Who Is Allah?

Go down

Who Is Allah?

Post by Imran on Tue 23 Feb 2016, 5:49 am

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy on him)
described the greatness of Allah in the most
beautiful way:
"He is controlling the affairs of all the
kingdoms. He commands and prohibits, creates
and gives provision, and gives death and gives
life. He raises and lowers people’s status,
alternates night and day, gives days (good and
not so good) to men by turns, and causes
nations to rise and fall, so that one nation
vanishes and another emerges. His command
and decree are carried out throughout the
heavens and on earth, above it and below it, in
the oceans and in the air. He has knowledge of
all things and knows the number of all things.
He hears all voices, and does not mistake one
for another; He hears them all, in all the
different languages and with all their varied
requests and pleas. No voice distracts Him
from hearing another, He does not confuse
their requests, and He never tires of hearing
the pleas of those in need. He sees all that is
visible, even the walk of a black ant across a
solid rock in the darkest night.
The unseen is visible to Him, and secrets are
known to Him Whosoever is in the heavens and
on earth begs of Him (its needs from Him).
Every day He has a matter to bring forth (such
as giving honour to some, disgrace to some,
life to some, death to some, etc.)!

[The Quran
55:29 interpretation of the meaning]. He
forgives sins, eases worries, relieves distress,
helps the defeated person back on his feet,
makes the poor rich, guides the one who is
astray and confused, fulfils the needs of the
desperate, feeds the hungry, clothes the naked,
conceals faults, and calms fears. He raises the
status of some and lowers the status of others.

Even if all the inhabitants of heaven and earth,
the first and the last of them, mankind and
jinn alike, were to be as pious as the most
pious among them, this would not increase His
sovereignty in the slightest; if they all, the first
and the last of them, mankind and jinn alike,
were to be as rebellious as the most rebellious
among them, this would not decrease His
sovereignty in the slightest. If everything in
heaven and on earth, the first and the last of
them, mankind and jinn, living and dead,
animate and inanimate, were to stand in one
place and ask of Him, and He were to give
them everything that they asked for, this would
not decrease what He has by even an atom’s

He is the First, before Whom there is nothing,
and the Last, after Whom there is nothing. He
is the Most deserving of being remembered,
the Most deserving of being worshipped, the
Most deserving of being thanked. He is the
Most Compassionate of kings, the Most
Generous of those who are asked. He is the
King Who has no partner or associate, the One
who has no rival, the Self-Sufficient Master,
Who has no son, the Most High, and there is
none like unto Him. Everything will perish save
His face [Quran 28:88 interpretation of the
meaning], and everything will vanish except His
sovereignty. He will not be obeyed except by
His permission, and He will not be disobeyed
except with His knowledge. He is obeyed, so
He shows His appreciation, and He is
disobeyed, so he forgives. Every punishment
on His part is justice, and every blessing from
Him is a favour. He is the closest of witnesses
and the nearest of protectors. He seizes people
by their forelocks, records their deeds and
decrees the appointed time for all things.
Hearts conceal nothing from Him, for secrets
are known to Him. His gift is a word and His
punishment is a word: Verily, His Command,
when He intends a thing, is only that He says
to it, Be! and it is. [Quran, 36:82
interpretation of the meaning].
(Adapted from al-Waabil al-Sayib, p. 125)
This is Allah, who revealed the Glorious Quran
for the guidance of mankind.
