In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Allâh’s Beautiful Name: Ar-Rub (The Lord, The One and Only):

Honorable brothers, as you already know

“ Allâh has ninety nine Names, a hundred minus one, he who knows them enters paradise”

[Agreed upon from Abu Hurairah]

And in the Qur’an:

“And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allâh, so call on Him by them…”

[Al_A’raf, 180]

It was reported thatthe prophet PBUH said: Allâh has a Name which is the Greatest one. What is the Greatest name? Some people said the ‘Hay and Qayyoom’ (The Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists). An acceptable interpretation states that the Greatest Name is the Name that concerns your condition; the Name “Ash-Shâfi’ (The Healing) is the Greatest Name for the sick people, Al-Mughni’ the (The all Provider/ ) is the Greatest Name for the poor, Al-Adl’ (The all Just) is the Greatest Name for the oppressed, ‘An-Nâser’ (The Helper/Supporter) is the Greatest Name for the subdued.Some scholars said that ‘Ar_Rub’ is the Greatest Name of Allâh because it is the closest Name to man, therefore Allâh the Almighty said:

“I swear by this city (Makkah) (1), And you are free (from sin, and to punish the enemies of Islam on the Day of the conquest) in this city (Makkah)(2), And by the begetter (i.e. Adam PBUH) and that which he begot (i.e. his progeny)”

[Al-Balad, 1-3]

 

The system of Fatherhood is a sign that indicates the greatness of Allâh:

In fact, the system of fatherhood is one of the greatest indications on the Greatness of Allâh. Man’s happiness is linked with his child's happiness, his peace is with his child's peace. The system of fatherhood refers to Allâh. The father is the man who wants his children to ne better than him him, he can only be happy if his children are safe and happy, therefore Allâh the Almighty said:

“I swear by this city (Makkah) (1), And you are free (from sin, and to punish the enemies of Islam on the Day of the conquest) in this city (Makkah)(2), And by the begetter (i.e. Adam PBUH) and that which he begot (i.e. his progeny)”

[Al-Balad, 1-3]

If a large firm wanted to recruit an employee, this employee goes through a probation period where all his mistakes are counted, if they are more than the accepted level, he would be rejected. But what if the manager of the firm wanted his son to be the employee? The aim here would be educating not counting the mistakes, the son is guided whenever he makes a mistake, he is taught and guided, that is the father’s case.

 

Ar-Rub is the compassionate father over his children:

If we said ‘All praise be to Allâh Lord of the Worlds’, what is the simple meaning of Lord :Rub" here? It is well known that a father provides a house for his family, provides furniture for the house, equipment, food and drink. If he his child is sick, he runs to the doctor for treatment and makes sure that he takes his medicine. if the father notices that his son has something that is not his, he would ask him, interrogate him and he may punish him in order to educate him. The simplest explanation for the meaning of ‘ Ar-Rub’ is the compassionate father towards his children, who provides the food, shelter, drink, needs, school, the private room, guidance, education, accounting for, punishment sometimes and honoring and rewards other times.
We can understand the meaning of this Name by thinking of a knowledgeable, merciful father, a father who works hard to provide his children with all their needs and raise their bodies, minds and souls, educate them socially, physically and sexually. This compassionate father, the knowledgeable, the merciful is not concerned with anything except his children’s destiny, their happiness, their faith, and their well-being. We can understand the meaning of this Name that could be the Greatest Name of Allâh from the fatherly concepts, that is why it is not strange that system of fatherhood is an indication of the Greatness of Allâh.

“I swear by this city (Makkah) (1), And you are free (from sin, and to punish the enemies of Islam on the Day of the conquest) in this city (Makkah)(2), And by the begetter (i.e. Adam PBUH) and that which he begot (i.e. his progeny)(3), Verily, We have created man in toil(4) ”

[Al-Balad,  1-4]

“The Lord” is the closest of Allâh’s Beautiful Names to man:

That Name was mentioned in the Qur’an. Allâh the Almighty said:

“(It will be said to them): Salam (peace be on you)- a Word from the Lord (Allâh), Most Merciful”

[Ya- Sin, 58]

“A fair land and an Oft-Forgiving Lord!”

[Saba’(Sheba), 15]

This Name might be the closest of the beautiful names to man, because Allâh the Almighty educates us; our bodies, minds and souls through His cosmic, and Qur’anic signs.

Allâh gave to each thing its complete form and then guided it aright:

Honorable brothers, Allâh the Almighty mentioned the concept of Lordship in many ayas. He said:

“Fir’aun (Pharoah) said: “Who then O Musa (Moses), is the Lord of you two?”(49), [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord os He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[ Ta-Ha, 49, 50]

He gave him the suitable figure, the right systems, the right senses, the right texture, the right features. He gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright.

 

 

 

The mosquito is one of the signs that indicates Allah's greatness:

1. A thermal reception system:

“Fir’aun (Pharoah) said: “Who then O Musa (Moses), is the Lord of you two?”(49), [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, aya 49, 50]

Let's think of one of the smallest creatures. A mosquito has a hundred eyes in its heart, three hearts in its chest, a central one and a heart for each wing. Each heart has two atria, two ventricles and two vlaves.

One of the most accurate meanings of Lordship is that Allâh the Almighty gave to each thing its form and nature. The mosquito needs to see things by their heat, not by their colors, size or shape. Allâh the Almighty gave the mosquito a thermal reception system, the sensitivity of this system is one 0.001 degree.

“Fir’aun (Pharoah) said: “Who then O Musa (Moses), is the Lord of you two?”(49), [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 49, 50]

He gave it a thermal system, that is a radar.

 

 

2. Blood analysis system:

The mosquito has a blood analysis system. Not every kind of blood suits it. It tests the blood first and then sucks it. That's why two brothers might sleep in  one bed, one of them wakes up with many stings and the other with nothing at all.

3. A liquefaction system:

A liquefaction system because the adhesiveness of the human blood does not flow in its trunk.

4. An anesthetization system:

The mosquito has an anesthetization system so that it wouldn't get killed during blood sucking. It sucks the blood and flies away. The effect of anesthetization ends, the human feels the sting in his hand, so he suspects that it is still on his hand, so he hits it while it is flying in the sky of the room laughing at him.

“[Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 49, 50]

He gave it an analysis system, a liquefaction system, an anesthetization system, a thermal reception system, forty eight teeth in its mouth, a hundred eyes in its head, three hearts in its chest; a central heart and a heart for each wing. Now there are six knives in its trunk; four knives that make square cuts, and two knives in the shape of two tubes in order to suck the blood, crooks in its legs to be able to stand on glass or soft surface, and claws in its legs to be able to stand on a rough surface.

“Fir’aun (Pharoah) said: “Who then O Musa (Moses), is the Lord of you two?”(49), [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 49, 50]

Allâh created man in the best stature:

 Allâh the Almighty said:

“Verily, We created man in the best stature (mould)”

[At-Tîn (The Fig), 4]

1. The Eye:

 

Allah gave you two eyes in order to realize the third dimension, with one eye you see the length and width, with two eyes you see the third dimension. He gave you two ears in order to recognize the direction of the sound, a horn of a vehicle might be blown on your right, this sound enters your right ear before the left one with a difference of 1/1620 second, in the brain there is a system that detects the time the two sounds were received, so it discovers that the horn is from the right side, andit gives the brain an order to move to the left side.

 

“ [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 49, 50]

 

 

 

2. The Hair:

Each hair has an artery, a vein, a nerve, a muscle, a fat gland, and a chromatin gland.

“Fir’aun (Pharoah) said: “Who then O Musa (Moses), is the Lord of you two?”(49), [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 49, 50]

There are a hundred and thirty million bacillus and a cone in the eye’s retina, a hundred and thirty million in one and a quarter millimeter, it means a hundred million light receptives in each square millimeter in order to distinguish eight million colors.

“[Musa (Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 50]

3. The Brain:

 

The water of the eye contains an anti-freeze material. The brain contains a hundred and forty billion depending dark cells the function of which are not known yet.

“ [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord os He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 50]

Talking about Allâh and the body takes years and years. Allâh the Almighty said:

“And also in your own selves. Will you not then see?”

[Adh-Dhâriyât, 21]

Check the meaning of Lordlship.

“[Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 50]

 

 

 

4. The Bones:

This happens in human body, human’s bones grow to reach the suitable level and then they stop growing. Scientists call this state the sleep of the bony cell. If a bone is broken at the age of seventy, the bony cell wakes up and renovates this fracture.

“ [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 50]

The hair has no nerves, otherwise you would have to go to hospital for full anesthesia in order to have your hair cut.

“ [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord os He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 50]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Greatness of Allâh in creating the fetus where:

1. Iron in the baby’s spleen:

Our understanding of things is superficial, if we go deeper in our creation, we would be able to see the Greatness of Allâh the Almighty. The meaning of ‘Ar-Rub’ is that He gave us everything we have. A baby does not get iron from his mother’s milk, so Allâh made an amount of iron stored in the infant’s spleen enough for two years until he is able to eat.

2. The sucking reflex:

Allah provides infants with  the sucking reflex. As soon as the baby is born, he/she devours his/her mother’s breast, closes his/her mouth tightly and sucks the air, then milk flows/comes.

3. Providing the infant with a fat solvent at birth:

The baby’s digestion system is full of a fatty material at birth. In the first two days, he doesn’t get milk, he gets a material that dissolves fat.

“ [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[ Ta-Ha,  50]

The Balance System in humans indicates Allâh’s Greatness:

This topic is endless, but what is the meaning of ‘Ar-Rub’? He gave you the ability to do everything you do, all the systems, tools, textures, and qualities that you need. There is an artery in the heart with no clear function, when some arteries are blocked, this artery is taken and placed as a spare tool for the heart.
Talking about the creation of man can be endless, but we can say that ‘Ar-Rub’ is the One Who  gave you everything you need, and then He guided; he guided you to your interests. He made a balance system in your middle ear so that you do not fall down while you are walking. That system has three canals with liquid and hairs above the liquid, that if you lean to the right, the liquid stays flat, it touches the inclined wall, the hairs sense, and get you back to your situation. Without the balance system,people could have never walk on their feet. The evidence is that you cannot make a dead man stand on his feet, he lost balance. With balance you have nice small legs, without the balance system, you would have needed a large base to lean on. The evidence is that in the fabric shops they place a statue of a woman with a seventy centimeter base in order to keep the body standing.

“ [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 50]

The Mother’s Placenta:

There is a fleshy plate that comes out with the fetus. This plate has unbelievable things; the mother’s blood circulation meets with that of the fetus and they never get mixed.  Each blood has a certain type, and it is known to doctors that if the blood received a different blood type, it would be decomposed causing the death of the mother and the baby . How don't the two bloods not get mixed? There is a membrane between the two bloods, called the wise membrane. This membrane takes the oxygen from the mother’s blood to the fetus’ blood. Here the wise membrane performs the role of the respiratory system. It takes the sugary substances from the mother’s blood to the fetus’ blood, so it performs the role of the digestive system. It takes the insulin from the mother’s blood to the fetus’ blood, so it performs the role of the pancreas. Now the fetus’ blood contains sugar, oxygen, and insulin. The sugar is burnt through the oxygen with the help of the insulin. The temperature of the fetus is 37°C, the burning process produces carbon dioxide that the wise membrane takes from the fetus’ blood to the mother’s to be part of the mother’s breathing. The immunity factors are passed to the fetus through the wise membrane making the fetus is immunized/protected against all the diseases the mother is infected with. The wise membrane chooses the right nutrition; protein, fat, sugar, vitamins, minerals, semi-minerals, as if it is a world of nutritional scientists, with the right rates for each hour. That is why doctors called it the wise membrane, if this membrane is handed to a group of excellent doctors, the fetus would die within an hour. If the fetus needs a specific substance that is missing in the mother’s blood, the mother craves for the food that contains that substance, the mother’s craving for some kinds of food is the fetus’ need to some nutrition.

“He gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 50]

Understanding the signs of Allâh in His creation leads to glorifying Him:

“..It is only those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear Allâh,..”

[Fatir, 28]

The more your understanding of the tiny signs of Allâh in His creation, the more you will glorify Him and become fearful and submissive to Him.

“Fir’aun (Pharoah) said: “Who then O Musa (Moses), is the Lord of you two?”(49), [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright”

[Ta-Ha, 49, 50]

Thinking deeply in the creation of the heavens and the earth:

He gave us the perfect creation, the whale weighs a hundred and fifty tons; fifty tons of fat, fifty tons of bones, fifty tons of meat, ninety barrels of fish oil, and its baby is fed with three hundred kilograms of milk three times a day.

“He gave to each thing its form and nature.”

[Ta-Ha, 50]

From a mosquito with different systems, to a blue whale that weighs more than a hundred and fifty tons.

“He gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright.”

[Ta-Ha, 49, 50]

When you think deeply in the creation of the heavens and the earth you find yourself before the Greatness of Allâh, as if thnking deeply in the creation of the heavens and the earth is the nearest way to Allâh, and the widest gate that leads to Allâh. Do not forget this verse:

“Fir’aun (Pharoah) said: “Who then O Musa (Moses), is the Lord of you two?”, [Musa(Moses)] said: “ Our Lord is He Who gave to each thing its form and nature, then guided it aright.”

[ Ta-Ha, 49, 50]

Follow up is a major factor in education:

Look at a compassionate, perfect, educated and merciful father how he follows up his children, when they go out, who their friends are, and why they are late. What did Allâh the Almighty say about this follow up?

“ Is then He (Allâh) Who takes charge (guards, maintains, provides) of every person and knows all that he has earned (like any other deities who know nothing)?

[Ar-Ra’d , 33]

Think of the doctor who visits a patient and asks for analysis, the blood pressure is high so he gives directions to stop salt. If the patient has anemia, he gives directions for giving him drugs that contain iron. The doctor always follows up the case of his patient, and he takes a decision for any lack, increase or extremism in the analysis. Allâh the Almighty says:

“ Is then He (Allâh) Who takes charge (guards, maintains, provides) of every person and knows all that he has earned (like any other deities who know nothing)?

[Ar-Ra’d,  33]

That is education, we repeat that the name ‘Ar-Rub’ is the closest of the Beautiful Names to humans because the human father is a father. Once I was walking in the street when I heard someone calling another saying: “Do you think that if he has no father, he has no Lord?” We have a Lord who raises us all and we are all in the intensive care if Allâh wills.

There is no Creator but Allâh:

Now there is another meaning of Lordship; Allâh is the only Creator of everything. This is a new meaning, Allâh the Almighty is the only Creator and there is no Creator but Allâh.

“ Allâh is the Creator of all things,..”

[Az-Zumar, 62]

He created

“..and He is the Wakîl (Trustee, Disposer of affairs, Guardian) over all things”.

[Az-Zumar, 62]

He acted, that is why our master Hûd said:

“..So plot against me, all of you, and give me no respite (55), I put my trust in Allâh, my Lord and your Lord! There is not a moving (living) creature but He has the grasp of its forelock. Verily, my Lord is on the Straight Path( the truth)”

[Hûd, 55, 56]

He challanges them. Allâh the Almighty is unique in creation and acting.

 Perfection of Creation indicates perfection of action:

 

A very accurate rule is that the perfection of the creation indicates the perfection of action, and there are many signs in this universe that indicate the Self -Existent (the One Who sustains and Protects all thst exists) of the heavens and the earth.
Allâh the Almighty has His Beautiful Divine Names and His best Attributes, Allâh the Almighty said:

“And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allâh, so call on Him by them…”

[Al_A’raf , 180]

It is not suitable nor acceptable to worship other than the Lord of the Worlds:

One of the meanings of Lordship, Allâh the Almighty said:

“He said: “ Do you not observe that which you have been worshipping (75), You and your ancient fathers ?(76), verily they are enemies to me, save the Lord of the ‘âlamîn (mankind, jinn and all that exists)(77)”

[Ash-Shu’arâ’,  75-77]

Who is the Lord of the worlds? Allâh the Almighty said:

“ Who has created me, and it is He Who guides me(78), And it is He Who feeds me and gives me to drink, And when I am ill, it is He who cures me(80), And Who will cause me to die, and then will bring me to life (again)(81)”

[Ash-Shu’arâ’,  78-80]

 

That is the Lord, so it is not appropriate, nor acceptable, nor reasonable to worship other than the Creator, Allâh the Almighty said:

 

“O mankind! Worship your Lord (Allâh), Who created you and those who were before you so that you may become Al-Muttaqin (the pious)”

[Al-Baqarah,  21]

“And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allâh, so call on Him by them…”

[Al-A’raf, 180]

Knowing the Beautiful Names of Allah is  important for Muslims' ideology:

The Name ‘Ar-Rub’ may be the Greatest Name of Allâh, even though the Greatest Name of Allâh is the Name that you are in an urgent need for. The Greatest Name for the poor is ‘The All Provider’, the Greatest Name of Allâh for the oppressed is ‘The All Just’, the Greatest Name of Allâh for the weak is ‘The Most Powerful’, the Greatest Name of Allâh for the defeated is ‘The Supporter/Helper, and the Greatest Name of Allâh for the ignorant is ‘The Omniscient’. You need the Beautiful Names of Allâh and His Divine Attribute in everything. Allâh the Almighty said:

“ Who has created me, and it is He Who guides me(78), And it is He Who feeds me and gives me to drink, And when I am ill, it is He who cures me(80), And Who will cause me to die, and the will bring me to life (again)(81)”

[Ash-Shu’arâ’,  78-80]

That is why dear brothers ‘Ar-Rub’ is the One who raises his slaves; their bodies and souls, and guides them to their benefits. He guides them through revelation, he guides them with successfulness then to paradise, he guides them to their interests with the systems and the features they were granted, and he guides them to Him through revelation and success, Allâh the Almighty said:

“Truly they are young men who believed in their Lord (Allâh) and we increased them in guidance”

[Al-Kahf, 13]

Then He guides them to paradise. That is why  knowing the Beautiful Names of Allâh is a major part of Muslims ideology, and it could be one of the most important features of Muslims ideology.

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of Creations
