    Typos on #66 Al Wahid and #86 Al Muqsit

    Is "Allah" also included in the name, or has it a separate meaning?

    I've heard this from Moulana Zulfiqar (DB) and he cites it from a Farsi tafsir of Qur'an. He mentions the mufassir is also quoted numerous times by Mufti Shafi (RAH).

    Interestingly, i've heard that some Shadhilli's make dhikr of "Hu" but Shaykh Nuh (DB) doesn't. Feel free to verify this with his murids re: the dhikr of "Hu". This doesn't mean he doesn't subscribe to the tafsir of the name of ALLAH as his murids gave him a hadiya of a set of rings

    Then he said, "They wrote on it 'Huwa Hu', and the matter is like this".

    When i told one brother the other day about Shaykh Nuh's (DB) rings and "Huwa Hu" and we've both heard the bayan of Ml Zulfiqar (DB) and the tafsir. He said that there is another tafsir that says rather than the actual name being "Hu", its the silent "h" in the letter "ha". SubhanALLAH, he said its the universal dhikr of ALLAH Subahana wa ta 'ala made by all of his creations in their breathing. Thus some pious people of the past made it a point to recognise that in breathing, they were in constant dhikr of ALLAH thus could/should never sin.

    One question though in breaking down from the first alif leaving lam (shaddah fatha) ha (dhuma) (LLAH). How is it that this is then broken down to lam (kasra) lam (shaddah fatha) ha (dhuma) (liLLAH)? Were did the extra 'lam' come from? the break down should go to a lam (kasra) lam (fatha) ha (dhuma) (liLAH)? Is is still recogniseable if the word had been written that way in arabic (i.e. lilLAH instead of liLLAH)?

    JazakALLAH wasalams
