AL-WASI – THE ALL-ENCOMPASSING
He is the One Who is vast with respect to His Attributes and qualities and those things linked to them -this from the point of view that none can enumerate His praise as He deserves, rather He is as He has praised Himself. Vast in grandeur, authority and dominion, Vast in bestowing grace and good and Vast in Goodness and Nobility.
"The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed (of grain) which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies (His reward) for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing." (Quran, 2:261)
"And do not trust except those who follow your religion." Say, "Indeed, the (true) guidance is the guidance of Allah . (Do you fear) lest someone be given (knowledge) like you were given or that they would (thereby) argue with you before your Lord?" Say, "Indeed, (all) bounty is in the hand of Allah - He grants it to whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Wise."(Quran, 3:73)
"O you who have believed, whoever of you should revert from his religion - Allah will bring forth (in place of them) a people He will love and who will love Him (who are) humble toward the believers, powerful against the disbelievers; they strive in the cause of Allah and do not fear the blame of a critic. That is the favor of Allah; He bestows it upon whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing." (Quran, 5:54)
