The most Beautiful Names are of God

Chapter TAA-HAA – 20

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)


 لَهُۥ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا وَمَا تَحْتَ ٱلثَّرَىٰ  6

  وَإِن تَجْهَرْ بِٱلْقَوْلِ فَإِنَّهُۥ يَعْلَمُ ٱلسِّرَّ وَأَخْفَى  7

 ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ لَهُ ٱلْأَسْمَآءُ ٱلْحُسْنَىٰ  8

6.  Unto Him belongeth  whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, and whatsoever is between them, and whatsoever is beneath the soil.


7.  And if thou speakest aloud, then lo! He knoweth the secret (thought) and (that which is yet) more hidden.


8.  Allah! There is no God save Him. His are the most Beautiful Names.

6.  LaHuu  maa  fis-samaa-waati  wa  maa  fir-‘arzi  wa  maa  bay-nahumaa  wa  maa  tahtas-saraa.


7.  Wa  ‘in-  tajhar  bil-qawli  fa-‘innaHuu  ya’-lamus-sirra  wa  ‘akhfaa.


8.  ‘Allaahu  laaa  ‘ilaaha  ‘illaa  Huu.  LaHul-‘Asmaaa-‘ul-Husnaa.




It is commanded: Along with being a Supreme Ruler, Allah Almighty is The Owner of all things too. He should not be considered as the kings of the world; who can command due to having authority, but they are not owners of everything. Allah Almighty is Supreme King. And besides it; He is A Rightful Proprietor of the entire things also. He provides an inventory of those things which are in His possession that everything which is above the surface of the earth and which is beneath the surface, He is The Owner of all of them.


It is found from this statement that whatsoever any mankind possesses – wealth, strength and life etc. The Owner of all such things is Allah Almighty. And these entire things under the possession of mankind are committed to the trust and care of human beings; and they should use them according to His Commandment.


After that, about the Knowledge of Allah Almighty has been described that He knows every hidden and open thing, secrets and whatsoever is hidden in the secrets. Whatsoever is said aloud or by whispering, in addition; whatsoever is in the hearts and concealed in thoughts but does never come on the tongue, He knows all very well. Moreover He is Aware of those thoughts also about which any mankind has not thought so far, concerning which; it is commanded “and (that which is yet) more hidden”.


This discussion manifests that Who possesses these all Epithets, is Able to be A Worshipped. And it is great violation to bow before any other than Him (Allah Almighty) for adoring. All most beautiful names are of Him only.
