The One who watches over and keeps under control the manifestations of His Names, with His names, at all times.


The One who unequivocally responds to all who turn towards Him (in prayer and invocation) and provides their needs.


The All-embracing. The One who embraces the whole of existence with the expressions of His Names.


The One whose power of knowledge appears under the guise of ‘causes’, hence creating causality and leading to the perception of multiplicity.


The creator of attraction. The creator of unconditional and unrequited love. The essence within every beloved!


The One whose majestic glory is evident through His magnificent manifestations!


The One who constantly transforms new dimensions of existence. As a requisite of the mechanism denoted by the verse “Everything in the heavens and earth asks from Him; at every instance HU (the Absolute Essence of Existence) manifests Himself in yet another way!”(Quran 55:29), al-Baith continually creates new experiences.

The expression of this name in respect to humanity is depicted in ‘amantu’(Comprises the six fundamentals of belief in Islam. It consists of belief in Allah, His angels, His books, His Rasuls, Doomsday [life after death] and destiny [qadar], that all good and evil are from Allah.)  as ‘to believe in life (resurrection) after death’ (bath’u badal mawt) and the verse “That you will certainly change dimensions and transform into bodies befitting those dimensions)”.(Quran 84:19)

We said ba’th (resurrection) is to taste death and to commence a new state of life after death… However, resurrection is also possible here on earth in this plane of existence. Like the resurrections of wilayah (sainthood), nubuwwah (prophethood), and risalah (the personification of Allah’s knowledge)! As all of these stations comprise new states of life.

To give an example, we may say ba’th is like the germination of a seed to sprout its plant, or ‘give shoot to new life’. Similarly, life emerges from death (dormant inactive potential). In relation to the new state of existence, the previous state is considered as a ‘grave’ (qabir).

That Hour (death) will definitely come – there is no doubt about it. And Allah will definitely resurrect the beings (individual forms of consciousness) in their graves (bodies) (to continue their lives through new bodies)!” (Quran 22:7)


The One who witnesses His existence through His own existence. The One who observes the disclosure of His Names and witnesses His manifestations! The enforcer of the reality that there is no other observer but Himself.


The absolute and unequivocal Reality! The source and essence of every function in manifestation!


The One who provides the means for self-actualization. The One who advocates and protects those who place their trust in Him, providing them with the most auspicious outcomes. He who believes in the potential of the name al-Wakil in his own essence, will have confirmed his faith in all the Names (all his potentials). The source of the mystery of vicegerency lies in this Name!


The One who transforms His power into the enabling potential for the manifestation of existence (hence comprising the force of the whole of existence).

The One who forms the angelic state.


The One who sustains the world of acts, the steadfast, the creator of robustness and stability, the provider of strength and resistance!
