Allah Is Near You

Who will mend their sorrows and who will ment their broken hearts, he is AL-JABBAR. He is AL-JABBAR. ALLAH (SWT) says

هُوَ اللَّهُ الَّذِي لَا إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْمَلِكُ الْقُدُّوسُ السَّلَامُ الْمُؤْمِنُ الْمُهَيْمِنُ الْعَزِيزُ الْجَبَّارُ الْمُتَكَبِّرُ ۚ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ
He is Allah—there is no god except Him: the King, the Most Holy, the All-Perfect, the Source of Serenity, the Watcher ˹of all˺, the Almighty, the Supreme in Might,1 the Majestic. Glorified is Allah far above what they associate with Him ˹in worship˺!
{Surah Al-Hashr:23}

My my brothers and sisters allah says, he is allah, he is the king, it controls everything. He is the holy one. He is the one in who everyone could put their trust in. He is the one who is also overseer of all things. He is the honorable. He is al-jabbar. The compeller, the mender, the healer, the one who puts things back together, the one who after something is broken in your heart, in your body and your mind. Allah (swt ) he is the one who solidifies it, who brings it back together.

Who mends it again. He is the one who brings things back to righteousness after they are corrupt. He is the one who fixes and to him, everything ends. How does it end by fixing, everything falls into place, until everyone receives what is rightfully theirs. Al-mutakabbir, the superior, supreme, glory be to him how perfect he is far away from what people associate partners with him, who do you turn to other than Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala al-jabbar.

Brothers and sisters in islam, establish a relationship with every name of allah subhanahu wa’tala after this night in a way you have never established before. Whatever situation you’re in whatever feeling that you fall into, there is always a name of allah subhanahu wa’taala that you can fall back on. Allah has not left us like that. When allah (swt) send down adam (as) onto this earth, he wasn’t angry at him. When adam and eve ate from the tree, allah wasn’t angry at them. We don’t see the verses talking in anger. The context of the verses is more that allah only wants best for you. You have wronged yourself, like……. To allah among the best examples, like a father and mother how they feel towards their children, when they see their children going the wrong way.

They just don’t understand and their heart bleeds for them allah. Allah (swt) only wants the best for us. So he put us on earth, he said, i will watch over you and i will be with you and i will continue to send my guidance to you all the way. I’m not going to leave you alone. You’re going to mend, your broken heart, you’re going to mend. What you have broken for yourself, i’m going to help you in doing that.

You’re going to do it. When you mend your own breakage with allah (swt) being your guide, you become stronger, happier, you become more important , don’t you?

Brothers and sisters in islam, the name of jabbar appeared only once in the quran in suratul hashr. A lot of people don’t understand this name very well. In fact, a lot of us hardly use it in our dua. In arabic when you say al-jabbar the first thing that comes to our mind is a negative sense or one of a strong,
Overpowering sense the compeller this is not the only meaning.
