Ism-e-Allah Zaat

Ism e Allah Zaat is, in fact, the Divine Essence and is specific for His glorified Divine Self. Well known scholars of Islam state that this name is neither an infinitive noun nor derivative.  Neither one can derive Ism-e-Allah Zaat from any word and vice versa. Unlike other attributive names of Him, one cannot apply Ism-e-Allah Zaat metaphorically on anyone. Thus, this name is perfectly pure of combination or application. Like Himself, His name is also the One, only and:

لَمۡ یَلِدۡ ۬ۙ وَ لَمۡ یُوۡلَدۡ 

Meaning: He neither begat nor was begotten.


Reality of Ism-e-Allah Zaat


There is written in Sultan Bahoo books:

When He desired (to be recognized), He separated Ism-e-Allah Zaat from Himself.  From Ism-e-Allah Zaat, the Mohammadan light manifested. When He beheld His reflection in the mirror of His Divine nature of Oneness (the Mohammadan light), He was fascinated and became fond of Himself, got the title of ‘the Holy Lord of all the lords’ and ‘the beloved’ from His own Divine court. Then He created the souls of all the creatures from the Mohammadan light. (Ain-ul-Faqr) 

Kinds of names; personal and attributive


Name is the medium used to call and recognize somebody or something. There are two kinds of names; personal and attributive. The invocation of an attributive name only includes the remembrance of one particular attribute while the invocation of the personal name includes each of the attributive names as well.

Similarly Allah ( اَللّٰہُ  ) is His personal name while Kareem, Raheem, Ghafoor, Ghafaar and other such Divine names are attributive names. They all are included in His personal name. When a person invokes His personal name, he in fact remembers Him with all His attributes.

Ism-e-Allah Zaat – He is One and only in name and Essence

Everyone has a name which is different from his essence but since He has no partners, therefore, He is One and only in His name and Essence.

Taurah, Gospel, Psalms and Quran are the explanation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat


Listen! All the four holy books, Taurah, Gospel, Psalms and Quran are just the explanation of His Personal Name . What is It? It is exactly the Divine Essence. All Prophets got Prophethood and won over the disbelievers only due to the power of this Name. (Ain-ul-Faqr)


Ism-e-Allah Zaat unfolds because of the perfect spiritual guide


From the aforementioned Hadiths and traditions it is established that in reality Ism-e-Allah Zaat is the greatest name because in every Hadith and tradition personal name of Allah (Allah Hoo, Lillah, LaHoo and Hoo  اَللّٰہُ   للہ  لَہُ   ھُو ) is present in any of its forms.


The status of perfect Fakir


When a seeker practises inscribing Allah’s name on body (mashq murqoom-e-wajudi) through meditation then all his body converts into Divine light and the seeker becomes pure of all his sins just as a newborn is pure of sins.

Here, the Holy Prophet blesses him with his kindness and benevolence and takes him to his sacred Family. The princess of paradise Hazrat Fatima tuz-Zahra and mothers of the true believers Hazrat Ayesha and Hazrat Khadija the great adopt him as their spiritual infant son and feed him with milk of light (Nur). He becomes the spiritual son of the sacred Family. The blessed one with the Divine presence. Further he is titled as the son possessing Divine light. Esoterically he is always present in the Mohammadan Assembly as child possessing light with Divine presence but physically he lives and interacts with the people of this world. This is the status of a perfect Fakir. (Nur-ul-Huda Kalan)




Sultan Bahoo says about the denier of Ism-e-Mohammad:

  • The denier of Ism-e-Mohammad is the second Abu Jahl or Pharaoh. (Aqal-e-Baydar)
  • One who does not believe in Ism-e-Mohammad is surely a hypocrite. Ism-e-Mohammad is the straight path. (Mehak-ul-Faqr Kalan)
