Al-Qarīb (The Near)

Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Allah Almighty says:

{When My slav es ask you concerning Me, I am inde ed ne ar. I respond to the call of the supplicant when he calls upon Me; so they should respond to Me and believe in Me, so that they may be guided.}

[Surat al - Baqarah: 186]

This is a question that Allah Almighty Himself answers in a verse that pours feelings of joy, intimacy, contentment, tranquility, reassurance, and certitude in the heart of every believer.

In the atmosphere of this intimacy, affection, and closeness, let us get acquainted with Allah’s name “Al-Qarīb”.

Al lah Almighty says:

{He is indeed All - Hearing, Near.}

[Surat Saba’: 50]

This is a name that abounds with amiability and many remarkable meanings and indications.

As a word, this name already says enough about its meaning, just as a clear glass shows the water therein.

Our Lord, Exalted be He, Who is Near His servants and is established over His Throne, which is above His creation. He is All-Knowing of all secrets and innermost thoughts and feelings. His companionship encompasses all.
