99 Names of Allah: Al-Muhaymin

Allah is Al-Muhaymin, i.e. the Observer and the Witness, Who knows all secrets and what is even more secretive than secrets. Al-Muhaymin knows the deception of the eyes and what the breasts conceal. He sees all things, both hidden and seen, and what lies behind them.

In life, there are people who know but lack the power to do things right, and there are others who have the power but lack the knowledge. Allah, Al-Muhaymin, is the Only One Who is able to fulfill people’s benefits from the view-points of both, knowledge and power.

Al-Muhaymin is with you if you travel, protecting and supporting you; and at the same time, He SWT is at home protecting your family and kids. Some people wrongly claim that they got both knowledge and power. Well, how about knowledge of future events? Al-Muhaymin knows it all!

“But Allah knows all that is in the heavens and on earth: He has full knowledge of all things” (49:16). He is Al-Muhaymin!

“They do not have any supporter besides Him; and He does not associate anyone in His command” (18:26). He is Al-Muhaymin.

Al-Muhaymin also means that Allah is the Trustworthy Protector. Since He knows everything about His slaves, He’s their Best Protector. “Therefore Allah is the Best Protector; and He is More Merciful than all those who show mercy” (12:64). He is Al-Muhaymin. If you know Al-Muhaymin, He will make you victorious, will make your words truthful and will make your belief rightly guided. “Fear not: for I am with you, All Hearing and All Seeing” (2.:46).This is your Lord, Al-Muhaymin. Know Him, and you shall never know fear.

And when Abraham was thrown in the fire, “We said: O fire, become cool and peaceful upon Ibrahim” (21:69). This is Al-Muhaymin!

“And We inspired the mother of Moses: Suckle him; then when you fear for him, cast him into the river and do not fear nor grieve” (28:7). Moses’ mother did what might appear as the most foolish thing by throwing him in the river, but because she knew Al-Muhaymin, it was not!

“And remember Jonah, when he left in anger, assuming that We would not restrict him. he therefore called out in the realms of darkness saying: There is no God except You, Purity is to You;I have indeed committed a lapse” (21:87), so Al-Muhaymin rescued him from three darkness. “We therefore heard his prayer and rescued him from grief; and similarly We shall rescue those who have faith” (21:88). Al-Muhamin!

Al-Muhaymin dominates over and disposes with all things. Everything is under His Divine Control and nothing is left unheeded or neglected. Your knowledge of Al-Muhaymin will cut off your hopes for anyone but Him; and will make you beseech none but Him. “So fear Allah and maintain friendship among yourselves; and obey Allah and His Noble Messenger, if you have faith” (8:1)!

Al-Muhaymin dominates over all things, so once and for all, just trust in Him! And you shall never regret.
