quran) is the truth from your Lord, and that they may believe therein, and their hearts may submit to it with humility. And verily, Allah is the Guide of those who believe, to a Straight Path.

Surah Al-Hajj [22: 54]

Allah is The All-Guiding, and His guiding of us is related to His mercy, knowledge and wisdom. First Allah guides us to Him; to know Him, to believe and affirm that He is our Lord, our Creator. He guides our hearts to believe in Him and in His Oneness, and because He is our Lord He shows us the way to attain His pleasure and His love, how to earn His reward and enter His Paradise. He guides us in a very detailed manner.

Allah’s perfect wisdom and mercy makes it impossible that He would leave us without guidance and knowledge. Truly Allah does not leave us like this; not knowing our goal or our path. No! Rather, He sent us Messengers with detailed guidance. So we say “alhamdulillah”  [all praise belongs to Allah] that Allah is The All-Guiding. Allah, The Most High, says,

قال الله تعالى: {وَقَالَ الرَّسُولُ يَا رَبِّ إِنَّ قَوْمِي اتَّخَذُوا هَٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ مَهْجُورًا ، وَكَذَٰلِكَ جَعَلْنَا لِكُلِّ نَبِيٍّ عَدُوًّا مِّنَ الْمُجْرِمِينَ ۗ وَكَفَىٰ بِرَبِّكَ هَادِيًا وَنَصِيرًا} الفرقان 30-31

And the Messenger (Muhammad ) will say: “O my Lord! Verily, my people deserted this Quran (neither listened to it, nor acted on its laws and orders). Thus have We made for every Prophet an enemy among the Mujrimun (disbelievers, polytheists, criminals, etc.) But Sufficient is your Lord as a Guide and Helper.

Surah Al-Furqan [25: 30-31]

There are two types of Guidance:

First is the general type of guidance:

This guidance is for the entire creation. Allah created all creation and He guides every single creature to its welfare and provision. He has created every creature in a manner which enables each one of them to manage in its surrounding environment. Allah guides us to that which is beneficial to us in regards to food, health, social relationships, rulings prohibiting the harmful acts and every single thing other than these.

This guidance includes all types of creatures, and it is not limited to humans. For example, Allah guides the animals to be able to differentiate between harmful (grass) and good grass in the wild. Allah guides the birds to know their way while flying thousands of kilometers when they migrate. Allah guides the ants to store their food for winter time. Moreover, ponder on how the tribes of animals appoint a leader and follow that leader, knowing the importance of being united in one group in order to avoid being attacked, glorified is Allah.

Allah guides each and every creature to what will benefit it, as well as guiding it away from what which will harm it. The amazing thing is that the lives of the animals, birds, fish and insects has been studied by the disbelievers. They have written books, made videos, and more; yet they fail to acknowledge and accept the existence of The Creator!

Allah is The All-Guiding, He did not create His creatures to leave them, without guidance. Allah, The Most High, says concerning this,

قال الله تعالى:{ الَّذِي خَلَقَ فَسَوَّى وَالَّذِي قَدَّرَ فَهَدَى } الأعلى 2-3

Who has created (everything), and then proportioned it; And Who has measured (pre ordainments for each and everything even to be blessed or wretched); then guided (i.e. showed mankind the right as well as wrong paths, and guided the animals to pasture).

Surah Al-Aʻla [87: 2-3]

So our ability to contemplate and reflect upon Allah’s guidance of His creation with His perfection and wisdom, is a clear sign of Allah’s divinity. Allah gave human beings a brain with which to think, comprehend and to draw conclusions. Even though we do not see Allah, we can surely see the acts of Allah in His creation. This entire universe with its many and varied creatures is a sign of the existence of a Creator; Allah, The Creator, The All-Guiding. This is one of the things that distinguishes us from the animals; the ability to comprehend something from its apparent and clear signs.

The second type of guidance is the guidance of knowledge and revelation  (“Hidayah Al-Irshad”):

There is a general guidance which Allah has given to everyone, meaning that Allah has established and clarified the truth upon everyone. (2)

Allah says concerning this,

قال الله تعالى: {وَأَمَّا ثَمُودُ فَهَدَيْنَاهُمْ فَاسْتَحَبُّوا الْعَمَىٰ عَلَى الْهُدَىٰ فَأَخَذَتْهُمْ صَاعِقَةُ الْعَذَابِ الْهُونِ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ } فصلت 17

And as for Thamud, We showed and made clear to them the Path of Truth (Islamic Monotheism) through Our Messenger, (i.e. showed them the way of success), but they preferred blindness to guidance, so the Sa’iqah (a destructive awful cry, torment, hit, a thunderbolt) of disgracing torment seized them, because of what they used to earn. Surah Fussilat [41: 17]

Allah will not punish anyone unless He has first sent to them a Messenger conveying the truth and guiding them to that which is correct.  He will not punish them until He has sent to them someone who conveys the truth to them in a very clear, vivid, and comprehensive manner that they can understand.

قال الله تعالى: { أَنْ تَقُولَ نَفْسٌ يَا حَسْرَتَا عَلَى مَا فَرَّطْتُ فِي جَنْبِ اللَّهِ وَإِنْ كُنْتُ لَمِنَ السَّاخِرِينَ أَوْ تَقُولَ لَوْ أَنَّ اللهَ هَدَانِى لَكُنتُ مِنَ الْـمُتَّقِينَ، أَوْ تَقُولَ حِينَ تَرَى الْعَذَابَ لَوْ أَنَّ لِى كَرَّةً فَأَكُونَ مِنَ الُْمحْسِنِين،  بَلَى قَدْ جَآءَتْكَ ءَايَـتِى فَكَذَّبْتَ بِهَا وَاسْتَكْبَرْتَ وَ كُنْتَ مِنَ الْكَـفِرِين} الزمر -59-56

Lest a person should say: “Lest a person should say: “Alas, my grief that I was undutiful to Allah (i.e. I have not done what Allah has ordered me to do), and I was indeed among those who mocked [at the truth! i.e. La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), the Quran, and Muhammad and at the faithful believers, etc.] Or (lest) he should say: “If only Allah had guided me, I should indeed have been among the Muttaqun (pious and righteous persons). Or (lest) he should say when he sees the torment: “If only I had another chance (to return to the world) then I should indeed be among the muhsinun (good-doers).”Yes! Verily, there came to you My Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and you denied them, and were proud and were among the disbelievers.

Surah Az-Zumar [39: 56-59]

Allah has revealed the Books and sent us Messengers, providing us with proofs of His existence and His deserving to be worshipped alone. Allah has set rulings for us by which we must abide; rulings which clearly show us what is allowed and what is forbidden. Allah’s rulings and legislation are another vivid proof and sign of Allah’s divinity. Reflect on the fact that Allah prohibited alcohol over a thousand years ago, and yet now you see that governments are beginning to strictly regulate alcohol after “discovering” its dangerous harm for society! Furthermore, Allah also forbade gambling, which is an obvious cause of the destruction of many homes, even driving some people to suicide! Allah has guided us through His complete, perfect and just legislation, in order to protect our minds, health, religion, money and our souls, in every single aspect of our life.

The third type of guidance is the guidance to success (Hidayah at-Tawfiq):

This is a special kind of guidance wherein Allah guides His slaves to act upon the righteous path. He guides their hearts to accept the truth revealed by Him; He guides their hearts to believe in Him, understand about Him and to surrender to Him with love, glorifying and hoping in Him. This guidance is not for just anyone, it is solely for those who deserve it. Allah is The Wise, and His wisdom denies that He guides an arrogant, cruel heart. Allah will guide only those who are willing to acknowledge and truly know the truth and allow their hearts to submit to the truth by choosing to be a sincere slave of Allah. Any heart in which Allah sees a sincere search for the truth and readiness to accept, then this heart is deserving of His guidance.

قال الله تعالى: {  وَمَا كَانَ اللهُ لِيُضِلَّ قَوْمًا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَاهُمْ حَتَّى يُبَيِّنَ لَهُمْ مَا يَتَّقُونَ إِنَّ اللهَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ } التوبة 115

And Allah will never lead a people astray after He has guided them until He makes clear to them as to what they should avoid. Verily, Allah is The All-Knower of everything.

Surah At-Tawbah [9: 115]

Allah’s justice denies that He would let anyone go astray unless this person came to know the truth and then deliberately refused it and turned away from it. Accordingly, it is not likely that one who deviates from the straight path has not been shown the truth. No! Rather, it is he who deserves to be astray due to his rejection of this truth. Once you understand this, then you must be certain that you never refuse the truth concerning any issue when it has been made apparent to you, and you should not feel pity for those people who refuses to follow the truth, as indeed they have refused to follow the correct path and have chosen to follow the wrong one.

We have an excellent example in one of the Companions of the Prophet (peace be upon him), Salman al-Farisi, may Allah be pleased with him. He was born in Persia. His father was the chief of his town and they worshipped fire, and yet Salman, in this far land and in this pagan environment passed by a church and saw the praying of the Christians. When he saw this, he felt that their religion was better than his and he asked to learn more about it. He kept moving from one country to another, searching for the truth, and eventually was told that a prophet would soon be sent. Allah arranged that he travel to Madinah where he met the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and he became an honorable Companion. Now, Who guided Salman Al-Farisi to Islam and brought him from this distant land where they worshipped fire? Allah did. And this is an example of special guidance; a guidance to success.

Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim said,

This special guidance has certain steps that must be followed, and one must constantly and consistently ask Allah’s aid to guide one through each step:

1- Guidance of true knowledge about Him and about His legislation

2- Guidance to accept this knowledge.

3-  Determination to act upon this knowledge

4- The ability and power to act upon this knowledge

5- Remaining steadfast upon it till one dies. (3)
This is what we need to realize and to ask Allah when we say in our prayers:

إهدنا الصراط المستقيم } الفاتحة 6}

Guide us to the Straight Way. Surah Al-Fatihah [1: 6]

Finally, from the very special guidance of Allah is His guidance of you through your own heart. Your heart will be an indication or sign of whether or not you are on the right path. How? An example would be performing a certain act thinking that this act pleases Allah; for instance, deserting your mother because she is sinful. In your mind, you believe this is for Allah’s sake, yet you feel a tightness in your heart that tells you otherwise. This tightness is special guidance from Allah which tells you that something is wrong with this act you are engaging in. At this point you need to stop and ask Allah to guide you to do the correct thing. Never ignore this feeling in your heart. Look more deeply into the situation and hasten to correct yourself.

Whomever Allah guides to the truth in this life, He will then guide him to answer the questions in the grave correctly. The more one adheres to and is firm upon the righteous path in this world, the quicker he will be able to pass the bridge (the bridge, fine as a razor’s edge, over which all who enter paradise must pass). The more one searches for the truth, the more light he will be give on the day of reckoning to be able to find his way in the darkness of the bridge.

There is no way to keep on the right path except by adhering firmly to the way of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. There is no way to reach Allah and the Paradise except through his way. Allah did not send him only to the Arabs; rather, He sent him for all of mankind, for the entire creation.You will never be guided without understanding the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad, upon the understanding of the Salaf, who are the righteous people of the Prophet’s generation and their offspring up to and including the third generation. Indeed, these generations preserved the Sunnah (the way of the prophet peace be upon him) and conveyed it to us.

Prophet Muhammad was a human Messenger, and it is from Allah’s mercy that we are commanded to follow a Messenger who shares with us the same human attributes and feelings that we ourselves have. The Prophet, peace be upon him, put the verses of Quran into practice in every way. He showed us how Islam is to be practiced practically, in our everyday lives. He acted according to what pleased Allah in every way. He clarified all matters by which, if we truly follow his guidance concerning them, we will certainly win in both lives: this life and the hereafter.

The more you understand, comprehend, and acknowledge those things in which you truly need Allah’s guidance, the more sincerely you will then be able to supplicate to Him. The truth is, we need Allah’s special guidance in every aspect of our lives, including  decision making, using wisdom in all that we do and say, standing firm when faced with tests and trials and other than these.  And if Allah does not guide you, you will most definitely go astray.

العزيز الجبار

Al-‘Aziz Al-Jabbar  


 The Mighty, The Compeller





The name of Allah Al-‘Azeez :

The One to Whom belongs might/honor in its entirely, the might/honor of strength, of conquest and of preventing. So He has prevented any of His creation from encompassing and grasping Him, He is Omnipotent over everything that is in existence, the whole of creation is subject and indebted to Him and yielding before His greatness. (1)

إِنَّ الْعِزَّةَ لِلَّهِ جَمِيعًا} يونس 65}

All Al-‘izzah (power and all the mightiness and all the strength) belong to Allah. Surah Yunus [10: 65]

 

The name of Al-‘Azeez comprises three meanings:

Firstly: It denotes the meaning of Power, Mightiness and Strength, as Allah says:

إِنَّ الله هُوَ الرَّزَّاقُ ذُو الْقُوَّةِ الْمَتِينُ} الذاريات 58}

Verily, Allah is The All Provider, Owner of Power, The Most Strong. Surah Adh-Dhaariyaat [51:58]

 

When the people of ʿAd, asked their Prophet Hud: “Who is mightier than us in strength?”

{فَأَمَّا عَادٌ فَاسْتَكْبَرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ بِغَيْرِ الْحَقِّ وَقَالُوا مَنْ أَشَدُّ مِنَّا قُوَّةً ۖ} فصلت 14

As for ‘Ad, they were arrogant in the land without right, and they said: “Who is mightier than us in strength?” Surah Fussilat [41:14]

 

What did Allah say? He responded with :

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا أَنَّ الله الَّذِي خَلَقَهُمْ هُوَ أَشَدُّ مِنْهُمْ قُوَّةً ۖ} فصلت 15}

Did they not see that Allah Who created them, Is mightier in strength than them? Surah Fussilat [41:15]

 

The answer is: Your Creator is definitely more powerful, so this is the power and strength that is intended.

Secondly: the meaning of Al ‘Azeez also includes His being free of needing the creation. This is ‘izzah of abstention which means the impossibility of any shortcomings, the impossibility of anyone being equal to Him and the impossibility that anyone can ever harm Him, glorified and exalted is He; He is too high and mighty to be in need of anyone. He is The All Rich and all the creation are in need to Him.

He is free of any shortcomings whatsoever. He, glorified and exalted is He, has the most perfect and complete names, attributes and actions.

وَلَهُ الْمَثَلُ الْأَعْلَىٰ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ} الروم 27}

He has the highest description, i.e. none has the right to be worshipped but He, and there is nothing comparable to Him in the heavens and in the earth, and He is The All Mighty, The All Wise. Surah ar-Rum [30: 27]

Thirdly: The meaning of conquering, overpowering. Allah conquers and overpowers the whole of creation. The entire creation is submissive to His power and submissive to His will. All forelocks are under His control, no one in this creation can make anything in any way except with His permission and only if He wills.(2)

قُلِ اللَّهُمَّ مَالِكَ الْمُلْكِ تُؤْتِي الْمُلْكَ مَنْ تَشَاءُ وَتَنْزِعُ الْمُلْكَ مِمَّنْ تَشَاءُ وَتُعِزُّ مَنْ تَشَاءُ وَتُذِلُّ مَنْ تَشَاءُ ۖ بِيَدِكَ الْخَيْرُ ۖ إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ} ال عمران 26}

Say O Muhammad (peace be upon him): O Allah, Possessor of the Kingdom, You give the kingdom to whom You will, and You take the kingdom from whom You will, and You endue with honor whom You will, and You humiliate whom You will. In Your Hand is the good, verily, You are able to do all things.  Surah Al-Imraan [3: 26]

 

Look at your own creation—do you have any choice in your height, the way you look, in your intelligence, in your gender, how long you will live, your sickness or health? Do you have any choice? No, no choice. We all submit to His power and to His will regarding all these matters.

وَهُوَ الْقَاهِرُ فَوْقَ عِبَادِهِ} الأنعام 18}

And He is the Irresistible (Supreme), above His slaves. Surah Al-An-‘am [6:18]

One should ponder that the amazing thing is we do not even have the choice over our own hearts. Can you make your heart feel happy when there is a pain in it? Can you make your heart to love a specific thing or person? No, it is only if Allah wills. Even for your heart to love Allah, we need Allah’s will first. This is an example of how Allah overpowers His creation.

Now, if we do understand this name of Allah, we need to react to this understanding and subsequently to worship Allah according to this understanding. If you know that Allah is the All Powerful, the All Mighty, The Honorable, then how are you going to receive His orders? How will you react to His commands?

We should submit to His orders and commands and humble ourselves to Him, because Allah, the All Mighty and the All Powerful, deserves this.

We need to know that each name necessitates a special act of worship. There are names which make you worship Allah lovingly, and other names which make you seek hope in Allah and put your reliance on Him. Yet another name will incline you to hope and seek His forgiveness and there are names like this name, Al-‘Azeez, which will incline you to submit and humble yourself to Him.

The question in front of us now is: Do you want to be honourable and mighty (having ‘izzah)? Do you want to feel this special type of honor (‘izzah)?

So what is meant by honor and glory with regards to ourselves? The Scholars say ‘izzah legislatively means: A state of feeling distant from being defeated and overcome.

This ‘izzah is a feeling which fills the heart and soul with transcendence, due to the strong attachment to Allah, where the soul is elevated from any humiliating position and frees itself from the slavery of its lusts and desires, and from the degradation of greed.

So, when you free your heart and soul from being attached to the people regarding your needs and hopes and fears (no attachments at all in anyway), it is only then, you will feel this honor. When you are attached only to Allah, asking only Him, and fearing only Him, you will be able to free yourself from the creation, you will be able to deal with people knowing that no one can bring benefit to you and no one can harm you, it is only Allah Who can do that.

وَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ وَلِرَسُولِهِ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ} المنافقون 8}

To Allah only belongs the Honor, Power and Glory and to His Messenger and to the believers. Surah Al-Munafiqun [63:8]

 

If you want this honor and glory then only Allah can grant you this.

The honor of being a slave only to Allah, our Creator, The King, The All Mighty and the All Powerful. This is the true freedom. To humble yourself only to Allah.

This freedom of creation has a very special joy. Only a free person can taste the true feelings of submission and lowering himself only to Allah. When he puts his face on the ground in his prostration, and says: “I submit only to You Allah and I lower myself only to You Allah,” then he can truly feel this great pleasure and the joy of these words. The honor to be a slave only to Allah and no one else, this is in reality tawheed and the honor that comes with tawheed.

The only way to achieve this honor and this freedom from the creation, is by honoring Allah’s religion and to honor His commands. So the more you humble yourself to Allah, the more you will be honorable.

 

مَن كَانَ يُرِيدُ الْعِزَّةَ فَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ جَمِيعًا} فاطر 26}

Whoever desires Al-‘izzah (honor, power and glory), then to Allah belong all ‘izzah (power and glory). Surah Faṭir [35:26]

Imagine living a life free from any fears, from any worries, free from needing the people. You will only fear Allah and will hope in Allah, and surely He will suffice you and protect you and provide for you, He the All Mighty, the All Powerful.

‘Umar ibn Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, said:

” نحن قوم أعزنا الله بالاسلام فمهما ابتغينا العزة بغيره أذلنا الله “

We are people Allah made us honourable with Islam, and if we seek honor from other than Islam Allah will humiliate and lower us (3)

This honor, ʿUmar ibn Al-Khattaab mentioned, deserves to be pondered at. How the arabs before Islam were just scattered tribes, they looked at the Roman and Persian Kingdom as the major powers which they can never dream of opposing, nevermind defeating. Then after Islam was established in their lands and after they abided to the rules of Islam and submitted to Allah, He enabled them to conquer these two major powers, and lead them to conquering the world from east to west.
A man asked Al-Imam Al-Hasan Al-Basri for an advice, so he told him:

 ” أعز أمر الله حيثما كنت، يعزك الله حيثما كنت ”

Honor Allah commands wherever you are and in every situation, and Allah will honor you wherever you are and in every situation. (4)
This meaning was demonstrated by Sheikh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah when he said (referring to his stay in prison):

What can my enemies do to me? They have no authority on me, my paradise is in my heart. My imprisoning is an opportunity for privacy with Allah, deporting me is a vacation, killing me is martyrdom (Shahaadah). (5)
So this is how one feels the honor and pride and dignity of not fearing anyone except Allah. This is the outcome of a true understanding of Allah’s name Al-‘Azeez.

We need to understand, that this honor and pride and glory we are talking about, is an inner feeling which fills our soul.

Yet, when we deal with people in general and especially other Muslims, we have to be humble ourselves amongst them. We must never mistreat them out of pride or arrogance. We should lower ourselves to the good believers out of mercy for them.

Allah hates those who are arrogant and proud with others. Why? Because we are slaves ourselves and we are weak helpless creatures, so why the arrogance? Only Allah deserves to be proud, because He is The Creator, The King and we are His slaves.

 

الجبار
Al-Jabbar (الجبار)


The name of Allah Al-Jabbar has three meanings:

The first is the attribute of conquering and overpowering as mentioned in the name al-‘Azeez previously.

The second beautiful meaning of His name Al-Jabbar (The Compeller) is that Allah restores the weak with His mercy. He restores the broken hearts and restores the sick person by guiding him to be patient, by facilitating his cure and by rewarding him for his pain with the greatest rewards.

Restore (يجبر): it comes with the meaning of restoring your defects to a good condition, to compensate for any hardship, to remedy your broken heart, to mend our defects in worship and to mend our injured dignity.

Allah restores the hearts of the believers, who have submitted to Him, and who are attached with their hopes only in Him. Those who feel they need His guidance and His aid. Allah will restore these believers by enlightening their hearts with knowledge about Him and by guiding them. He will restore them from their defects and whenever they do an act of disobedience, He will guide them to repent and will accept their repentance so they can complete their faith again. (6)

To understand the meaning of restoring, it has a root word in arabic which means ‘cast’ (as in a cast put on a broken bone). This cast fixes the broken bone and restores it back to its complete state and as such, the weakness disappears and strength is restored.

This meaning of restoring, you will find in the supplication of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, between the two prostrations in his prayers:

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي وَارْحَمْنِي وَاجْبُرْنِي وَاهْدِنِي وَارْزُقْنِي

I ask you Allah to forgive me and to have mercy upon me and to restore my weakness and my defects (i.e restore them to strength) and to guide me and to provide for me. (7)

Now reflect, O reader! When you say this supplication in your prayers, do you really ponder on the meaning of each word? Do you know what are you asking Allah with inside your heart? Do you feel a great need for Allah to respond to what you have asked? Do you realize your need for the forgiveness of Allah, His guidance and provision? Do you realize how your heart needs Al-Jabbar to restore any defects in it or ease any pain it feels? If we do not feel this then this supplication will not have its desired effect.
You will find this second meaning of the name of Allah, Al-Jabbar in the Quran in many places. Allah glorified and exalted is He, commands us to take care of the orphan because he is weak. Allah commands us to have special care with our parents when they are old because now they are weak. Allah prohibits us from hurting the feelings of the poor when we help them with money. Allah restores our good state after any hardship we face due to practicing our religion by telling us that He will compensate us with the Paradise and we will be the only winners in the Hereafter. Through this He puts calmness and tranquility in our hearts which will give us the strength to continue and endure.

A third meaning of the name of Allah, Al-Jabbar is related to His highness and His elevation over His creation.

Allah is the only Compeller, Who overpowers and conquers the whole of creation and these attributes are deserved only to Allah. Anyone who tries to act with arrogance or tries to overpower people Allah, glorified and exalted is He, will strongly avenge him. (Cool

 

كَذَٰلِكَ يَطْبَعُ الله عَلَىٰ كُلِّ قَلْبِ مُتَكَبِّرٍ جَبَّارٍ} غافر35}

Thus does Allah seals up the heart of every arrogant, tyrant, so they will not be able to guide themselves to the right path. Surah Al-Ghafir [40:35]

 

وَاسْتَفْتَحُوا وَخَابَ كُلُّ جَبَّارٍ عَنِيدٍ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ جَهَنَّمُ وَيُسْقَىٰ مِنْ مَاءٍ صَدِيدٍ يَتَجَرَّعُهُ وَلَا يَكَادُ يُسِيغُهُ وَيَأْتِيهِ الْمَوْتُ مِنْ كُلِّ مَكَانٍ وَمَا هُوَ بِمَيِّتٍ ۖ وَمِنْ وَرَائِهِ عَذَابٌ غَلِيظٌ} إبراهيم 15-17}

And they (the Messengers) sought victory and help, from their Lord, and every obstinate arrogant dictator (who refuses to believe in the oneness of Allah) was brought to a complete loss and destruction, in front of Him is Hell, and he will be made to drink boiling festering water. He will sip it unwillingly, and he will find a great difficulty to swallow it down his throat, and death will come to him from every side, yet he will not die and in front of him, will be a great torment. Surah Ibrahim [14: 15-17]

 

Imam Ahmad mentions that Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, said that the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon Him, said:

“يخرج عنق من النار يوم القيامة له عينان يبصر بهما، و أذنان يسمع بهما، و لسان ينطق به، فيقول:  إني وكلت بثلاثة: بكل جبار عنيد و بكل من ادعى مع الله إلها آخر و المصورين.”

On the Resurrection Day, there will be a neck coming out of the Hellfire, it has two eyes it sees with, it has two ears it hears with and it has a tongue it will speak with. This neck will say: Allah commanded me to capture three types of people: every arrogant obstinate individual and everyone who associated a partner with Allah and the picture makers (the one who makes or copy images imitating Allah’s creation). (9)
These are the three types of people Allah hates most.

So here we need to think again, yes Allah is merciful, and Allah restores us and forgives us, but He is Al-‘Azeez, Al-Jabbar, don’t ever think to oppose Allah. Because we need to know our limits as slaves to Allah, Al-‘Azeez, Al-Jabbar.

The limit of a slave is that he reacts to the command of Allah by saying only one thing: “Yes Allah, we hear and we obey”.

 

We seek refuge in Allah from Hellfire, and we ask Him His pleasure and forgiveness and to guide us to the best manners and actions.

الله
God


The name Allah originates from the Arabic word “ilah” (Deity); ilah is combined with the word “Al” which is equivalent to “the” in English. So the meaning of Al-ilah or Allah is The Only One worthy of worship. Allah says:

قال الله تعالى: {وَمَا أُمِرُوا إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُوا إِلَٰهًا وَاحِدًا ۖ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۚ سُبْحَانَهُ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ} التوبة 31

While they (Jews and Christians) were commanded [in the Tawrat (Torah) and the Injil (Gospel)] to worship none but One ilah (God – Allah) La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). Praise and glory be to Him, (far above is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him).

Surah At-Tawbah [9: 31]

Allah created us for one noble purpose, to worship Him alone and to live according to His guidance and commandments. All the Prophets from Adam to Nuh (Noah) to Idris (Enoch), Ibrahim (Abraham), Yaʿqub (Jacob), Musa (Moses), Dawud (David), Sulayman (Solomon),  ‘Isa (Jesus) and Muhammad, peace be upon them all, were sent by Allah with the same Message, worship Allah and associate nothing with Him.
Each Prophet conveyed this consistent Divine Message of worshiping one God alone, Allah.

قال الله تعالى: {أم كنتم شهداء إذ حضر يعقوب الموت إذ قال لبنيه ما تعبدون من بعدي قالوا نعبد إلهك و إله أبائك إبراهيم و إسماعيل و إسحاق إلها واحدا و نحن له مسلمون} البقرة 133

Or were you witnesses when death approached Ya’qub (Jacob)? When he said unto his sons “Who will you worship after I die?” They said, “We shall worship your Ilah (God – Allah), the Ilah (God) of your fathers, Ibrahim (Abraham), Ismaʿil (Ishmael), Ishaq (Isaac), One Ilah (God), and to Him we submit (in Islam).  

Surah al-Baqarah [2:133]

The most comprehensive and best meaning of “Allah” is what has been attributed to Abdullah Ibn ‘Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, when he said:

Allah is the Possessor of Divinity and Worship over all creation.(1)
This explanation combines between two affairs:

Firstly: The description that is attached with this Noble Name. His Divinity is attached to the wording “Allah,” just as knowledge is attached to Al-’Aleem, might and power is attached to Al-’Azeez, wisdom is attached to Al-Hakeem, mercy is attached to Ar-Raheem, and other attributes which show and are attached to His Essence. Allah is The Possessor of Divinity, and this is a tremendous description which He is deserving of. Rather, none should have a share with this tremendous attribute.

Secondly: The description that is attached to servitude. The slaves worship and single Him out alone .

Allah the Most High said:

وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى فِى ٱلسَّمَآءِ إِلَـٰهٌ۬ وَفِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ إِلَـٰهٌ۬‌ۚ} الزخرف 84}

It is He Who is the only God (to be worshiped) in the heaven and the only God (to be worshiped) on the earth…

Surah Az-Zhukhruf [43: 84]

Meaning, the inhabitants of the heaven and earth are subjugated to Him. Everything is submissive to His Greatness, obedient to His Want, Will, and Mightiness. The slaves of Ar-Rahman single Him out in worship and exert themselves in worshipping Him through their hearts, spirits, statements, and actions.

Allah combined these two meanings (Divinity and servitude) in numerous places in the Quran like His statement,

إِنَّنِىٓ أَنَا ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّآ أَنَا۟ فَٱعۡبُدۡنِى وَأَقِمِ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ لِذِڪۡرِىٓ} سُوۡرَةُ طٰه, 14}

Verily! I am Allah! La ilaha illa Ana (none has the right to be worshipped but I), so worship Me, and perform As-Salat (the prayers) for My Remembrance.

[Surah Taha: 14]

This great attribute of Divinity, is due to His perfect and complete names and attributes and actions by which He deserves to be worshipped alone without associating any partners with Him. (2)

وَمَآ أَرۡسَلۡنَا مِن قَبۡلِكَ مِن رَّسُولٍ إِلَّا نُوحِىٓ إِلَيۡهِ أَنَّهُ ۥ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّآ أَنَا۟ فَٱعۡبُدُونِ} سورة الأنبياء , 25}

And We did not send any Messenger before you (O Muhammad) but We revealed to him (saying): ‘None has the right to be worshiped but I (Allah), so worship Me (Alone and none else).

Surah Al-Anbiya [21: 25]

 

The name Allah is the origin of all of the beautiful names of Allah and this name necessitates all the other perfect names and attributes, because to be “Allah” He has to be The Creator, The Sustainer, The Everliving, The All Knowing, The King, The All Powerful, The All Seeing, The All Hearing, The All Forgiving, The All Wise and so on. (3)

قال الله تعالى: {الله لا إله إلا هو له الأسماء الحسنى} طه 8

Allah! none has the right to be worshipped but Him, To Him belong the perfect names.  Surah Ta-ha [20: 8]

So, why is Allah The Only One Who deserves to be worshiped? Because Allah is The Only Creator and there is no Creator but Him. He is the All Strong and Almighty and no one is stronger than Him. He is The Conqueror and everyone submits to Him. He is The King and we are slaves to Him. He provides and sustains for the entire creation and we all are in need of Him. To be Allah, He has to be The Self Sufficient (Al-Ghani) as he does not need any of His creation.

قال الله تعالى: {رب السماوات و الأرض و ما بينهما فاعبده و اصطبر لعبادته، هل تعلم له سميا} مريم 65

Lord of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, so worship Him (Alone) and be constant and patient in His worship. Do you know of any who is similar to Him? (of course none is similar or co-equal or comparable to Him, and He has none as partner with Him.)  

Surah Maryam [19: 65]

The word “Al-Uluhiyyah” in Arabic has a beautiful meaning. It means to do acts of worship to Allah lovingly seeking His closeness and His pleasure. Worship is based on love, hope, fear, and our love to Allah should precede our hope and fear.

Allah deserves to be worshiped lovingly due to His beautiful and perfect attributes and acts. To understand this, try to ponder and think about the attributes you wish that “Allah” (The One Who controls all your affairs, The One Who will recompense you) will be described with.

Imagine you don’t yet know about Allah and you are told that you are created to worship Allah, what will you say you wish his attributes to be?

I would say I wish Allah is merciful and forgiving, otherwise I will be punished for every wrong deed I do (and who could tolerate this in reality?). I wish Allah to hear me and hear my needs and to be capable of providing for me. I wish Allah to be just and appreciative. I wish Allah to be strong and mighty in order to protect me from my enemies. I wish Allah to be of vast wisdom and knowledge.

Now all the beautiful and perfect attributes you can think of and wish to find in Allah, you will find it and much much more, even beyond what your mind can comprehend.

This is what you need to feel whenever you say alhamdulillah (all praise is to Allah). We praise Allah with love and gratitude for His names, attributes and actions. You need to feel this love and this happiness with Allah’s names and attributes.

Ibn Al-Qayyim, may Allah be pleased with him, said:

As for the particular virtues of the meaning of this name Allah, the most knowledgeable of the creation (Prophet Muhammad, peace upon him) himself said:

“I could not praise You enough as You deserve. You are as You have praised Yourself”. (4)
So how can we enumerate the special virtues of the name of the One Who comprises every perfection unrestricted, every praise and commendation, every adulation and exaltation, all splendor, all perfection and glory, all beauty, all good, eminence and all generosity? Excellence and goodness is for Him and is from Him.

This name Allah is not mentioned upon a small amount of something except that it causes it to increase. Nor is it mentioned in a state of fear except that it removes it. Nor is it mentioned on any misfortune except that it relieves it. Nor in any state of anxiety and distress except that it brings relief to it. Nor upon any state of difficulty except that it brings ease to it. None that is weak resorts to it, except that it brings strength to him. Nor anyone in a state of humiliation, except that it brings honor to him. Nor anyone in poverty, except that he is enriched. Nor anyone who feels estranged and uneasy, except that it causes him to feel at ease. Nor is it mentioned by one who is overcome, except that it brings aid and victory for him. Nor by one who is in straitened circumstances, except that his difficulty is removed. Nor is it mentioned by some one who seeks refuge, except that he finds his refuge.

It is the name ­”Allah”, through which distress is removed, through which the descent of blessings is sought, and through which supplications are answered. Through it slips are corrected, sins are warded away, and good deeds are brought closer.

It is the name with which the heavens and earth were established, with which the revealed Books were sent down, and with which the Messengers were sent. With it the legislated laws were prescribed. Through it the prescribed punishments were established, and with it striving against infidelity was prescribed. Through this name the creation will become divided into the fortunate and the wretched. With it the true and tremendous Day (the Day of Judgement) will be established. With it the Scales of Justice are set up, the bridge laid down and the Paradise and the Fire are established. With it The Lord of all creation is worshiped and praised. For its right the Messengers were sent. It will be asked about in the grave and for it there will be the Resurrection. Judgement is to it, and alliance and enmity are for it. Through it, those who know it and establish its rights will be the fortunate ones. Through it, those who are ignorant of it and leave its rights will be the wretched ones.

This name Allah, is the reason for creation and commands and through it they are established and confirmed, and to it they arrive at a conclusion. The creation comes about through it, returns to it, and exists because of it. (5)

قال الله تعالى {رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَٰذَا بَاطِلًا سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ } آل عمران 191

Our Lord, You have not created (all of) this without purpose, glory to You (exalted are You above all that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation  from the punishment of the Fire.

Surah Al-Imran [3: 191]

Allah, exalted is He, is “IIaah” in the heavens and in the earth. All the creation submits to His power and His will, either people are willingly or unwillingly each and everyone of us is under His power and His will. He can do with us whatever He wills, whenever He wishes. Both believers and nonbelievers are slaves to Allah, and both are under His will.

وَهُوَ الَّذِي فِي السَّمَاءِ إِلَٰهٌ وَفِي الْأَرْضِ إِلَٰهٌ ۚ وَهُوَ الْحَكِيمُ الْعَلِيمُ  } الزخرف 84}

It is He (Allah) Who is the only Ilaah (Deity to be worshiped) in the heaven and The Only Ilah (Deity to be worshiped) on the earth. And He is The All Wise, The All Knower.

Surah Az-Zhukhruf [43: 84]

The true believers, the true slaves of Ar-Rahman (The Possessor of Vast Mercy), are those who choose to be slaves to Allah willingly and submissively. They eagerly do their utmost to please Allah with their hearts, souls and actions according to their level of Iman (faith). They know why they were created and they are acting on fulfilling the purpose of their creation. (6)
