As-Salām (The Source of Peace)


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allah (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“Indeed, ‘As -Salām’ is one of the names of Allah Almighty which Allah has put on earth. So, spread the greeting of peace among  yourselves.”

[Narrated by Al-Bukhāri in Al-Adab Al-Mufrad; Sahīh (authentic)]

The believer should continue to ask Allah Almighty for safety in this world and in the Hereafter. Safety in worldly life is of two types: outward and in ward.

Outward safety is good health and being free from ills and all unpleasant conditions.

Inward safety is religious soundness and freedom from disbelief, religious innovations, and disobedience to Allah. 

That thing which the believer seeks is the firmest bond of faith. If he attains it, he will win himself a sound heart and will enter the abode of peace, i.e. Paradise.

Everyone seeks peace, and Allah is the Source of Peace, Blessed and Exalted.

Ibn Al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy upon him) said: “Many have memorized this name but are unaware of such secrets and meanings contained therein.”

Allah Almighty says:

{He is Allah, there is no god except Him, the King, the Most Holy, the Source of Peace, the Giver of Belief (Security), the All - Controller...}

[Surat al - Hashr: 23]

Our Lord, the Source of Peace, is the One free from any deficiency or defect, for He is perfect in His essence, attributes, and actions.

In Arabic, “salāmah” means innocence or well-being.

Allah Almighty is the Source of Peace and the One free from.

any defect and He is exalted above any similarity to His creation.

In fact, our Lord is worthier of this name than anyone else.
