Peace, one and all…

Ramadan mubarak!

Welcome to the first of this year’s Ramadan posts.  In this first post, I would like to share this excellent video lecture on the Divine Name al-Ghaffar (the Forgiving).

  1. There is a verse in the quran that states “his are the most beautiful names(asma ul husna)” on reading the kernel of the kernel by allama muhammad hussain tabatabai I discovered an interesting interpretation of the above verse given by hazrat Ali (as) when on being asked what were the most beautiful names of god or asma ul husna he replied “nahnu asma ullah” i.e. “we are the names of god”.A name is something by which an entity or object is known or recognized similarly according to the explanation provided by hazrat ali (as) the Imams of ahlulbayt are the proofs through whom one can acquire divine gnosis or marifa.
