The All-Hearing - As-Samīʿ
As-Samīʿ, The All-Hearing
Ibn Al-Qayyim, may God have mercy on him, says that God Almighty is all-Hearing such that He hears all of the prayers to Him in all languages, and listening to one person does not distract Him from listening to another. When you talk to God Almighty, it is a one-on-one even if you are in a crowded room full of people. You are the focus of His attention. Do not ever belittle yourself to think that God Almighty would not listen to you. Imam Al-Ghazali, may God have mercy on him, also said beautifully that God Almighty “hears secrets as well as whispers, and even what is subtler and more concealed than these.” God Almighty even hears the thoughts that go through your mind that you have not even articulated.
