The Names of Allah Al-Khaliq, Al-Bari’ and Al-Musawwir
Almighty Allah says:
He is Allah, the Creator, the Inventor, the Fashioner; to Him belong the best names. Whatever is in the heavens and earth is exalting Him. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise. (Al-Hashr 59:27)
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Allah has ninety-nine Names, i.e., one hundred minus one, and whoever believes in their meanings and acts accordingly, will enter Paradise; and Allah is witr (one) and loves ‘the witr‘ (i.e., odd numbers).” (Al-Bukhari)
Dr. Yasir Qadhi continues his commentary on the Beautiful Names and Attributes of Allah Almighty. Al-Khaliq is the One who brings things into existence from a state of non-existence. The One who has the power to change things back and forth between the states of existing and non-existing.
The Name Al-Bari’ is the One who sends new forms into existence. The One who manifests that which is in perfect harmony and proportion, without blemish or fault.
