Al-Awwal (The First)

“He is the First, the Last, the Manifest and the Inward. He is the All-Knower of everything.” (Surah al-Hadid:3)

Allah, all praises and glory be to Him, is al-Awwal, the First, there was none before Him. He is also al-Akhir, the Last, and there will be nothing after Him. The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, would make dua:

“You are the First, there was none before You. You are the Last, there will be none after You. You are the Manifest, there is nothing above You. You are the Inward, there is nothing close to you.”

SubhanAllah let’s draw closer to Allah by calling on Him by these Beautiful and Perfect Names, reminding oursleves that from Allah we come and to Him we return.
