Nonetheless, wedo forget our Lord!


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

He is the Most Great, His dominion is so grand, His status is so high, and He is very close to His servants and so gentle with them.

His Lordship is that of greatness and majesty.

{Exalt the name of your Lord, the Most High.}

[Al-A‘la:1]

His Lordship is about blessing, increase, and giving.

{...Blessed is Allah, Lord of the worlds.}

[Al-A‘rāf:54]

His Lordship involves concealment and forgiveness.

{... A good land, and a forgiving Lord.}

[Saba’:15]

His Lordship brings honor, strength, dominance, and invincibility.

{The Lord of the heavens and earth and what is between them, the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving.}

[Sād: 66]

His Lordship is mercy.

{The Lord of the heavens and earth and what is between them, the Most Compassionate...}

[Al-Naba’: 37]

His Lordship is generosity.

{O man, what has deceived you concerning your Lord, the Generous One?}

[Al-Infitār: 6]

There is no god except Allah, the One and Only God. We have not worshiped You properly as You deserve.

He who knows that Allah is the Lord of lords would not be pleased with other than Him as a Lord, and when he gets this pleasure, he tastes the sweetness of faith. The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is authentically reported to have  said:

“Whoever is pleased with Allah as a Lord, with Islam as a religion, and with Muhammad as a Messenger, has indeed tasted the sweetness of faith.” 

[Narrated by Muslim]

{And say: “My Lord, forgive and have mercy, and You are the best of those who are merciful.”}

[Al-Mu’minūn: 118]

Ibn Rajab (may Allah have mercy upon him) said: “Persistently supplicating Allah by mentioning His Lordship is one of the best means for getting the supplication answered.”

Our Lord, we hope for Your mercy. Do not leave us to our own devices, even for the blink of an eye, and admit us into Your mercy.
Our Lord, forgive and have mercy, for You are the best of those who show mercy.
