Al Bari name of Allah means The Originator, the one who by His power originated, created and fashioned the created beings upon their separate forms without any prior example to follow and who created and fashioned the souls in the wombs.
As well as the creation is to preordain and decree things and give them measures in due proportion, the evolving then is to bring that to existence, as shown in Allah’s saying:
Al Bari In Quran
No misfortune can happen on earth or in your souls but is recorded in a decree before We bring it into existence: that is truly easy for Allah.Surah Al-Hadid 22
Al Bari Meaning in English
Al Bari in English means The Maker, The Creator who has the Power to turn the entities. According to some learnt men, to evolve then is to cause things to exist after being decreed, and give each of them the distinctive features and shape by which it is characterized, according to certain laws and regulations set by Him Almighty, to which all things are subject.
Based upon this concept, Allah Almighty brings all of His servants to life, after He had decreed the creation of all of them from the loin of Adam until the Day of Judgement, and known for each his deed which will lead him either to the Garden or to the fire of Hell.
In this connection, it is narrated by Al-Bukhari and others on the authority of Abdullah: Allah’s Apostle, Allah’s blessing and peace be upon him, the true and truly inspired said:
- The matter of the Creation of a human being is put together in the womb of the mother for forty days, and then he becomes a leech-like clot for a similar period, and then a piece of flesh for a similar period.
- Then Allah sends an angel who is ordered to write four things. He is ordered to write down his deeds, his livelihood, his (time of) death, and whether he will be blessed or wretched (in religion).
- Then the soul is breathed into him.
So, a man amongst you may do (good) deeds till there is only a cubit between him and the Garden and then what has been written for him decides his behavior and he starts doing (evil) deeds characteristic of the people of the (Hell) Fire.
Similarly a man of you may do (evil) deeds till there is only a cubit between him and the (Hell) Fire, and then what has been written for him decides his behavior, and he starts doing (good) deeds characteristic of the people of the Garden.
This is the order upon which the whole creatures come, beginning from the stage of creation, in which the decrees pertaining to their making are preordained.
Then, those decrees are put to practice, thereby the creatures come to existence; and finally, they are given their distinctive features and forms, with which everyone is known and distinguished from the other: Blessed, Glorified and Exalted be He, the Creator, the Evolver, the Bestower of Forms and Colours.
Al Bari Name of Allah
As to the celebration of Allah by the Name “Al-Bari'” (the Evolver), it removes all kinds of evil and impurities from the hearts, and purifies the bodies, and makes souls shine in glory and brightness.
The one who intends to supplicate Allah by it should call to mind the things created by Allah Almighty, as if they are living beings present before him, in order to have Allah’s Power of creation and evolving manifest in his sight.
He further has to call to witness his repentance to Allah from all of his sins, and devote himself wholeheartedly in invocation to Allah Almighty, with the willingness to strive with might and main, and sacrifice himself for the sake of Allah, his Creator and Evolver, to Whom it is up to accept his repentance.
To sacrifice oneself for the Sake of Allah is to transcend beyond the material desires and lusts of pleasure, to overpower whatever evil one might have within himself, in order to give room for spirituality and holiness, which help one to be more willing to repent from his sins, and get his heart and soul purified.
It is beneficial for one to supplicate Allah by that Name:
O (Allah) the Evolver of souls with no (previous) example (to follow), and the Bestower of sustenance upon (Your) creatures in all of their states.
O (Allah) the Evolver of the worlds after they had been nothing, which You have brought to existence with the help of Your Mercy, Bounty and Generosity: the universe is but a limited shade, and the sun of the fact is an evidence for its (existence) pertaining to the one that witnesses, and the subject of the witness; and Your Light is the most obvious Sign: for You are the One Who exists before all things, and (people’s) knowledge of You is prior to (their knowledge of) all things.
