Asma ul Husna #5- Al Mujeeb

Al- Mujeeb

The One Who Responds

  • Prayers of those who beseech Him. He relieves those who seek refuge in Him and He placates their fears. He even answers the prayers of the unbelievers and those who are heedless when, in the throes of despair, they call out to Him.
  • Allah answered the prayers of Abraham, Zechariah, John the Baptist, Jesus, and indeed every one of His prophets and messengers, peace be upon them all. They beseeched their Lord with utmost humility and sincerity, so He, in His infinite grace, safeguarded them, guided them, honored them, and accepted their appeals.
  • Allah is the one who answers the prayers of those who beseech Him and place their hopes in Him. Allah alone is the one to whom all prayers and supplications are to be made.
  • Allah has enjoined supplication upon us and He has promised to answer our prayers. This is why `Umar used to say: “I do not worry that my supplications will be answered. I worry about my supplications themselves.”
  • In other words, when a person is blessed to beseech the Lord, this itself is the benefit. As for the answer, that is something which has already been granted.
  • Allah is the one who removes our distresses. He reminds us: {It is Allah who delivers you from these and from every distress, but again you set up others (with Him).} (Al-An‘am 6: 64)
The Benefit of Knowing Allah, Al-Mujeeb:
  • Awareness that Allah is the Answerer of Prayers is a comfort and source of strength for those who are cut off from all other hope or recourse, with only Allah to turn to. At this time, they turn to Allah with the sincerest and most devoted heart, so Allah quickly relieves their burdens and removes their afflictions.
  • Such is the experience of those who are languishing in prison without anyone to come to their defense. 
  • Such is the experience of the person lost alone the wilderness. 
  • Such is the experience of the sailor whose ship is being tossed at sea in a violent tempest.    
  • Such is the terminally ill person whom doctors have given up hope for and who recovers after turning to Allah. 
  • Such is the oppressed who is victimized by the mighty, about whose prayers Allah says:
“By My Might and Majesty, I will grant you victory, though it be after a time.” (Sunan At-Tirmidhi, Sunan Ibn Majah)
