Communicate Through Allah’s Names

Dec 23, 2021

This is an article from The Divine Names Series.

A Cherished Muslimah is the queen of communication.  She wisely says everything she needs to, knowing the importance of speaking up for equity and justice.

‘O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even if it be against yourselves, your parents, and your relatives, or whether it is against the rich or the poor...’
An Nisa (4:135)

She knows her words have power, and she is wise when communicating.

Communicating with Knowledge & Wisdom

This December, cultivate the habit of wise communication by submitting to Allah’s names of knowledge and wisdom, communicating with others as an act of worship.

A Cherished Muslimah submits to His knowledge, knowing that He is the one who knows, hears and sees everything.  She connects to His wisdom by informing others what is happening for her, and wise and truthful communicates that. 

Here are twelve beautiful and lofty names of Allah, through which you can become a better communicator:

KNOWLEDGE

AL-MU’MIN (7)

Submit to Al Mu’min, the one who knows the details of your well-being. Know that all you can do is your best, leaving the result to Him.

AL-FATĀH (19)

Ask Al Fatah to expose/open the truth whilst using undeniable truths.

AL-ALĪM (20)

Allah is Al Alim, the one who knows everything. Submit to His knowledge of everything while you do not. Know that when communicating with others, we can only be certain of our own truths, and not the truth of others.

As Sami is the all-hearing. Submit to Him, knowing that He hears everything.  And in this knowledge, listen to others.
