لَوْ أَنْزَلْنَا هٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ عَلَى جَبَلٍ لَرَأَيْتَهُ خَاشِعًا مُتَصَدِّعًا مِنْ خَشْيَةِ اللهِ
وَتِلْكَ الْأَمْثَالُ نَضْرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ
هُوَ اللهُ الَّذِي لآ إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ* عَالِمُ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ هُوَ الرَّحْمٰنُ الرَّحِيمُ
هُوَ اللهُ الَّذِي لآ إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ* أَلْمَلِكُ الْقُدُّوسُ السَّلَامُ الْمُؤْمِنُ الْمُهَيْمِنُ الْعَزِيزُ الْجَبَّارُ الْمُتَكَبِّرُ سُبْحَانَ اللهِ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ
هُوَ اللهُ الْخَالِقُ الْبَارِئُ الْمُصَوِّرُ لَهُ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَى
يُسَبِّحُ لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ

Had We revealed this Quran (this truth) upon a mountain (the ego) you would have seen it humbled and shattered to pieces in awe of Allah (the realization of the nothingness of his ego or seeming ‘self’ in respect to the One denoted by the name Allah). And these examples (symbolic language) We present to mankind so that they will contemplate. HU is Allah, there is no god, only HU (as HU is the inner essence of the reality of everything that is perceived)! The Knower of the unknown and the witnessed! HU is the Rahman (the potential of the source of the entire creation; the quantum potential), the Rahim (the One who manifests the infinite qualities denoted by the Names and experiences the world of acts with and through their observation). HU is Allah; there is no god, only HU! (as HU is the inner essence of the reality of everything that is perceived)! HU is the Maleek (the Sovereign One who manifests His Names as he wishes and governs them in the world of acts as He pleases; the One who has providence over all things), the Quddus (the One who is free and beyond being defined, conditioned and limited by His manifest qualities and concepts), the Salam (the One who enables a state of emancipation from the conditions of nature and bodily life and endows the experience of ‘certainty’ [yakeen]), the Mu’min (the One who enables faith and guides individuals to observe their reality), the Muhaymin (the One who observes and protects the manifestations of His Names with His own system), the Aziz (the One whose will to do as He likes, nothing can oppose), the Jabbar (the One whose will is compelling), the Mutakabbir (the One to whom the word ‘I’ exclusively belongs; Absolute ‘I’ness belongs only to Him)! Allah is Subhan (exalted and absolutely pure) from the concepts of god they attribute to Him! HU is Allah, the Khaliq (the One Absolute Creator – the One who brings individuals into the existence from nothingness with His Names), the Bari (the One who fashions all of creation [from micro to macro] with unique functions and designs yet all in conformity with the whole), the Musawwir (the fashioner of forms; the One who exhibits ‘meanings’ as ‘forms’ and devises the mechanism in the perceiver to perceive them); to Him belongs the beautiful Names. Whatever is in the heavens and earth glorify (tasbih) Allah (by manifesting the qualities of the Names comprising their essence, i.e. by actualizing their servitude). HU is the Aziz (the One whose will to do as He likes, nothing can oppose), the Hakim (the One whose power of knowledge appears under the guise of ‘causes’, hence creating causality and leading to the perception of multiplicity).
In regards to the merit of these verses the Rasul of Allah (saw) says:
“If he who reads the end of the chapter al-Hashr during the day or night reaches the end of his term and is to die, if he dies during the day he will go to Paradise for reciting it during the day, and if he does during the night he will go to Paradise for reciting it during the night.” (This is the section that begins with ‘Huwallahulladhee la ilaha illa Hu…’).
Another hadith says:
“Whoever says ‘Audhu billahis sami’il alimi minash shaytanrrajeem’ three times in the morning and then recites the last three verses of the chapter al-Hashr, Allah will appoint seventy thousand angels for him who will pray for his forgiveness until the night. If that person dies that day he will die a martyr. If he dies at night, again, he will die a martyr.”
