The Name of Allah Al-‘Aleem العليم (Part 14)

Allah particularized Himself with the knowledge of the unseen, and He informed us that no one knows it except Him. We have to single Allah out with the attribute of the Knowledge of the unseen – علم الغيب .

When people see that their dreams are coming true all the time, they think they know the unseen, not knowing that they are whispering from the Shaytan as a test from Allah. Do they believe they know what is going to happen in the future? Or do they believe that no one knows about the future except Allah? The influence of people’s dreams might even persuade them to the extent that they say that their dreams never fail them. If you think you know the future you have committed Shirk.

Even the jinn do not know the unseen. In Surat as-Saba [34:14]:

“Then when We decreed death for him [Sulaiman (Solomon)], nothing informed them (jinn) of his death except a little worm of the earth, which kept (slowly) gnawing away at his stick, so when he fell down, the Jinn saw clearly that if they had known the unseen, they would not have stayed in the humiliating torment.”

When the worm of the earth ate Sulaiman عليه اسلام ‘s stick, he fell from it. The Jinn then came to know the truth: Read the rest of this entry

The Name of Allah Al-‘Aleem العليم (Part 13)

The Name of Allah العليم is one of His greatest Names. If a person acts upon this Name, it will help him take care of his heart. When a person is aware of Allah’s knowledge of even the slightest movement of his heart, he knows that Allah will surely take account of it.

Allah has particularized the Knowledge of the Unseen to His Noble Self.

In Surat al-An’am [6:59]:

“And with Him are the keys of the Ghaib (all that is hidden), none knows them but He. And He knows whatever there is in (or on) the earth and in the sea; not a leaf falls, but he knows it. There is not a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything fresh or dry, but is written in a Clear Record.”

Tawheed consists of affirmation and negation.

“و عنده مفاتح الغيب لا يعلمها إلا هو”  is a statement of Tawheed (monotheism).

Negation: لا يعلمها (No one knows the Unseen)

Affirmation: إلا هو  (Except Allah)

This is Tawheed in regards to the Attribute of the Knowledge of the Unseen – صفة علم الغيب

In Surat an-Naml [27:65]:

“Say: “None in the heavens and the earth knows the Ghaib (unseen) except Allah, nor can they perceive when they shall be resurrected.”

Negation: لا يعلم من في السماوات و الأرض الغيب No one in the heavens and on the earth knows the unseen.

Affirmation: إلا الله (except Allah)

Allah mentions in many verses in the Qur’an, that He is the All Knower of all the unseen – علام الغيوب. In Surat al Luqman [31:34], Allah mentions five examples of the unseen: Read the rest of this entry

Al-Kihaanah (Soothsaying/Fortune Telling)

Today, soothsaying / fortunetelling has taken a different form than in the past. We imagine magicians and fortunetellers to look like people in a dark gloomy place, but nowadays they have taken a modern form – you can find soothsayers and fortune tellers in offices with secretaries booking appointments. Many people fall into this without knowing that it is Kufr and Shirk.

Before we can understand the details of soothsaying and fortune telling, we have to affirm three things: Read the rest of this entry
