Asmaa'ul Husnaa Part 5

16. Al - Qahhaar: The One who has control over all things

He is the Ever-dominating One, who has surrounded all His creation, from without and within, with His irresistible power. Nothing can escape Him.

One who is fully inclined towards this world should read this Ism continually: if Allah wills, he will be freed from the love of this world and, instead, Allah's love will become inborn in his heart.

17. Al - Wahhaab: The Giver of all things

He is the Donor of all, without conditions, without limits, without asking any benefit or return, giving everything to everyone, everywhere, always.

A poverty stricken person should recite this Ism constantly; or write it and keep it on him (as a ta'weez); or read it 40 times in the last sajdah of SalaatudDuhaa (Chast): he will be freed from poverty in an unexpected and amazing manner - Insha-Allah. For a particular need to be fulfilled, observe sajdah thrice in the courtyard of the house or masjid and then the lift the hands (as in du'aa) and read this Ism 100 times: if Allah wills, the need will be fulfilled.

18. Ar - Razzaaq: The Sustainer and Provider

He is the Sustainer. Sustenance is needed to maintain the creation. (Both physical and spiritual sustenance.)

Anyone who blows in all four corners of his house after reciting this Name 10 times in each corner before Fajr, Allah will open for him the doors of rizq (sustenance); sicknesses and poverty will never enter his home.
Note: Begin from the right-hand corner while facing the Qiblah.

19. Al - Fattaah: The Rermover of difficulties and Giver of decisions

He is the Opener and the Solver, the Easer of all that is locked, tied and hardened.

Anyone who places both his hands on his bosom after Fajr salaah and recites this Name 70 times, his heart will be illuminated with the "Noor (light)" of Eemaan - Insha-Allah.

20. Al - Aleem: The All Knowing

He is the One who knows all. He knows what has happened and what is happening and what will happen from the beginning to the end.

Anyone who recites this Ism abundantly, Allah will open for him the gates of knowledge and wisdom. Moreover his heart will be filled with the Ma'rifah (cognizance) of Allah.

21. Al - Qaabid: The Straightener of sustenance

He is the One who constricts. All existence is in the power of Allah. The life on this planet is a test for us, but Allah does not test His servants above their ability.

Whoever writes (with saffron or by the mere action of ones finger) this Name of Allah on four morsels of bread (roti) each day for 4 days and eats them, will be safeguarded against hunger, thirst, injuries, pain, etc - Insha-Allah.
