Sura Hadid (57) 02/10/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 57 (Hadid)

Sublime attributes of Allah (SWT)

Verse 3: He is the First and the Last, the Evident and the Immanent: and He has full knowledge of all things.
The attributes of Allah (SWT) are given here: Al-Awwal (First) and Al-Akhir (Last) that is Allah (SWT) is independent of time. He is the Ad-Dhohir (Evident) through His attributes of Creator, Merciful, Provider etc and is also Al-Baatin (Immanent/Hidden) that is no vision can see/grasp Him. Lastly, He has knowledge of everything from the depths of the Heaven; to the Depth of the Earth to the Depths within the heart of people.

The quality of All-Knowing is illustrated beautifully in S58 V7:

“See you not that Allah doth know (all) that is in the heavens and on earth? There is not a secret consultation between three, but He makes the fourth among them, – Nor between five but He makes the sixth,- nor between fewer nor more, but He is in their midst, whosesoever they be: In the end will He tell them the truth of their conduct, on the Day of Judgment. For Allah has full knowledge of all things.”
