Ar-Rabb (The Lord and Cherisher)

“And your Rabb is the Ever-Forgiving, Owner of Mercy. Were He to call them to account for what they had earned, surely He would have hastened on their punishment. Instead they have their appointed time beyond which they will find no escape.” (Surah Al-Kahf [18]:58)

All praises be to Allah who is known by the Beautiful and glorious Name ar-Rabb, the Lord and Cherisher. He is the One who nurtures and sustains all of His servants. He is the One who regulates and governs all of their affairs.  He grants His servants infinite favours and blessings. More specifically, He is the One who nurtures and sustains his sincere friends by correcting and purifying their hearts, souls and manners. If we want this type of nurturing, we should call on Allah frequently by this Noble Name, Ar-Rabb, the Lord and Cherisher.
