Al Baseer – The All Seeing
Make Yourself Conscious About Al Baseer
“Verily, He is the All-Hearing, al-Baseer.”
Exemplary principles concerning the beautiful names of Allaah.
Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih Al-‘Uthaymeen D. 1421 H
Translated by Moosaa Richardson
Revised 2nd Edition with additional commentary.
Everyone has a desire to live a good life with respect. Sometimes due to unwanted situations, we get distracted from what our religion has taught us. We assume that none is watching over us, so we stray from the right path secretly. As a result of doing a wrong act one time, sometimes we make ourselves accustomed to such activities. This behavior leads to the anger of Allah Almighty. Besides this, wrong doings hurt others and bring injustice in the society. When you will recall the 99 Names of Allah, you will remind yourself that your every act is being watched by Him, because He is Al Baseer, which means: “The All Seeing”.
Realization of Al Baseer
Each and everyone of us constantly needs to remind ourselves that even when we do something secretly, Al Baseer is watching us and we will be accountable to Him one day. Only then, we will be successful in restraining ourselves from wrong deeds.
You can take the example of rulers of any country. Whatever they do being in power, it must be for the well-being of their people. But we often observe that it is seldom the case. If they think that they are not accountable to anyone being in power, and local people will not know their secret activities, then they should recall the 99 names of Allah Almighty. They will find Him Al Baseer, The All Seeing.
Al Baseer Is Watching Us
We all need to realize this fact by remembering all the 99 Names of Allah. He is aware of every single thought that crosses our minds. The sense of realization will generate guilt in you about your wrong doings. As a result, you will seek His forgiveness.
[He is] Creator of the heavens and the earth. He has made for you from yourselves, mates, and among the cattle, mates; He multiplies you thereby. There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing.
Surah Ash-Shuraá (42:11)
