4 thoughts on “AL LATIF…………THE SUBTLE

  1. JazaaikAllah hu Khairan, may Allah reward you for the beautiful explanation with the ayahs of the Quran.

    Al Latif is my favorite name and I have suggested it to a young man who has just taken shahada. Please make dua that he chooses a muslim name that best guides him in the future.


  2. Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullah
    One of the beautiful meanings of this beautiful attribute Al Latiif is The Unfathomable – The one who works in ways we cannot comprehend with minds, encompass with imagination. SubhaanAllah, this attribute is paired in Quraanic ayaat with Al Khabeer – The all Aware. He, swt is unfathomable, yet He, swt is all aware – aware of our external and internal movements and lack of them and aware of our hidden intentions behind them. For the believer with total trust in Al Latiif, knows that His gentle and sublime Lord will guide him in the most unfathomable ways.

    As Yusuf (a.s) says : 12:100 And he raised his parents to the highest place of honour; [97] and they [all] fell down before Him, prostrating themselves in adoration. [98] Thereupon [Joseph] said: “O my father! This is the real meaning of my dream of long ago, which my Sustainer has made come true. [99] And He was indeed good to me when He freed me from the prison, and [when] He brought you [all unto me] from the desert after Satan had sown discord between me and my brothers. Verily, my Sustainer is unfathomable in [the way He brings about] whatever He wills: [100] verily, He alone is all-knowing, truly wise!

    وَرَفَعَ أَبَوَيْهِ عَلَى الْعَرْشِ وَخَرُّواْ لَهُ سُجَّدًا وَقَالَ يَا أَبَتِ هَـذَا تَأْوِيلُ رُؤْيَايَ مِن قَبْلُ قَدْ جَعَلَهَا رَبِّي حَقًّا وَقَدْ أَحْسَنَ بَي إِذْ أَخْرَجَنِي مِنَ السِّجْنِ وَجَاء بِكُم مِّنَ الْبَدْوِ مِن بَعْدِ أَن نَّزغَ الشَّيْطَانُ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ إِخْوَتِي إِنَّ رَبِّي لَطِيفٌ لِّمَا يَشَاء إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ (12:100)

    Wa Allahu A’alam( Allah, swt alone knows best.
