Al-Fattāh (The Superb Judge)


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

O you who are bored and tired of life and its troubles, difficulties, and anguishes! There is impending help, support, and relief. Indeed, after distress comes relief and after hardship comes ease. There is hidden care and kindness from your Lord all around you. There is a bright hope, a good future, and a true promise.

{It is the promise of Allah. Allah does not fail in His promise...}

[Surat ar-Rūm: 6]

With the Greatest Judge, you will have joy and relief from your distress and grief.

Allah Almighty says about Himself:

{...And He is the Greatest Judge, the All-Knowing.}

[Surat Saba’: 26]

Our Lord, Exalted be He, opens sealed hearts through guidance, faith, and piety.

Our Lord is the One Who will open, judge, and rule between His servants in justice on the Day of Judgment. His rulings are free from  any semblance of injustice. It is sheer justice and truth. Indeed, Allah is the Best of judges.

{Say: “Our Lord will bring us together; then He will judge between us in truth. And He is the Greatest Judge, the All-Knowing.”}

[Surat Saba’: 26]

Our Lord removes distress, sends relief, ends hardships, bestows abundant mercy, opens the door of sustenance, and facilitates for His servants such things that reform their affairs and lives.

{Whatever mercy Allah grants to people -none can withhold it; and whatever He with holds -none can release it thereafter. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.}

[Surat Fātir: 2]

Our Lord, Exalted be He, is the One Who opened the doors of knowledge, wisdom, and insight for His prophets and pious servants.

{...And fear Allah; Allah will teach you. And Allah is All-Knowing of all things.}

[Surat al-Baqarah: 282]

It is our Lord Who enabled the conquest of kingdoms and countries by His pious and believing servants.

{Indeed, We have given you a clear conquest.}

[Surat al-Fat-h: 1]

And it is our Lord Who opens the doors of many blessings for the sinners, by way of gradually drawing them to punishment.

{So when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, We opened for them the doors of every [good] thing until, when they rejoiced in that which they were given, We seized them suddenly, and they were then in despair.}

[Surat al-An‘ām: 44]

Another meaning of “Al-Fattāh” is opening by rule, and that is the Shariah of our Lord.

And there is also opening by divine decree and predestination, which involves justice and benevolence from the Most Compassionate.
