Asma-ul-Husna: Al-Azeez – The Mighty


Allah has decreed: ‘Most surely, I will prevail,
I and My Messengers.’ Verily, Allah is Powerful, Mighty. The Arabic expression
‘Al-Aziz’ means, ‘The Mighty’; One Who is dominant
and cannot be dominated. One Who is powerful
and superior over all else. ‘Al-Aziz’ is that striking being, Who alone has
the power to bestow prophet hood upon man, and to guide mankind
towards righteousness. It is this eminent attribute of Allah that has allowed
great prophets of the past to succeed in their
respective missions. The chief of all prophets,
the Holy Prophet (saw), was undoubtedly the most cherished
recipient of God’s limitless favours. At the dawn of the victory of Mecca,
the Muslims marched wholeheartedly, after being betrayed by
their treaty-bound brothers. This was a day where the inhabitants
of Mecca witnessed God’s might. The reign of cruelty which
had caused the followers of Islam unimaginable agony,
was brought to an abrupt end. The peaceful conquest of Mecca was made
possible only through God and His might. Allah’s might is widely experienced
by all prophets of this world. The Promised Messiah (as) came at a time
when people had become void of morality; and were ruled by Maulvis and extremists,
who no one dared to oppose. The Promised Messiah (as) expressed that at
the time of his claim not many believed in him. In fact, he (as) faced an onslaught of
ignorance, hatred, and ridicule. The Promised Messiah (as) faced numerous fatwas
and false court cases were made against him. In these moments,
it seemed almost impossible that the Promised Messiah (as)
and his Godly mission would prevail. But it was ‘The Might’,
‘Al-Aziz’, that silenced the jesters. Created love where
there had been hatred, and brought justice
in times of unfairness. ‘Al-Aziz’ stood like a mountain safeguarding
the Promised Messiah (as) from all forms of harm. This was the might of the powerful
God that enabled His devout servant to reign over his opponents, and to once again, radiate the ever bright light
of Islam upon the darkened world. ‘Al-Aziz’ is the great altruistic God, whose power is dominant
over all others. His might is a magnificent sign
of the truth of His prophets, and their prevalence is
evidence of His existence. This world would not be as it
is without the mighty Creator. It has been written and proven
time and time again that He will prevail. How then can one deny
His flourishing superiority?
