73. YA AWWAL

damlak

The First

Exalted and Glorious

He is the First (nothing is before Him) and the Last (nothing is after Him), the Most High (nothing is above Him) and the Most Near (nothing is nearer than Him), and He is the All-Knower of every thing.  (57:3)

 

This name is another attribute of Allah that reveals and establishes His Being prior to and before anything.

 

He who would like to have a child but cannot or has a beloved person missing or has any over-whelming problems, if he repeats this name 1000 times for 40 Fridays, his desires will be fulfilled if Allah, the Most High wills.

 

Al-Awwal, the First.  He is the One Who nothing preceded in His existence.  He was the First before existence.  So believe in Him, and assert that He is the First of every manifest and unmanifest thing.  And there is nothing else with Him ever.

AL-AWWAL

 

Allah is the First.  Even when we say that He is before the before, the first “before” precedes the second and is comparable to it.  His being first is not at all related to that which comes after Him which is all existence, seen and unseen.  We should not think that while He is the First, there is still a second.  There is none like Him.  His firstness means that there is nothing prior to Him, that He is self-existent, that all arises from Him and that He is the cause of all that becomes.  By the grace of this attribute, the good servant should be the first in devotion, worship, and good deeds.

 

Abd al-Awwal is the servant who has been given the secret of the beginning and the end of everything. Such a person is aware of eternity and endlessness.

 

Whoever remembers to recite this Name 37 times before starting an important task may succeed more fully.

 

A couple who cannot have a child, someone who has a beloved person missing, or people with any kind of overwhelming problem should recite ya Awwal 1000 times for 40 consecutive Fridays.  They may then have their wish fulfilled.
