Lord Of The Words



LESSON # 4 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
FAATIHAH-1 (THE OPENING)
Lord Of The Words
Verse –1 of 7,  Section – 1 (Part 1)

Praise be to ALLAH, Lord of the worlds
Al-Hamdu LILLAHI RABBIL-
Aalamiin


Lesson

There are some words in this verse. Please understand their meanings first. As per Arabic language “Al” means “All”, Particular”. “Hamd” means-Praise, Excellence, Qualities, characteristics etc. These meanings are higher than praise-worthy actions and gratitude.

“ALLAH” is personal name of The God Almighty. This name neither can be used for any other, nor is used for anyone except The God Almighty. This word “ALLAH” has not been concluded from any other word. This name is particularly used only for The God Almighty.

“RAB” means that God, Lord, Master and Creator Who created the entire things, and then promoted them from one state/condition to the other.

“Aalamiin” – (means the entire creatures, all the existing, all the parties and all the worlds).

In this verse some knowledge about Allah Almighty has been given and explained that all the praises are, in fact, only for Allah Almighty. Whenever any Ruler acts upon justice, it means that Allah Almighty has put the attribute of justice in that Ruler. If there is restoration of health, cure in the hands of anyone (doctor), it means actually this perfection has been delivered to him by the Allah Almighty. If some one is beautiful, or it has nice habits, then for it also, The Allah Almighty is the Life, Who donated this beauty to that person/thing.

It is also revealed from this verse that God of Islam is not only The God of a particular race, a particular tribe or nation. All the religions which were in existence before Islam were not aware of this vast conception. Each nation supposed that The God is only of their God. As though, the capacity/means of the God remained only as their national God. Israelite, who had faith on oneness of God, considered The God as only of their God. But The Holy Qur’an effaced all their incorrect fidelity and explained that The God of all the things and atoms in the universe is only One “The Allah Almighty.”
