Sura Hashr (59) 17/10/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 59 (Hashr)

The Beautiful Attributes of Allah
Verse 22-23: Allah is He, than Whom there is no other god; who knows (all things) both secret and open; He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Allah is He, than Whom there is no other god; the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection), the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of Safety, the Exalted in Might, the Irresistible, the Supreme: Glory to Allah! (high is He) above the partners they attribute to Him.

Allah (SWT) is the one and only being worthy of ultimate service and surrender. He is All Knowing and nothing in the depths of the ocean or in the heavens escapes Him. He is the sovereign – the king, who is rightfully the one to govern and legislate. He is the Holy One without fault or impurity. All peace comes from Him, peace through calmness of faith and protection of standards of fairness and justice. All power rests with Him, and furthermore recognizing and accepting that He is the one and only that should be raised to a level of exaltation and greatness. He is immune to imperfection and nothing can be compared to Him, yet we try to establish demi-gods when there is no rightful comparison. What an unjust and unforgivable act.

Cross reference: Sura 4 verse 48 “Allah forgiveth not that partners should be set up with Him; but He forgiveth anything else, to whom He pleaseth; to set up partners with Allah is to devise a sin Most heinous indeed.”
