اَلْحَمْد

The first placement of the word اَلْحَمْد is in Verse # 01 Chapter # 01. The formation of the word اَلْحَمْد is very gigantic and humongous. The letter “Alif” & “Laam” are the symbols of “Allah” & “Lohe Mahfooz(Preserved Tablet)”. And the rest of the three letters “HaaMeem & Daal” are extracted from the word “Muhammad”.

The climax of Allah Subhan O Talah’s praise is manifested in Verse # 03, Chapter # 110, In which Allah Subhan O Talah explaining the how one should glorify his (اَلْحَمْد )فَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّكَ وَاسْتَغْفِرْهُ ڼ اِنَّهٗ كَانَ تَوَّابًا. What is the method of اَلْحَمْد? Float in his zikr. 

Creator of the universe is starting his ultimate book with a statement that ” All praise is for Allah—The ruler of the entire Universe “. I was curious and wanted to know praise of Allah is for whom.I put this question I found a reply in Verse # 56 and Chapter # 33 اِنَّ اللّٰهَ وَمَلٰۗىِٕكَتَهٗ يُصَلُّوْنَ عَلَي النَّبِيِّ ۭ يٰٓاَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْا صَلُّوْا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوْا تَسْلِــيْمًا . Indeed, Allah showers his blessings, and his angels pray for him. O, believers! Invoke Allah’s blessings upon him, and salute him with worthy greetings of peace.


The first placement of the word لِلّٰهِ is in Verse # 01 Chapter # 01 ,Name of – Allah .

The last placement of the word اِلٰهِ is in Verse # 03, Chapter # 114 .The God of all mankind.


The first placement of the word رَبِّ is in Verse # 01 Chapter # 01 in which Allah Subhan O Talah is portraying the fact the I am the One who should be praised

The last placement of the word بِرَبِّ is in Verse # 01, Chapter # 114 where Rasool Allah (SAW) is seeking refuge in the Lord of humankind”


The first placement of the word الْعٰلَمِيْنَ is in Verse # 01 Chapter # 01 where He is declaring that I am the Ruler of the entire universe .

The last placement of the word عِلْمَ is in the Verse # 05, Chapter # 102, where Allah Subhan O Talah admonishing that now on the day of judgment when you will be certain that I am the رَبِّ الْعٰلَمِيْنَ. Nonbelievers will witness the grandeur of Allah Subhan O Talah.With a thought that Indeed, if we know that Allah Subhan O Talah’s existence is certain then we would have acted differently.


Conclusion:

All glory, praise, and prestige are for Allah Subhan O Talah. And it is really interesting to know that He is showering his blessings on Rasool Allah (SAW).In other words, the appreciation of Rasool Allah (SAW) is the appreciation of Allah. And the praise of Allah is the praise of Rasool Allah(SAW).
