Al-Basit

(The Extendernt)

The Englarger, The One who constricts the sustenance by His wisdom and expands and widens it with His Generosity and Mercy.

Allah is Al-Baasit, The One who amplifies all abundance, who makes the way wide open. He gives plentiful to whoever he wills and reaches out a helping hand to all mankind. Allah gives provision and mercy as he wishes.

Mentions From The Quran & Hadith

From the root b-s-t which has the following classical Arabic connotations: to expand, enlarge, extend to grant abundance, to provide amply to spread, widen, to make spacious to extend a hand.

Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned. (Quran 2:245)

“Verily, Allah Almighty stretches out his hand by night to accept the repentance of those who sin by day, and he stretches out his hand by day to accept the repentance of those who sin by night, until the sun rises from the west.”
