Seek refuge with Allah

  Allah: The Great and Glorious name. Going back to the root of the word, we learn a special meaning. Some say that the name comes from the root A-La-Ha. This means the one whom the hearts of people love, find peace in, are happy with, turn to, and accept as their God. Also, it is impossible for the heart to find peace or comfort with other than Him. For this reason, Faatimah radiallahu anha taught her daughter the supplication of the one who is in distress:

  “Allah,Allah, My Lord, I do not associate any partners with Him.”

“Say: ‘Allah[sent it down]’. Then leave them to play in their vain discussions.” (6:91)

“And He is the Irresistible, above His slaves…” (6:18)

“Allah is Very Gracious and Kind to His Slaves.” (42:19)

“They made not a just estimate of Allah such as is due to Him. And on the day of Ressurection the whole of the earth will be grasped by His Hand and the heavens will be rolled up in His Right Hand. Glorified be He, and High is He above all that they associate as partners with Him!” (39:67)

“And [remember[ the Day when We shall roll up the heavens like a scroll rolled up for books…” (21:104)

“Verily! Allah grasps the heavens and the earth lest they should move away from their places.”(35:41)
