God's Most Beautiful Names

Allah is As-Samad 

Last Ramadan, Dr. Abou Taleb gave this interesting speech in Boston on the meanings of Allah's name As-Samad.

This name is mentioned only once in the Qur'an in Chapter 112. As-Samad is the One who needs nobody, and whom all of creation are in desperate need of Him:

God's Most Beautiful Names

Allah is The Watchful (Al-Raqeeb)

Another beautiful talk by Dr. Mohamed Abou Taleb in the US last Ramadan in the series (In Awe of Allah) on the meanings of Allah's Name Al-Raqeeb:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXaBBKcCe5I&feature=relmfu

Our journey continues with the Name of Allah "al-Raqeeb / ar-Raqib", signaling that He is ever watchful over us and even the secrets we hide within our chests. We discuss how knowing ar-Raqeeb lead one to a higher standard of conduct and character.

God's Most Beautiful Names

Allah is The Forgiver (Al-Ghafoor)

Another beautiful talk by Dr. Mohamed Abou Taleb in the US last Ramadan in the series (In Awe of Allah) on the meanings of Allah's Name Al-Ghafoor:

The Name "Al-Ghafoor / Al-Ghafur" is known to all of God's servants, for we all sin and have no one to turn to for forgiveness but He.

But has forgiveness become so routine that we take it for granted?

We discuss how seeking forgiveness is not merely a word, but a process that strengthens our relationship with the Divine.

God's Most Beautiful Names

Allah is Al-Tawwab (The Grantor and Acceptor of Repentance)

The Name "at-Tawwab" signals a divine invitation from God, for it charts a return for those who have lost their way and those too shamed to seek God carrying the burden of sin.

Together, we learn that repentance is both granted by God and He is the One who accepts it, yet another manifestation of His endless grace, bounty, and mercy.

Allah is Al-Adl "The Utterly Just"

Through the Name "al-Adl" we learn that Go is utterly, absolutely just, and from this Name comes the justice that we seek to establish on earth.

This Name is a hope for everyone who has ever tasted the bitterness of oppression, small or large.

God's Most Beautiful Names

Allah is Al-Shakour (The Appreciative)

The fastest call to action and the best remedy for apathy, hopelessness, and despair is to know God "as-Shakoor/as-Shakur", the One who grants rewards you many times over for even the smallest and simplest of deeds.

God's Most Beautiful Names

Allah is Al-Wakeel (The Trustee)

Do you trust God?

Before you say yes out of impulse, be careful because the answer carries consequences ... many of us may claim to trust God but act inconsistently.

We explore the Name of Allah "al-Wakeel/al-Wakil" and see how building a relationship with this Name increases faith, tranquility, and serenity.

God's Most Beautiful Names

Allah is Al-Malik (The King)

Human ownership is temporary and transient ... the ownership of God is permanent and real.

As we reflect on Allah's Names "al-Malik/al-Maalik", we recognize that a relationship with Him enables us to subjugate what we own to please the One who owns us.

God's Most Beautiful Names

Allah is Al-Samad

Allah "as-Samad" ... how many times have we recited it, yet how few of us have ever sought to know God through it!

He is the One who needs no one, yet everyone is in desperate need of Him.

God's Most Beautiful Names

Allah is Al-Afuww (The Pardoner)

Burdened by sin?

Wish you could just start a new page?

This is a reflection on an attribute even broader than forgiveness through the Name of Allah "al-Afuww" that provides precisely that for God's servants who would seek it.
