Man’s relationship with his Lord

Who is our Creator, the Almighty Lord, and what is our relationship with Him?

Many a philosopher, since time immemorial, tried to find an answer to this question. They have written tones of volumes only to come out with crippled theories and cranky theologies!   In today’s world of spiritual supermarket, the leaders of man-made religions, themselves spiritually-bankrupt, successfully groom their followers into a more spiritually-challenged lot!

Prophet Ibraheem was no philosopher! He was a simple man with candid thoughts.

Taking a leaf from the life of Prophet Ibraheem, the Qur’an captures the most defining moment of his life in the most colourful a manner – more colourful than the more recent motion-picture camera could capture!

Listen to this picturesque answer!

“(Allah is He) Who created me, and it is He who guides Me;

 “Who gives me food and drink,

 “And when I am ill, it is He who cures Me;

 “Who will cause Me to die, and then will give life (again);

 “And Who, I hope, will forgive me My faults on the Day of Judgement”.

(And then Ibraheem prayed): “My Lord, endow me with knowledge and wisdom and join me with the righteous.

And grant me a reputation of honor among later generations.

And place me among the inheritors of the Garden of Pleasure.”

(The Qur’an: Surah Ash-Shu’araa: 78 – 85)

What better description can a human mind give about the strong bond between man and his Maker!

These humble words coming from the mouth of Prophet Ibraheem, the great grand Prophet of Islam, pierces the heart and illuminates the mind. It not only immaculately facilitates the concept of Creator, the Lord of the Worlds, but also defines man’s relationship with one’s Creator to the rest of his life and beyond!

In fact, these eight verses of Chapter 26 of the Qur’an seal the issue of God-man, Maker-made relationship for all times to come!

Nowhere in the world would you find such a finest description of Creator-created (خالق- مخلوق) and Worshipped-Worshipper(معبود – عابد)  relationship!

The above quoted answer of Prophet Ibrahim to the question ‘Who is the Lord of the Worlds?’ reveal the following aspects of Allah:

1. Allah is the Creator. He is al Khaaliq.

2. Allah is the Guide, the Giver of Revealed Knowledge, the Giver of Acquired-Knowledge. He is al Haadi

3. Allah is the Sustainer, the Giver of Provisions, the Quencher of Hunger and Thirst. He is Ar-Rabb, Al Razzaaq.

4. Allah is the Curer, the Healer. He is ash-Shaafee

5. Allah is the Giver of Death, the Taker of Life. He is al Mumeet.

6. Allah is the Giver of Second-life. He is al Muh’yee.

7. Allah is the Forgiver of sins. He is al Ghafoor, al Ghaf’faar, at-Taw’waab.

8. Allah is the One to Whom one must make du’aa. For, Allah is the Real Giver. He is al Wah’haab.

9. Allah is the One who listens to the supplications of His servants. He is as-Samee, al Mujeeb.

10. Allah is the Giver of knowledge and the Bestower of wisdom. He is Al ‘Aleem, Al Hakeem.

11. Allah is the Giver of Honour and Dignity. He is al Mu’iz.

The wanderer comes home. Darkness is lifted. Truth shines! Peace prevails! 

‘It is Allah who is My Lord and your Lord; then worship Him. This is a way that is Straight.” (The Qur’an: 3:51)
