Day 21: Al-Wahhaab ~ The Giver of Gifts, The Bestower


Apologies for the delay, you can download the worksheet for Day 21, Allah’s Name – Al-Wahhaab – HERE.

You can also download the colouring page for this name HERE.

Shaykh Nasir As-Sa’dee says in his book “Explanation of the Beautiful and Perfect Names of Allah”:

Ar-Rahman, Ar-Raheem, Al-Barr, Al-Kareem, Al-Jawwad, Ar-Ra’uf, Al-Wahhaab.

All of these Names are close in meaning and all of them point to describing the Lord with mercy, generosity and kindness. They point to the great expanse of His mercy and gifts that encompass all that is existence, being granted in accordance to the dictates of His wisdom. The believers have been specifically singled out for this and they granted a goodly and best portion of this as Allah said:

“My mercy encompasses all things and I shall decree it for those who have taqwa. [Al A’raf 7:156]

All blessings and the various aspects of beneficence are from the effects of His mercy, generosity and kindness just as all beneficence in this world and in the Hereafter are from the effects of His Mercy.

“(They say): Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and grant us mercy from You. Truly, you are Al-Wahhaab” [Ali ‘Imran 3:8]
