Al-Muhaymin— The Guardian, The Witness, The Overseer. He is the One who ensures the well-being of creation. Al-Muhaymin observes, guards, and protects His creation!
The Overseer, Protector and Guardian
Muhaymin comes from the root haa-meem-noon , which points to three main meanings. The first main meaning is to oversee, protect, and guard, and the second is to witness. The third main meaning is to determine the truth.
AI-Muhaymin is the One who observes His creation with regards to their actions. It is also The One Who offers peace and security and The Trustworthy One Who proclaims the Truth. He is the One who always watches us and looks after us.
هُوَ اللَّهُ الَّذِي لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْمَلِكُ الْقُدُّوسُ السَّلَامُ الْمُؤْمِنُ الْمُهَيْمِنُ الْعَزِيزُ الْجَبَّارُ الْمُتَكَبِّرُ ۚ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ – 59:23
He is Allah, other than whom there is no deity, the Sovereign, the Pure, the Perfection, the Bestower of Faith, the Overseer, the Exalted in Might, the Compeller, the Superior. Exalted is Allah above whatever they associate with Him.
We should always be mindful that Allah [swt] is watching us and at the same time know that He knows what is good and bad for us, so be content with whatever He decrees. When you want help or support, call upon Al Muhaymin, and He will give it to you.
Al-Ghazali counsels: “Every servant who watches over his heart until he supervises its depths and its secrets, and also takes possession of reforming his inner states and attributes, and undertakes to protect it continuously according to the requirements of reform, will then be ‘guardian’ in relation to his heart.”
