البصير

Al-Baseer

It means The All-Seeing / The Seer of all.

This beautiful Name of Allah is repeated in the Holy Quraan more than 40 times. For example:

Surah Al-Shura (Ash-Shurah) 11;

(42:11). (He is) the Creator of the heavens and the earth: He has made for you pairs from among yourselves, and pairs amongcattle: by this means does He multiply you: there is nothing whatever like unto Him, and He is the One that hears and sees (all things).

Surah Al-Nisaa (An-Nisaa) 58: 

(4:58). Verily! Allah commands that you should render back the trusts to those, to whom they are due; and that when you judge between men, you judge with justice. Verily, how excellent is the teaching which He (Allah) gives you! Truly, Allah is Ever All-Hearer, All-Seer.

Surah Aali-Imran 15:

(3:15). Say: Shall I inform you of something better than that? For those who keep from evil, with their Lord, are Gardens underneath which rivers flow wherein they will abide, and pure companions, and contentment from Allah. Allah is Seer of His bondmen, 

Surah Al-Mulk 19:

(67:19). Do they not see the birds above them, spreading out their wings and folding them in? None upholds them except the Most Beneficent (Allah). Verily, He is the All-Seer of everything.

*****************************************************************************

Allah sees everything along with its external and  internal details. Nothing is hidden from Allah. So Allah sees a tiny insect in the darkness of a night, with all its organs inside its body. Allah sees everything under the 7 earths as HE sees in the heavens and above the 7 heavens. Allah sees and controls the activities of all organs inside the bodies of the creation, even inside the nucleus of every cell, the activities of the chromosomes, genes and DNA etc. is watched and controlled by the Creator Allah. Allah said in the Holy Quraan that Allah sees the treachery of one’s eyes and turning and moving of everyone’s eyelids. Read the translation of the following verse:

Surah Al-An’aam 103, (translation only): 

(6:103). No vision can grasp Him, but His Grasp is over all vision. He is the Most Subtle and Courteous, Well-Acquainted with all things.

*****************************************************************************

Here Allah used the words, “Laa tudrik’ hul absaar wa huwa yudrikul absaar”.

These words mean that Allah can see and ,perceive all looks /eyes/vision. Allah also knows the intention of each and every one behind his/her/its looks while no one’s looks can reach to see Allah!!!!!!!!

Ibn. Al-Qayyim rahmatullahi alaihi said: “ Al-Baseer is the ONE WHO has tremendous seeing power and can see details of even small particles of the creatures, their organs, muscles, blood in their veins, and their brains, and also sees a small black ant on a (black) rock in the darkness of a night.” Allah provides sustenance to a small insect inside a rock as Allah sees it and knows its needs.

The Prophet (Allah’s Peace and Blessings be upon him) said in a hadeeth (seen in Muslim and Bukhari), that Allah has two eyes. He said this when he salla Allaho alaihi wa sallam was talking about Dajjaal. He salla Allaho alaihi wa sallam said that Dajjaal is a’oor (one-eyed) and surely your Lord (Allah) is not a’oor.

Also we must think about the verses in which this Attribute of Allah is mentioned. For e.g. surah Al-Hajj 61 (Translation only);

  1. That is because Allah causes the night to enter the day and causes the day to enter the night and because Allah is Hearing and Seeing.

*****************************************************************************

This indicates Allah’s Hearing of all voices and sounds, and seeing the actions and movements of all during the course of day and night at all different times and in different circumstances.

Similarly in other verses like ASH-Shura 27, Al-Taghabun (At-Taghabun) 2, and Ghaafir 20 there are wise lessons for us to fear the All-Seeing Allah and watch our thoughts and actions.

So a Muslim believing that Allah sees him everywhere and at all times, shall fear Allah and watch his actions. Even he/she will control his thoughts as well as will do Al-Ihsaan in worshipping. He/she will try to keep away from sins and disobedience to Allah and Allah’s Messenger salla Allaho alaihi wa sallam.

Al-Ihsaan is mentioned in a long hadeeth narrated by Umar rAa in which the Prophet (Allah’s Peace and Blessings be upon him), while answering the questions of Jibreel alaihi salaam, said about Al-Ihsaan that it is to worship Allah as though you were seeing HIM and in the belief that although you are not seeing HIM, yet truly HE sees you.

(Muslim)

Many people stopped from disobedience to Allah and from making sins because of the fear that Allah is watching them.
