The Greatest Name. *

k3k4s1h 21.03.10 - 04:35am
The GREATEST NAME is the Name which contains the meanings of entire of the Most Beautiful Names of Allah. The supreme Name is the GREATEST which mean the supreme, the highest, and the most exalted. According to that, the Greatest Name means the most comprehensive Name among the Divine Names which comprises entire of the Names. It is not known which Name is the Greatest Name definitely. The wisdom in keeping this Name secret is to encourage the remembrance of all Names with the probability that they might be the Greatest Name.

While that wisdom is mentioned in the Risale-i Nur, the attention is attracted to the point that the night of Al-Qadr in Ramadan, the acceptance hour of prayers in the day of Friday are kept secret for that wisdom. Besides this, in the Nur Collection, it is stated that every Name has a maximum degree and the saints considering the Greatest Name to be apart from each other is explained by stating that the Names they manifest are different. The real Greatest Name is concealed; the upper class is informed of it. However, every Name has a maximum degree and that degree is considered as the Greatest Name. It is because of that secret why saints find out the Greatest Name as different Names. (Barla Lahikasi)

The following explanation is made in the Thirtieth Flash from the Risale-i Nur Collection: The Greatest Name is not the same for everyone; it differs. For example, for Imam Ali (May God be pleased with him) it was the six Names. These are Al- Ferd (Single), Al- Hayy (Ever-Living), Al-Qayyoom (Self-Subsistent), Al-Hakeem (Sapient), Al-Adl (All-Just), and Al-Kuddus (Most Holy). For Imam al-Azam, it was two Names; Al- Hakeem and Al-Adl. While for Ghawth al-Azam it was Al- Hayy. For Imam-i Rabbani, the Greatest Name was Al-Qayyoom, and so on; many other people considered the Greatest Name to be different Names. Badiuzzaman, the author of the Risale-i Nur, reminds that just as the conceal of the night of Qadr in Ramadan and the conceal of time of death in life time, the Greatest Name is concealed among the Divine Names; besides this he indicates that every Name has a maximum degree in means of manifestation. (The difference between the manifestation of the Name of Creator in the creation of a minute particle and the manifestation of the Name of Creator in the creation of the entire universe is that degree difference and the second of them expresses a manifestation at the maximum degree.)

The Greatest Name is concealed. As conceal of time of death in lifetime, the night of Qadr in Ramadan, conceal of the Greatest Name in Names have a significant wisdom. In our opinion, the real Greatest Name is concealed; the upper class (the elite persons who have a high degree in knowledge) is informed of it. However, every Name has a maximum degree and that degree is considered as the Greatest Name. It is because of that secret why saints find out the Greatest Name as different Names. A eulogy of Imam Ali (May God be pleased with him) called Ercza takes place in the Mecmuat'l-Ahzab. He mentions the greatest Name in six Names. Imam Gazali explained those six Names that were mentioned by Hadhrat Ali and that encompassed the Greatest Name and he also declared their special qualities in his treatise called Cunnetul- Esma. Those six Names are Al-Ferd, Al-Hayy, Al-Qayyoom, Al-Hakeem, Al-Adl, Al-Kuddus. *

Religious scholars have related that Allah has three thousand names. One thousand are only known by angels, 1,000 known only by prophets, 300 are in the Torah (Old Testament), 300 are in Zabur (Psalms of David), 300 are in the New Testament, and 99 are in the Qur'an. This makes 2,999 Names. One Name which has been hidden by Allah is called Ism Allah Al-Azam: The Greatest Name of Allah. *

k3k4s1h 21.03.10 - 04:53am
Dr Sharib says :

Allah is the name of the Essence and the 99 most beautiful names are the
attributes or the qualities of Allah....According to some scholars Allah is the
al-ism al-azam, the greatest name.

As regarding the effect of the names Shah Wali Ullah of Delhi says this:

The divine names.... assume the form of luminous bodies in the Similitudinary
World, and there the angels obey them. When the Changer (God) turns them by
some kind of personal intention towards itself and pulls them to the desired object,
they incline towards it and the angels who are the servants of the divine names
yield to them.

Lamha 27. Sufism and the Islamic Tradition Trans: Jalbani. Octagon Press. 1980

Dr Sharib says:

According to the Sufis, one name of Allah manifests, dominates and exercises
sovereign control at (all) times. The name of Allah rules and governs the universe.
The name manifests His kingdom. When the period of the rule and manifestation
of one name comes to an end, then the turn comes for the rule and manifestation
of another name. The Qur'an says:
Everyday He is upon some task. (Qur'an 5:29.)

To the Sufis this refers to the manifestation of one name.

IZME AZAM (Unpoken name of Allah/God)
Ism-e-Azam are the great names of Allah, when recited invokes the mercy of Allah.

Laa ilaaha illaa anta, subhaanaka inniy kuntu minaz-dhaalimeen.

Hakim narrates in his Kitaab (pg.506) of the Hadith narrated by Saad ibn Abi-Waqqas (Radhiallaahu Anhu) that Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, Yunus (Alayhis salaam) made this Duaa at the time he was in the whale's stomach. A Muslim who makes Duaa with this, Allah will answer such a Duaa.

There are many views regarding Ism-e-Azam. This is just one of them, but the most preferred saying is, O Allah, verily I am asking you, verily I witness that you are definitely Allah, no God besides you are Ahadus-Samad, the One Who is Independent, The One Who does not give birth nor was he given birth to and there is none equal to Him. (Tirmidhi)

The Greatest of name Allah
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
It stated that Allah has 3,000 names: 1,000 are known only by angels, and 1,000 only by the prophets of Allah, who include Abraham, Moses and Jesus. The hadith goes on to say that 300 names for Allah are found in the Torah, 300 in the Zabur (Arabic for Psalms of David), 300 more in the New Testament, and 99 in the Koran. This makes 2,999 names. One last name -- hidden by Allah, according to some interpretations -- is called Ism Allah Al-Azam: The Greatest Name of Allah.
So what is the Ism Allah Al-Azam or Ismul Azam (the Greatest name of Allah)?
In a hadith the Messenger of Allah has stated ''To Allah belongs a Grand Name, that, if you make a du'a with it, it will be responded to. And if you plead or request with it, it shall be answered.'' So it other words whatever is asked by this 'Great Name' Allah will for sure fullfill it Insha Allah.

It was narrated from Abdullah bin Buraidah that his father said the Messenger of Allah heard a man say;

''Allahumma! Inni asaluka bi-annaka Antallahul-Ahadus- Samad, alladhi lam yalid wa lam yuwlad, wa lam yakun lahu kufuwan ahad.'' (O Allah! I ask You by virtue of Your being Allah, the One, the Self-Sufficient Master, Who begets not nor was begotten, and there is none co-equal or comparable to Him).''

The Messenger of Allah said:''He has asked Allah by His Greatest Name, which if He is
asked thereby He gives, and if He is called upon thereby He answers.'' (Sahih, Tirmidhi, 3857)

He salallahu alayhi wasalam said: ''He has asked Allah by His Greatest Name which, if He is asked thereby He gives and if He is called upon thereby He answers.''

Sad ibn Abi Waqqas (ra) said Allah's Messenger (SAAW) said;
''the supplication of Dhu'n Nun ( prophet Yunus peace be upon him) while he was inside the belly of a whale was:

''La ilaha illa anta subhanaka inni kuntu minaz zalimeen

Imam Muslim writes that Ubayy bin Kab (Allah be pleased with him) narrated that one day, the Prophet asked
''O Ubayy! What is the most excellent verse of the Quran?'' Ubayy replied, ''Allah and His Messenger know best.'' The Prophet said, ''In your opinion, what is the most excellent verse of the Quran?'' Ubayy bin Kab replied, ''Allah There is no god but He''(Ayat al-Kursi). The Prophet placed his hand on his chest and said, ''O Ubayy bin Kab! May your knowledge be pleasant for you.''

AYATUL KURSI

Hujjatul Islam Abu Hamid Al Ghazzali has stated the reason Aytul Kursi ( the verse of the throne) is the greatest verse in the Quran is because it is the verse which contains the The Greatest name of Allah

In a another tradition it is reported that the Messenger of Allah has stated that the ''Ism Al-Azam'' is revealed in these three chapters of the quran;
surah al Baqarah
surah Aali Imran
surah Taha
but the Messenger of Allah did not specify the exact verse of the named chapters to indicate which is the Greatest Name of Allah. So many schloars of Islam have come to various interpretaion of what the Greatest Name could be after concluding their own research into the matter:

''Allaah! Laa ilaaha illa Huwa al Hayyu al Qayyum (none has the right to be worshipped but He the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists).'' - Al-Baqarah (2):255

''Allaah! Laa ilaaha illa Huwa al Hayyu al Qayyum (none has the right to be worshipped but He the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists).'' - Aali Imran (3):2

''Wa anateel wujuhu lil Hayyil Qayyum (And (all) faces shall be humbled before (Allaah) the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists).'' - Ta-Ha (20):111
This was related by Hafiz Ibn Katheer in his tafseer (explanation of the Quraan).

Various traditions that other scholars have stated:

It is reported that Imam Ar Razi rahimullah once saw a dream in which the Ism al Azam was revealed to him. In the dream he saw that Ism al Azam was;

Hu Allah, Allah Allah al ladhi la illaha illa Rabbul arsheel Azim.

Whoever reads the Qur'an will have read the Greatest Name probably without knowing it. Some of the companions of the Prophet, may Peace & Blessings of ALLAH Be upon Them, knew the Name. Ali Karramallahu Wachah (the fourth caliph), may ALLAH exalt him, was one who knew.

ALLAH has hidden certain things out of His mercy. He has hidden the most righteous people is His eyes (Awliya), so people should respect one another indiscriminately. He has hidden His greatest Name in the Qur'an so people will read the entire Qur'an.

One should memorize the 99 Names for one's own benefit. However learning the Names by heart is not the aim. The aim is to find the One who is Named.

There is a Hadis related by Abu Umama which says that the Greatest Name with which prayer is accepted is in these three Suras of Qur'an: Al-Baqara, Al-Imran and Taha.

In Al-Baqarateh verse is '' Wa ilahukum ilhum wahid.....verse 163

In Al-Imran teh verse is '' Alif Lam Mim. Allahu la ilaha illa huwalhayy al -Qayyum (1,2). ''

In Taha the verse is '' wa'anatilwucuhu...(III) *

Hadis States: Asma, radiyallahu anha, reports that Prophet Muhammad , peace & Blessings of ALLAH be upon him, said: '' The Greatest Name of ALLAH is in these two verses of Qur'an , ' He who is worshiped by you is one GOD, there is no god but Him, the compassionate and the beneficent (Sura II,163); Also in the first part of Sura Ali Imran, Alif Lam Mim -- ALLAH, there is no god but Him, the Alive, the Self-Subsistaning.'' *
