Names of Allah?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Are MAJEED, QADEER, and QAREEB name of Allah SWT?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

 

Al-Majeed  means The All-Glorious, The All-Majestic

Al-Qadir  meansThe All-Able, The All-Capable.

Al-Qareeb means  the Close.

The three qualities of Allah mentioned above are referenced in the Quran.

 

Allah says:

They said:

Do you wonder at the command of Allah. The Mercies of Allah and His Blessings are upon you, Oh people of the household (of Ibrahim). Verily He is Praiseworthy, Glorious.[1](Al-Majeed)

Then is not the One who created the heavens and the earth able (Al-Qadir) to create the like of them again? Oh yes indeed for He is the All-Creating,  the All-Knowing.[2]

Now if My servants ask you regarding Me, then indeed I am near (Al-Qareeb). I answer the call of the caller when he calls upon me.[3]

 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
