20. AL-‘ALEEM – THE ALL-KNOWING
The One with the most comprehensive knowledge, extending to everything seen and unseen, present and future, near and far, existing and non-existing. His knowledge precedes, and is the cause of, existence.
Isn’t it a comfort to know that He already knows the affairs of the world, and is not unknown to your trials and the pain of the Ummah. Rather, He is with His Knowledge Most Wise, therefore He also knows what is the best time for our relief and help.
There falls not a leaf but He knows it, nor a grain in the darkness of the Earth, nor anything green nor withered but it is all in a clear book.” [Quran, 6:59]
