Al-Khāliq Al-Khallāq (The Creator, the Sublime Creator)

Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Look at this nature around you and the sky high above. Glory be to the One Who created this splendid universe. 

And ponder the perfect creation of the Superb Creator, and His signs and miracles. 

Who created the heavens and earth? Who created grains and seeds? Who created the morning, made the night tranquil, and rendered the sun and moon a means of calculation? Who created human beings from mud? Who created the entire humankind from one soul? Who gave everything He created its due proportion and then gave it guidance?

{This is the creation of Allah. So show Me what those other than Him have created...}

[Surat Luqmān:11]

Glory be to the One Whose magnificence dazzles the minds of those who know Him! 

Glory be to the One Whose miraculous signs are clear to those who reflect!

Glory be to the One Whose lights guide those walking on the path to Him! 

{...So blessed is Allah, the Best of the Creators.}

[Surat al-Mu’minūn: 14]

We pause here with two of the be autiful names of Allah Almighty: “Al-Khāliq” (the Creator) and “Al-Khallāq” (the Sublime Creator).
Allah Almighty says:

{Indeed, your Lord –He is the Sublime Creator, the All-Knowing.}

[Surat al-Hijr: 86]

He also says:

{He is Allah, the Creator, the Initiator, the Supreme Fashioner...}

[Surat al-Hashr: 24]

It is our Lord Who brought all things into existence after they had previously been non-existent. He created them in an unprecedented manner. Indeed, the actions of Allah Almighty are in the exact measure He gave to them.
