AL-HAYY – THE EVER LIVING ONE

Al-Hayy – The Ever Living One

The One Who has perfect life, existing in and of Himself and not dependant upon anyone else. The Sustainer of the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth, the One Who regulates their affairs and provisions. The Living includes all of the Attributes of His Self and The Sustainer includes all the Attributes of His Actions.

"Allah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of (all) existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is (presently) before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great." (Quran, 2:255)

"Allah – there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence." (Quran, 3:2)

"And (all) faces will be humbled before the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence. And he will have failed who carries injustice." (Quran, 20:111)

"And rely upon the Ever-Living who does not die, and exalt (Allah) with His praise. And sufficient is He to be, with the sins of His servants, Acquainted" (Quran, 25:58)

"He is the Ever-Living; there is no deity except Him, so call upon Him, (being) sincere to Him in religion. (All) praise is (due) to Allah , Lord of the worlds." (Quran, 40:65)
