Who Is Allah?


We can start with His name: How the name of Allah in Arabic forms a heart, showing us the reality of resurrection occurs with every heartbeat, literally, with thikr Allah.

Allah is also named Al-Rahman Al-Raheem, introduced to us in the first surah of the Quran, Al-Fatiha 1:1, the crown of the Quran. Here we discover that Allah the Exalted, who sustains all that exists, shows us in His names how He is the essential Yang/Yin dynamic that “powers” everything, uncontained by time, space or any constraints.

His Exalted name further expressed in the Shahada, expressing that there is no god but Allah.
