An Introduction to the Lord of the Worlds – Day 16

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

[Note: I started this section on Day 10. I mentioned 5 Names there. However, I added Ar-Raaziq and Al-Qayyum. Today and tomorrow, insha-Allah, I’ll also be adding Al-Kafeel, Al-Haseeb, and Al-Kaafi to that list, because they are all related to the issue of tawakkul.]

I’d like to add one more point to yesterday’s post:

[I just found out about it which is why I’m adding it today.]

One reason for Allah using the Name Al-Hayy (the Ever Living) for the One that should be relied upon is that the idols that the pagans (at the time of the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)) worshipped were dead:

وَالَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّـهِ لَا يَخْلُقُونَ شَيْئًا وَهُمْ يُخْلَقُونَ

أَمْوَاتٌ غَيْرُ‌ أَحْيَاءٍ ۖ وَمَا يَشْعُرُ‌ونَ أَيَّانَ يُبْعَثُونَ

“Those whom they (the polytheists) invoke besides Allsh have not created anything, but are themselves created. (They are) dead, lifeless, and they know not when they will be raised up.” [Surah An-Nahl (16) : 20-21]

So, these idols were dead so why bother relying upon them?
