Reflecting on the Names of God by Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui

We want to “know” God, but as finite beings we are veiled from His Sublime Essence by His Attributes, which are in themselves beyond the capacity of human understanding.

We do however everyday witness and experience His Actions in the created world. How can we open our eyes to this reality to make us closer to Him?

Beyond describing some of His Attributes on an intellectual level, can we as servants of God ever taste their meanings with our heart?

How Should God’s Names Affect Our Lives?

Just memorizing a bunch of words is no use if they don’t really have any impact in our lives.

So let us look at some of Allah’s beautiful names and how they influence us if we really grasp their meaning.

1.     Ar Rafeeq – The Gentle

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said to his beloved wife Aisha:

Allah is gentle and He loves gentleness. He rewards for gentleness what is not granted for harshness and He does not reward anything else like it. (Muslim)

Oftentimes we become so zealous with regards to our Islam that we become downright harsh with others whom we deem as going astray. That is not at all the way of the Prophet. He was always gentle in calling others to the truth. He was gentle even with a Bedouin who urinated in his masjid.

Remembering Ar Rafeeq will have the effect of making us gentle and kind to others all the time, hoping that Allah will deal with us gently and not harshly despite our sins...
