Allah

Description: Imam Ali (a.s.) said, Allah means the worshipped one, by Whom people are bewildered, and to Whom they are submissive. Allah is the One veiled from the grasp of sights, and the One hidden from imagination and contemplation.

الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : اللّه‏ُ مَعْناهُ المَعْبُودُ الّذِي يَأْلَهُ فِيْهِ الْخَلْقُ وَيُؤْلَهُ إلَيْهِ ، وَاللّه‏ُ هُوَ المَسْتُورُ عَنْ دَرْكِ الأبْصَارِ ، المَحْجُوبُ عَنِ الأوْهَامِ وَالخَطَرَاتِ.

Reference: [al-Tawhid, p. 89, no. 2]

Description: Imam al-Baqir (a.s.) said, Allah means the One who is worshipped and by Whom people are too bewildered to comprehend His essence and to fathom His identity.

الإمامُ الباقرُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : اللّه‏ُ مَعْنَاهُ المَعْبُودُ الّذِي ألِهَ الخَلْقُ عَنْ دَرْكِ مَاهِيَّتِهِ والإحَاطَةِ بِكَيْفِيَّتِهِ.

Description: Imam al-Kazim (a.s.) said, In the name of Allah, Mighty and Exalted, is the attestation to His Lordship and His Oneness.

الإمامُ الكاظم (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ في مَعنَي اللّه‏ ـ : اِستَولي عَلي ما دَقَّ وجَلَّ.
