The Beautiful Names of God: al-Khaliq, al-Bari & al-Musawwir

Peace, one and all…

I recently came across an excellent series of video lectures by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani, of Seekers Hub, exploring the Divine Names of God.  As such, I wanted to share these videos here.  May they be of benefit.

This lecture explores three Divine Names connected with creation: al-Khaliq, al-Bari and al-Musawwir.  One of the principal Quranic passages in which we encounter these Names is this one:

‘He is God, the Creator, the Evolver, the Bestower of Forms (or Colours). To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare His Praises and Glory: and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise’ (59:24)

God willing, I also hope to share some of the insights from the wonderful Physicians of the Heart on these Names.  The authors of the book have also produced a very helpful website: Physicians of the Heart.

Ask olsun,
Abdur Rahman
