42:11 Nothing is like Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer.
“Know, “Nothing” existed before “Allah”. The Majestic Name (Ism) “Allah” itself is not God in itself in Islam. It is the Majestic Word. The venerable al-Husayn b. Ali taught what we refer to by the Majestic Name “Allah” is a Majestic Word. This Majestic Word is different from God’s Own Self. Whoever worshiped the Name, not the meaning, became a misbeliever and, in fact, worshiped nothing. Whoever worshiped the Name and its meaning jointly, he became a polytheist worshiping two gods. Whoever worshiped the meaning of the Word “Allah”, in reality has truly worshiped Allah. This Majestic Word refers to identifying the All Power which is the Nameless, Formless All Indescribable, All Existing so we can worship it with gratitude. The venerable Ja’far al-Sadiq approved referral to what we identify with the Majestic Word “Allah” as a “Thing” “unlike other things”. This “Thing” has no beginning and no end and It just is. From “It”, the All Nameless Indescribable All Power, came forth everything and all, including the Word “Allah”, referred to as “The Godhead” in English. This Nameless Indescribable All Power named Itself “Allah”, meaning that Indescribable “Thing” which is solely worthy of all worship, after “It” brought forth existence by Its Sublime Will. “It” can be described in a way we can understand Majesty as the Indescribable “All Nothing”. Everything that is – came forth from within this Majestic “All Nothing”. Everything returns to the “All Nothing”. We came from the All Nothing we refer to as al-ilah, “Allah” Most Majestic, and shall be returned to the Indescribable Nameless All Nothing. All Nothing is the Real. Allahu Haqq. From “inside” the All Nothing all existed and came forth. “To Allah we belong and to Allah is our return”. “It”, the “All Nothing” we call by the Majestic Word “Allah”, is what holds everything together and yet apart, also preventing it from colliding. “It” holds the oceans apart, “It” holds gravity, in “It’s” Power is the existence and functioning of everything and all to its very subatomic level and beyond description. Nothing of everything exists but that it contains the (Power of) All Nothing in it from within which everything came forth. The All Nothing created everything and everything came forth from the All Nothing. Nothing of everything exists but that it is controlled by the All Nothing. The All Nothing created everything and everything came forth from the All Nothing. The All Nothing exists in everything now here forever always and “It” just “Is” دَائِم – Da’iman abadan, or “Perpetually Continual Forever”.” – Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin
