DAILY ISLAMIC REMINDERS. Yaum Al-Khamis, 25th day of Shaw’waal. (Thursday, 26th of May, 2022).
*_IMPORTANCE OF BASMALAH (saying: Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem OR BismilLah)_*. BismilLah.
The Holy Messenger for Mankind Muhammad(sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is reported to have said: “Any action of importance not begun with basmalah(BismilLahir Rahmaanir Raheem) is devoid of blessing and therefore incomplete.” The basmalah begins the Surah al-Fatihah and therefore opens the whole Quran.
The Almighty describes HIMSELF by means of HIS Attributes. The Attributes of ALLAH are a means of us becoming knowledgeable about HIM. ALLAH , in this respect, does not only introduce the Quran but HE also introduces HIMSELF. The basmalah is an invocation of the Divine Being by HIS supreme Name (ALLAH), followed by two of HIS most beautiful names (Al-Rahman and Al-Rahim), which are in fact two of His principal Divine attributes, The Most Merciful to all HIS creation and especially Merciful to those among HIS creation who chooses to serve him.
According to the Quran (59:24; 17:110), unto ALLAH belongs the most Beautiful Names. (Asmaa-ul-Husnaa). These Attributes and Names are of a paramount importance since we know the Divine Being through them. So as Muslims we should never start anything without saying Bismillah and we should end anything by saying Alhamdulillah. We should appreciate ALLAH by saying SubhaanAllah and praise ALLAH by saying Maa Shaa ALLAH, Allahu Akbar. Also NEVER EVER promise doing anything without adding IN SHAA ALLAH(If God permit or by the permission of the CREATOR).
*_We ask ALLAH, AL-QUDDUS to keep guiding our eemaan and protect us from any plot of sheitan_*. Aameen.
