A Beautiful Name of Allâh: The Good Doer (Al_Muhsin):


1. The Mentioning of the nameAl_Muhsin in the prophet’s sunnah (sahîh sunnah):
This name was mentioned in the prophetic sunnah indicating perfection of description for the sake of popularity. At_Tabaraniy mentioned from Anas hadîth (may Allâh be pleased with him) that the messenger of Allâh (PBUH) said:

“If you judge, be fair, if you kill, be merciful, for Allâh the Almighty is good doer and loves good doings”

[the little collection with good reference]

2- Islam ordered Ihsân absolutely:
Torture is forbidden. If you see a scorpion, you must kill it in one blow. But being artistic in torturing it is against the method of Allâh the Almighty.

It was mentioned by Shaddad Bin Aws, he said: “ two things I memorize from the messenger of Allâh (PBUH): he said:

“ Allâh the Almighty ordered ihsân on everything; if you kill, be merciful with the killing, if you slaughter, slaughter well, and sharpen your blade so that the slaughtered is put to rest”
[Sahih Muslim]

A prophetic picture for our master Ibrâhîm in being good to guests:
Honorable brothers, the issue of ihsân is for your deed to be perfect. If you invite someone to a banquet, the noble qur’an taught us the behaviors of invitation, Allâh the Almighty said:
“then he turned to his household, and brought out..”

[Sûrat Adh_Dhâriyât (The Winds that Scatter], aya 26]

Our master Ibrâhîm went secretly, he did not ask the for the guest’s permission to bring the food, because the guest is shy. If you offer to bring him the food, he will refuse, he will say: “I am not hungry.”

Therefore, from the perfection of hospitality is not to ask for the guest’s permission to bring the food.

“then he turned to his household, and brought out …”
[Sûrat Adh_Dhâriyât (The Winds that Scatter], aya 26]

That is he turned secretly.
“..and he hastened to entertain them with a roasted calf” [sûrat Hûd (prophet Hûd), aya 69]
Bringing the food was not delayed, and that is from the perfection of inviting, and he brought rich food:

“..and he hastened to entertain them with a roasted calf” [sûrat Hûd (prophet Hûd), aya 69]
That means delicious
Now: “And he placed it before them..” [Sûrat Adh_Dhâriyât (The Winds that Scatter], aya 27]

Sometimes the dish is far from the guests, they are shy to stretch themselves to get it, you should put the food close to them, put it in front of them. Sometimes people may put the food or the fruits in front of the guests and do not ask them to eat.; interesting or dangerous talk, the food and fruits are in front of them and the host does not say: “help yourselves”, and the guests are shy to stretch their arms before being invited.

“then he turned to his household, and brought out …”
[Sûrat Adh_Dhâriyât (The Winds that Scatter], aya 26]

“..And he hastened to entertain them with a roasted calf”
[sûrat Hûd (prophet Hûd), aya 69]

“And he placed it before them..”
[Sûrat Adh_Dhâriyât (The Winds that Scatter], aya 26]
“…saying: “Will you not eat?”

[Sûrat Adh_Dhâriyât (The Winds that Scatter], aya 26]

The perfection of Ihsân in inviting includes: not to ask the guest for permission to bring the food, but to bring the food quickly, to make delicious food and put it in front of the guests and invite them to eat.

Who made everything He has created good:
The word ‘ihsân’ is very wide, Allâh the Almighy said:

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

The Good Doing in creating man:
He made eyes for you without which you cannot realize the third dimension, with one eye we can see two surface dimensions, but with the second eye we can see the third dimension, we can see the depth.

He made you ears, with one ear, we can hear the sound, but with the two ears we can realize the direction of sound.

He created a socket for the eye so that it is in a very safe place, He made the brain in a bony box in the skull, and made the bone marrow in the spinal cord, and made the most dangerous factory, the factory of the red cells in the bone marrow, He made the uterus in the pelvis bone..

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

In the hair, for each hair, He made a vein, an artery, a nerve, a muscle, a color gland, and a fat gland. He did not make sensory nerves in the hair in order to enable you to groom your hair without going to hospital. You would need to go to hospital and have full anesthesia for a haircut if the hair had sensory nerves.

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

He made the cornea of the eye transparent. Therefore, it must be nurtured in a unique way, not through the vessels, but through the solvents. In order to make sight absolutely transparent, He made an antifreeze substance in the eye. This prevents losing eyesight in places with temperatures below zero degree centigrade.

The greatest professional digital camera has ten thousand light receptives in one millimeter, but in the eye’s retina, there are hundred million receptives.

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

Allâh is Muhsin (Good Doer), in order to distinguish between 8 million colors. If you have 800 thousand degrees for one color, the healthy eye will distinguish the difference between two degrees of the color:

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

The heart pumps eight cubic meters of blood daily. Man may need one cubic meter of liquid fuel for the whole winter, but the heart pumps eight cubic meters of blood daily without boredom or fatigue.

The talk about the body is endless, the stomach, the intestines, the kidneys, the filtering system, the smooth and striped muscles; conscious and subconscious, the vessels, the arteries being deep and the veins superficial, if things were the other way round and man was injured, he would lose all his blood.

A surgeon told me that once an artery was cut during an operation, he swore to me that the blood reached the ceiling of the room from the pressure, for the vessels are out but the arteries are deep. If you think deeply in the creation of man, you will see wonders, even in the five senses.

“Verily, We have created all things with Qadar (Divine Preordainments of all things before their creation as written in the Book of Decrees _Al_Lauh al_Mahfûth)”
[Sûrta Al¬_Qamar (The Moon), aya 49 ]

If you saw the bacteria in the glass of water, you wouldn’t drink it. He made a threshold for sight that we do not see more than we are supposed to see, nor hear more than what we are supposed to hear.

“Verily, We have created all things with Qadar (Divine Preordainments of all things before their creation as written in the Book of Decrees _Al_Lauh al_Mahfûth)”
[Sûrta Al¬_Qamar (The Moon), aya 49]

“Verily, We created man in the best stature (mould)”
[Sûrat At_Tîn (The Fig) aya, 4]

The Goodness in creating the Fruits:
Look at the apple; suitable size, suitable stature, suitable smell, suitable shape and suitable ingredients. It is rich in iron, sugar, minerals, calcium, and magnesium.

“Who made everything He has created good” [Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

3. The Meaning of ‘Al_Muhsin’:
Therefore, ‘Al_Muhsin’ is something very accurate, ‘Al_Muhsin’ (The Good Doer) is an agentive derived from the verb ‘Ahsana’ (did good), ‘yuhsinu’ (does good), ‘ihsânan’ (good deed). So He is a Good Doer, goodness is against ugliness, the goodness of something is its decoration. Imagine how man looks without skin, very unbearable. The same thing as a skeleton house, but the furniture, the paint, the windows and the floor:

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

Pictures of Allâh’s Ihsan in his creatures:
Imagine man without hair, but he has hair and skin, solid skin, and systematic/consistent muscles. Imagine man without a balance system. We would need a base with the size of seventy centimeters in order to stand, but we have small, nice foot to keep our balance. The secret of balance is in the balance systems. There are three canals in the ear with liquid and hairs, with cilia. With any inclination, the liquid stays at one level and touches the cilia from a certain side. This makes you realize that there is something wrong with the equilibrium, so you correct the situation. Had it not been for the balance system, man would never be able to stand.

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

Look at your food, if the crops of wheat, maize, lentils, and humous grew alternately like the fruits, it would be unbearable, you hold a tuft and say: “I wonder if it is ripe so I can collect it! The crops grow simultaneously.

If the fruits grew at one time, it would be unbearable! The melon field gives you for ninety days through the summer, all fruits and vegetables grow alternately. If all the fruits start to grow at a certain time, it would be difficult, but you start with one type of fruit, another type a month later, the last thing comes the grapes in Autumn, figs come before it, pears come before it, peaches come before it, cherries come before it. Fruits are divided in summer in a comfortable way, all through the summer, every two or three weeks, a kind of fruit grows, that is from ‘Al_Ihsân’.
The cow gives you milk that exceeds the price of food. If it gave you milk with less price than the food, no one would own a cow. If the chicken gave one egg a month, it would be costly and uneconomic, every day it lays one egg, the food of the chicken does not equal its product from eggs, and that is from ‘Al_Ihsân’.

If that kind of thought started in the minds of the creation of Allâh the Almighty’s, they would know Allâh, therefore the highest level of worship is the deep thinking:

“Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding (190), Those who remember Allâh (always, and in prayers) standing and lying down on their sides, and think deeply about the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying): “Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted areYou above all that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire. (191)” [Sûrat Al¬_’Imrân (The Family of ‘Imrân) aya 190, 191]

The quality of ihsân is manifested in the acquired immune system:

You have an immune system that consists of an army with all means. It has five troupes: exploration troupe, a troupe whose main mission is only exploratory, the germ enters the body so the white cells from the exploration troupe head towards it, take the code of the germ, without fighting it, to the solution manufacturing centre, to the workshops of defense in the lymphatic nodes and give them the combination of the germ and its chemical features, then they in turn make the anti solution that fights this germ. Those factories or the lymphatic nodes constitute weapon factories and the exploration troupe constitutes the intelligence system in the body and there is also the third troupe, the fighters troupe, this troupe carries the anti solution and heads towards the germ and fights it, the germ may or may not win. The fourth troupe, the services troupe. This troupe cleans the battle field, buries the bodies, and sometimes we may find a white cluster in our skin, that is caused by a battle between the germs and the red cells, whose design is that?

There is a fifth troupe, the fighters troupe that discovers the cancer cells early and gallops it. There are million cancer cells in man, each cell has a suppressor that prevents it from being active. There are some things that disunite that suppressor; psychological difficulties, petroleum materials, plastic materials and nuclear radiation, these are reasons for cancer, the immune system is fascinating.

The brain is placed in a bony box, there is a fluid between the brain and the box. The aim of the fluid is to absorb shocks. If a child fell on his head, the great vibration would distribute the fluid to the whole area of the brain, and the child would stay intact.

The deep thinking in the creation of the heavens and the earth makes you pause in front of the greatness and ihsân of Allâh the Almighty. Therefore Allâh the Almighty describes Himself through His prophet as being good as a noun, but for the action:

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]
As a meaning
“Verily, We created man in the best stature (mould)”
[Sûrat At_Tîn (The Fig) aya, 4]

In the best state.
Allâh’s goodness is manifested in the bones of man:
There is a amazing thing in the creation of man, for instance: the bony cell grows, if man reaches the perfect level, growth stops.

From the beautiful names of Allâh (Al_Qâbid), the holding and (Al_Bâset), the stretcher/expander; growth stops and the nerve cell sleeps, after seventy years of sleep, if a fracture occurs, it wakes up in order to help fix the bone. Whose make is this? Whose ability is it?
Bones are very tough, what do you eat? You eat milk, then it is formed into bones. The head of the thigh tolerates the pressure of about 250 kilos, each head of a thigh tolerates a quarter of a ton, the two heads half a ton, where did this strong bone get its toughness?

The gum of teeth is the second toughest element in the universe, after the diamonds, where did that come from?

Honorable brothers, that is from the perfection of Allâh the Almighty.
“Verily, We created man in the best stature (mould)”
[Sûrat At_Tîn (The Fig) aya, 4]

4. You should be good doer:
Now, you man, in order to behave in a divine way derived from the perfection of Allâh the Almighyt, you must be good, therefore Allâh the Almighty said:

“And whoever submits his face (himself) to Allâh, while he is a Muhsin (good –doer i.e. performs good deeds totally for Allâh’s sake without any show off or to gain praise or fame and does them in accordance with Sunnah of Allâh’s Messenger Muhammad PBUH), then he has grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold [La ilâha illallâh (none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh.”
[Sûrat Luqmân (Luqmân), aya 22]

As Allâh the Almighty is good to you, He gave you the bliss of existence and that of support, the bliss of guidance and right path as well. You must be good doer, the word Good (Muhsin) is the closest quality to the believer; good in his speech; no dirty talk, no mockery, no sarcasm, no bad things, no dirty jokes that cause embarrassment, but good words, good behavior, good visits, good driving and good organization of work instead.

5. Good doing is a comprehensive and collective quality:
Good doing is the quality of the one and only, every believer should derive this quality from Allâh the Almighty, should be good in raising children, in relations, appointments, invitations, good occasions, and sad occasions. Ihsân is a collective preventive quality, the same way you discover the goodness of Allâh through His creation, you must be good to creatures. The husband should be good to his wife.

“.. and live with them honorably”
[Sûrat An_Nisâ’ (The Women), aya 19]

Good in raising his children.
“ Teach and do not scold, for the teacher is better than the scolder”
[the little collection with weak reference from Abu Hurairah]

Good in his work, his work is well done.
“Allâh likes when the slave does something to do it well”
[the small collection from Aysha]

It is incredible that there is such comprehensive quality, there is goodness in talk, in punishment: avoid the face. If you want to discipline your son, avoid the face because it is human’s dignity. The prophet (PBUH) warned us against slapping the face, there is moderate hitting, you can hit the shoulder, the aim is not to cause severe pain, but to attract the attention.

Once the prophet (PBUH) sent a boy on an errand, and he was so late. The prophet (PBUH) got so mad, he is human after all, he had siwak, he said to the boy:

“were it not for qasas, I would have hurt you with this siwak”
[the little collection with weak reference from Um Salamah]

Good in raising his children, if you were the manager of a firm, be good in treating the employees.
The word ‘Muhsin’ is wide in an unimaginable way, celebration has goodness; sometimes it takes four hours, which is harmful as time is very precious, but a celebration that takes an hour and a half has a lot of goodness. There may be condolence without goodness. In some countries condolences take about twenty speechless hours, no qur’an, only talk, ordinary talk.

The issue of ihsân includes joy and grief, raising children, even in clothes there is ihsân; clean clothes with matching colors, simple without complications, even in your working place there is order, cleanliness and tidiness of the shop; all those have Ihsan.

In psychology, we learnt that there are features and qualities, which are deep, for instance: punctuality appears in appointments, in appearance, and in projects.
Now there are computer programs, you can start construction without losing a moment, the subject is well studied, everything needs dryness and straightness. It gives you what to do in order not to lose one single moment. The more man develops, the more he saves time and manages it.
There is goodness in time management, sometimes cancelling the routine is good, reducing burdens on someone is good, and that includes the systems made by the state. Sometimes it gathers all the people’s need in one building, that is goodness.

The word ihsân is incredibly wide, you can be good in your speech, your behavior, in raising your children, in treating your wife, in your work, in your happy occasions, in your sad occasions,.. in everything.

Allâh the Almighty ordered ihsân on everything. Believers are good doers, and the believer derives this high quality from Allâh the Almighty.

“And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allâh, so call on Him by them,..”
[Sûrat Al_A’râf (The Heights or the Wall with Elevations), aya 180]
That means get closer to Allâh the Almighty with perfection derived from the perfections of Allâh the Almighty.
1. Allâh the Almighty demanded ihsân (good doing) on everything:
Honorable brothers, we are still discussing Allâh’s name (Al_Muhsin), it was mentioned in Sahîh

Muslim from Shaddâd Bin Aous that the prophet (PBUH) said:
“ Allâh the Almighty demanded ihsân on everything; if you kill, be merciful with the killing, if you slaughter, slaughter well, and sharpen your blade so that the slaughtered is put to rest”

Even if you kill a snake or a scorpion.
“Allâh the Almighty demanded ihsân on everything”

2. Al_Husna is Paradise, because it has absolute perfection:
Man was created for paradise.

“As for him who gives (in charity) and keeps his duty to Allâh and fears Him (4), and believes in Al_Husna,(5), We will make smooth for him the path of ease (goodness).(6)”
[Sûrat Al_Lail (The Night) aya 4-6]

Who believes that he is created for paradise, and this world is a house of preparation, of assignment. Allâh the Almighty named paradise

“Al_Husna”
because it has the absolute perfection.
“There they will have all that they desire.”
[Sûrat Qaf, aya 35]

As for the world, its nature is hardship.
“O man! Verily, you are returning towards your Lord with your deeds and actions (good or bad), a sure returning, and you will meet (the results of your deeds which you did)”
[Sûrat Al_Inshiqæq (The Splitting Asunder), aya 6]

The system of the world is something and that of the afterlife is another. The system of the world is that it is a house of assignments, as for that of the afterlife, it is a house of honoring, the system of the world is that it is a house of deeds, that of the afterlife, is a house of reward, Al_Husna is built on Allâh the Almighty’s saying:

“There they will have all that they desire”
[Sûrat Qaf, aya 35]

“..and we have more (for them, i.e. a glance at the All-Mighty, All Majestic)”
[Sûrat Qaf, aya 35]

Anything you ask for in paradise is granted to you.
“There they will have all that they desire__ and we have more (for them, i.e. a glance at the All-Mighty, All Majestic)”
[Sûrat Qaf, aya 35]

Because man paid the price of paradise in the world, Allâh the Almighty created the desires in him, gave him freedom of choice, subjected all that in the heavens and the earth to him. In the world, he has a grasp from the earth and blow from the spirit of Allâh the Almighty, therefore when you succeed in the world, you deserve paradise.

“For those who have done good is the best (reward, i.e. Paradise) and even more (i.e. having the honor of glancing at the Countenance of Allâh the Almighty”
[Sûrat Yûnus (Jonah), aya 26]

Whoever believes that he is created for paradise avoids disobeying Allâh and builds his life on giving.

Those who belie Al_Husna believe in the world only:
If you ask about a considerable difference between the believer and the non believer, the answer will be that the believer’s life is built on giving, his ultimate happiness lies in giving not taking, and the non-believer’s happiness lies in taking. Therefore the prophets gave and never took, and the powerful ones took and never gave:

“For those who have done good is the best (reward, i.e. Paradise) and even more (i.e. having the honor of glancing at the Countenance of Allâh the Almighty”
[Sûrat Yûnus (Jonah), aya 26]

“But he who is greedy miser and thinks himself self-sufficient, and belies Al_Husna”
[Sûrat Al_Lail (The Night) aya 8]

Those who belie that they are created for paradise, and think that they are created for the world, think themselves self sufficient, do not need to obey Allâh the Almighty, build their lives on just taking. You can simply discover whether you are from the people of the world or from those of the afterlife; if you are happy to take, and think that you are very clever when you take what does not belong to you, then you are from the worldly people, and people call you clever, but if you are happy with giving, then you are from the people of the afterlife.

Therefore, Al_Husna is paradise, the price of paradise:
“For those who have done good is the best (reward, i.e. Paradise)”
[Sûrat Yûnus (Jonah), aya 26]

3. A believer should have the quality of Ihsân:
Since Allâh is Muhsin, you as a believer should have this perfection, that means that your work includes ihsan, if you give, give without grudge, if you punish, punish without grudge, if you work, work well, if you visit, be modest, do not underestimate the world of any person in his/her eyes, transfer him/her to the afterlife.

4. Ihsan includes everything:
The matter of ihsan is so wide, you can be good while you are punishing, be good while you are preventing, be good while you are giving, be good while you are fighting:

“Allâh the Almighty demanded ihsan on everything”.
Even if you kill a harmful animal Allâh has ordered you to kill, you should not torture it, that is the way of believers.

Can believers tolerate to take the fish at its highest mobility, remove its inside and clean it before it stops moving completely.

Allâh the Almighty said:
“Then, when they are down on their sides (after slaughter)”
[Sûrat Al_Haj (The Pilgrimage), aya 36]

You can clean it after its soul is out completely, and it settles down and stops moving.
“Allâh the Almighty demanded ihsan on everything”

5. And who can be better in religion than one who submits his face (himself) to Allâh and he is a Muhsin:

Honorable brothers, now to the noble verse:
“..and who can be better in religion than one who submits his face (himself)to Allâh (i.e. follows Allâh’s religion of Islamic Monotheism); and he is a Muhsin (a good-doer)”
[Sûrat An_Nisâ’ (The Women), aya 125]

The meaning is very accurate, you cannot approach Allâh unless you are Muhsin. Someone might say: “I do not feel submission in prayer”, if you are muhsin, you will submit in prayer.

“And truly it is extremely heavy and hard except for Al_Khâshi’ûn [i.e. the true believers in Allâh__ those who obey Allâh with full submission, fear much from His Punishment, and believe in His Promise (Paradise) and in His Warnings (Hell)”
[Sûrat Al_ Baqarah (The Cow), aya 45]

Those who follow Allâ’s orders, submit to Him in prayer will feel that connection, that connection has a price:

“..and who can be better in religion than one who submits his face (himself)to Allâh (i.e. follows Allâh’s religion of Islamic Monotheism); and he is a Muhsin (a good-doer)”
[Sûrat An_Nisâ’ (The Women), aya 125]

Full submission is easy to believers, procrastination is easy to them as well, because they are good in all their deeds.
From Omar Bin Al_Khattab, may Allâh be pleased with him, the prophet(PBUH) said:

6. Ihsan means that you worship Allâh as if you can see Him:

“Ihsan means that you worship Allâh as if you can see Him”
[Muslim from Abu Hurarirah]

Note yourself if a high person visits you, a very respected person who is knowledgeable, educated, highly cultured, powerful, top in everything, and ethical, is it reasonable that you sit with that person in untidy clothes crossing your legs? You cannot, is it possible that you would sit in his presence playing with the beads? Is it possible that you would speak improperly in his presence? You cannot.

You are before a high class person, you watch your tongue, the way you sit down, your clothes, your movements. If a person who enters a house and you meet him, you will notice that he keeps his eyes in one direction, because it is not polite to wander with your eyes.

“The sight (of Prophet Muhammad PBUH) turned not aside (right and left), nor it transgressed beyond the limit (ordained for it)”
[Sûrat An_Najm (The Star), aya 17]

Therefore, Ihsan is to worship Allâh as if you can see Him.
And I tell you that the best state of believers is to feel that Allâh is with you, therefore, from Abdullah Bin Mas’oud, he said, the prophet (PBUH) said:

“Be bashful from Allâh the right bashfulness, he said: we said: messenger of Allâh, we are bashful Alhamdulillah, he said: not that, but the right bashfulness from Allâh is to keep the head and what it comprehends, the belly and what it contains, and remember death and sorrow, and whosoever wants the afterlife will leave the adornment of life, whosoever does this is bashful from Allâh the right way” [At_Tirmithi]

Ihsân is to worship Allâh as if you can see Him, if you cannot see Him, He sees you. That is the case of surveillance. There are verses in quran that are enough:

“Surely, Allâh is Ever an All_Watcher over you”
[Sûrat An_Nisâ’ (The Women), aya 1]

You do this with a person like you, how about the Lord of the Worlds?!!

If you hear that you are being watched by another man, you will watch your steps, if you walk on the sidewalk of an embassy, you will move to the other side because you are being watched, that is the way of the watched one. When you feel that Allâh is with you, watching you, that is a very high level of faith, a level that calls for discipline, and when you feel that you are under the umbrella of Allâh’s knowledge and ability, you cannot disobey Him, but you will be good (Muhsin) then.
Let me give this example: when a person from the public or the second class stops at the red light, the traffic warden is standing, another one sitting on a motorcycle, the first one detects him, if he dissents, the second one will follow him, and the third one so that the policeman will not connive with him, knowing that he is second degree, is it possible that he will dissent? No way. It is impossible to dissent with a man who put the law of traffic because you are aware that he is watching you through the three wardens, and you are under his power, he can withdraw your license, seize the car. You are with a man like you, and you cannot disobey him. But according to reality, there is someone who would cross the red light at three in the morning because he is aware that the traffic wardens cannot reach him, and he may dissent at daylight if he is not under the sight of the traffic wardens. If his knowledge and power reaches you, you cannot disobey him, but if you assume that his knowledge and power do not reach you, you can disobey him, so how is the case with the creator of the heavens and the earth? Nothing is unknown to Him.

“Allâh knows the fraud of the eyes”
[Sûrat Ghâfir (The Forgiver or The Believer), aya 19]

To illustrate this verse: a doctor examines a sick woman, the law permits him to look at the place of illness, if he peeks somewhere else she does not complain from, there is no party on earth that can detect this treason except Allâh, He is:

“Allâh knows the fraud of the eyes”
[Sûrat Ghâfir (The Forgiver or The Believer), aya 19]

“..and that the chests conceal”
[Sûrat Ghâfir (The Forgiver or The Believer), aya 19]

He is aware of you, He hears you as you speak, sees you as you move, knows what you are up to. Nothing is beyond His reach. That is the state of Ihsan, when you feel that Allâh is with you, but in a kind way, All Hearing, All Seeing, All Knowledgeable; All Hearing as you speak, All Seeibg as you move, All Knowledgeable as you intend to do something. Ihsan is to worship Allâh as if you can see Him, if you do not see Him, he can see you, He is good (Muhsin) in everything, the evidence:

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

Pictures of Allâh’s goodness (ihsan) in His creatures:
How does that flapper inside the egg get out? a sharp protrusion grows is its beak that the flapper breaks the egg with. When it is out, the protrusion shrinks and disappears, is there a better ihsan than this?

In the infant’s spleen, there is enough iron for two years because milk does not contain iron:
“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

The cornea of the eye is transparent, it has a special nutritional system, it does not get nutrition through the small hairs, but through the solutions.

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

Water stretches at 4 Degrees Centigrade, has it not stretched, this lesson would not be, this town would not exist, and there would not be a human being on the face of the earth.

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

The hawk sees eight folds more than man does, it sees its prey in the water while it is high in the sky, man sees but the hawk will jeopardize and fall from up high in order to eat. If its sight wasn’t sharp enough to see its food on the surface of the earth from the high sky, its creation wouldn’t be good.

The talk about the ayat that certifies that Allah is ‘Muhsin’ is endless:
In the ear, that auricle, those surfaces and cavities in order to cover all directions. Any sound falls vertically on a surface of the auricle, if the hole of the ear was a little wider, the baby would rupture his/her eardrum, but the hole is narrower than the smallest finger.

Sometimes someone might hold his child, the tendons are well studied in a way that holds the child’s body even if he is held fiercely. Sometimes you might fill your purse with things and hold it, then it breaks, you say: ‘unprofessional make’, but look how man is made and how his/her weight suits the consistency of the tendons in the arm.

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

7. Allâh enjoins Al_Adl and Al_Ihsan:
“Verily, Allâh enjoins Al_ ‘Adl (i.e. justice and worshipping none but Allâh Alone _Islamic Monotheism) and Al_Ihsân [i.e. to be patient in performing your duties to Allâh, totally for Allâh’s sake and in accordance with Sunnah (legal ways) of the Prophet PBUH in a perfect manner]”
[Sûrat An_Nahl (The Bees), aya 90]

We are ordered with Adl, and ordered with Adl with Ihsan. Sometimes the problem is solved with ihsan not adl (justice). You owe that person nothing, but he needs your help. When you understand that verse, thousands of problems can be solved. The matter that is not solved with justice makes you want to send him away, destroy him, expose him, but with ihsân you should help him against satan. The right guidance is to help your brother against satan, not the opposite, with ihsan.

Sometimes you may have a bad neighbor whom you can cut his tongue with ihsan, not with scissors; ihsan shuts mouths. And I advise anyone who has a bad neighbor to bring a present for him, then things will get to order. Who will cut his tongue? Who is good to him in order to shut him down? With ihsân the free is enslaved.
Ihsan involves everything in man’s life.

Once a judge ordered to imprison a man. The attorney asked the release of that man, the judge did not respond, the attorney filed second time, third, fourth and fifth time and the judge did not respond. The defendants fired the attorney and assigned another one. Then the judge seemed convinced to release the man; if he had released him, the first attorney would fall and the second one would be famous, so he said: ‘get me the former attorney in order to file for the release. That is the absolute ihsan (goodness).

Ihsan is to think. A smile in the wrong time might be abusive, sitting in an arrogant way, or asking personal questions as: ‘what has your husband brought you at the feast?’ they love each other, but he is poor. The question shook her and hurt her, and she also was hurt because her husband did not bring her anything, a very embarrassing question.

Wherever you go, you should motivate people to love Allâh the Almighty, not to make them hate their lives.

Once I visited a very small house, the guest room was so small that there was no place to sit, the man was embarrassed, I said: on the contrary, the master of all creatures lived in a very small room that was not large enough for him to pray while his wife was asleep, and he is the top of mankind.’, then the man was soothed.

If you visit your sister, you should empower her relationship with her husband by complementing him, his behavior, not his income, do not ask about his salary and criticize it, that is not ihsan. Ihsan is to watch yourself with the idea, the look, the word, the smile: which might sometimes be abusive.

“Allâh the Almighty demanded ihsân on everything”
“For those who have done good is the best (reward, i.e. Paradise) and even more (i.e. having the honor of glancing at the Countenance of Allâh the Almighty”
[Sûrat Yûnus (Jonah), aya 26]

“He has created the heavens and the earth with truth, and He shaped you and made good your shapes. And to Him is the final Return”
[Surat At_Taghâbun (Mutual Loss and Gain), aya 3]

The prophet (PBUH) taught us that if we stand in front of the mirror and see the soundness of our creation, we should say:

“Allâhumma ahsanta khalqi fa’ahsin khuluwi”
“Oh Allâh, As You have made me good, make my behavior good”
[Ahmad from Ibn Mas’ood]

There are many deformities, ugliness, a problem, amputated organ, etc.
“Oh Allâh, You have made me good, so make my behavior good”
8. So Blessed is Allâh, the Best of creators:

Allâh the Almighty said:
“ So Blessed is Allâh, the Best of creators.”
[Sûrat Al_Mu’minûn (The Believers), aya 14]

Blood wash needs about six hours with industrial equipment, three times a week, every time a shot is given to the patient in a specific place, but Allâh the Almighty made us a kidney with the size of an egg, it works without a sound, without fatigue, without hardship, without pay, and it refines perfectly well.

I heard from one doctor that the kidney has ten folds your need, and the two kidneys twenty folds, that is a reservoir, therefore man can do without one of his kidneys.

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

This verse goes with man, his creation, his needs, his food, and his drink.
“So let man see from what he is created! he is created from a water gushing forth”
[Surat At-Tariq, aya 5,6]

The marital encounter needs one sperm, and sometimes the man produces between 300 and 500 million sperms.
“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

“ So Blessed is Allâh, the Best of creators.”
[Sûrat Al_Mu’minûn (The Believers), aya 14]

How many creators? Only one creator, but the manufacturer is called a creator metaphorically.
Compare between the artificial kidney wash and the normal one, between the camera which has ten thousand light receptives and your eye which has a hundred million light receptives in a millimeter. The retina has 130 million rods and cones in a square millimeter for the colors; therefore you can distinguish 8 million colors.

“Who made everything He has created good”
[Sûrat As_Sajdah(The Prostration), aya, 7]

“He said: “I seek refuge in Allâh (or Allâh forbid)! Truly, he (your husband) is my master! He made my living in a great comfort! (So I will never betray him).”
[Sûrat Yûsuf (Prophet Joseph), aya 23]

He made you from a father, and that is a bliss, you have a known father, an honest dignified mother who has children, your home is stable, and those are gifts from Allâh the Almighty.
9. And do as good as Allâh has been good to you:
The noble verse:
“But seek, with that (wealth) which Allâh has bestowed on you, the home of the Hereafter, and forget not your portion of lawful enjoyment in this world”
[Sûrat Al_Qasas (The Narration), aya 77]

Anything Allâh the Almighty gave you must be devoted for the sake of the afterlife, how is that? He said:
“ and forget not your portion of lawful enjoyment in this world”
[Sûrat Al_Qasas (The Narration), aya 77]

Do not forget the mission you are created for:
“and do good as Allâh has been good to you”
[Sûrat Al_Qasas (The Narration), aya 77]

That is another thing
“and do good as Allâh has been good to you”
[Sûrat Al_Qasas (The Narration), aya 77]

Allâh the Almighty has been patient with you until you are guided. If you have a wife who does not follow the path of Allâh, be patient with her, do not treat her fiercely; Allâh has been patient with you, so be patient with her, see how Allâh has reminded you, remind others.

“and do good as Allâh has been good to you”
[Sûrat Al_Qasas (The Narration), aya 77]

“and seek not mischief in the land”
[Sûrat Al_Qasas (The Narration), aya 77]
