As Samee – The all Hearing
“Verily, He is as-Samee’, the All-Seeing.”
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.
There are different sort of problems in everybody’s life. All human beings at one point of the time or the other feel helpless. There comes a moment when we don’t want to tell anybody about how we are feeling except Allah. Because we know that there is nothing impossible for Him and He can take us out from every problem. To tell all the human beings, that their Creator is always As Samee – The All Hearing, He has indicated it in the 99 names of Allah.
Pray to As Samee
Let us look at our daily routine. We wake up and perform the daily tasks which are the part of our routine. The students go to institutions, the employees go to their jobs and some remain busy due to house chores. That’s the way the day starts and ends doing and finishing daily life activities. Life is not always as smooth as we think.
Suddenly when we face some problem we feel helpless. We feel like there is no escape from the problems. Then we recall our Creator and pray to Him. This is often the time we make a call to Him. Allah Almighty has already mentioned in 99 names of Allah that He is As Samee.
Remember Allah In Every Situation
Call Him, He is listening even if you are not calling Him. He knows very well what’s going on in your heart and mind. He responds to the one who is calling Him if He likes as He is al-Mujeeb (The Ever-Responding One). Whenever you are having good days in life don’t be proud of yourself and ungrateful as He is hearing you all the time. Be very cautious about the words you use and remember the 99 names of Allah Almighty.
“Certainly those who argue about the Signs of Allah without any authority having come to them have nothing in their hearts except pride, which they will never be able to vindicate. Therefore seek refuge with Allah. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing.”
(Surah Ghafir, 40:56)
