The Barakah and Blessings of
The reason for the above is as follows: in Bismillah there are three names of Allah:
1) Allah2) Rahmaan (Kind)3) Raheem (Most Merciful)
WHEN BISMILLAH WAS REVEALED...BISMILLAH BEFORE WAHEEBISMILLAH BEFORE DOING ANYTHINGREMEMBERING ALLAH THROUGH HIS THREE THOUSAND NAMESBISMILLAH - A MEANS OF HIGH STATUS IN THE HEREAFTER
Sayyidina Jaabir (RA) is reported to have said that when Bismillaahir rahmaanir raheem revealed,the clouds gave way by moving to the East, the winds ceased blowing, the oceans became calm,the creatures prepared themselves to listen, the shaytaan got pelted with fire from the heavens andAllah Ta'ala, swearing an oath by His honour, declared: Anyone who says this name of mine (ie.Bismillaahir rahmaanir raheem) upon anything, I will surely impart barakah in that thing, (DurreManthoor and Ibne Katheer)In Durre Manthoor Sayyidina Ibne Umar (RA) is reported as saying that surely, whenever Jibreel (AS) used tobring wahee to Rasoolullah (Sallallaahu-alayhi-wasallam), he used to first recite Bismillaahir rahmaanir raheem.
which is His personal name indicating that all projects can only beinitiated by the will and wish of Allah.which is His attributive name indicating that only Allahcan keep that project intact and existent (guarding it against destruction).which is also His attributive name indicating thatonly Allah can, through His mercy and grace, enable any person to derivebenefit from that project.
This clearly proves that any project begun with Bismillaahir rahmaanir raheem will be granted barakah andblessings from the beginning till the end.It is for this reason that Rasoolullah (Sallallaahu-alayhi-wasallam) used to recite Bismillaahir rahmaanir raheem before doing any work. And he (sallallaahu-alayhi-wasallam) also advised the Ummah to do thesame. For example, reading it before shutting the door for the night, before putting out the light, before takingmeals, before drinking water, before boarding a conveyance, and when alighting any conveyance.It is mentioned in Tafseer Roohul Bayaan that Allaamah Sayyid Haqqi (RA) said that Allah Ta'ala has threethousand names. He revealed one thousand to the angels, one thousand to the ambiya (AS), three hundredare mentioned in the Toraah, three hundred in the Zaboor, three hundred in the Injeel, and ninety-nine in theHoly Qur'aan. One Name He has kept to Himself; He revealed it to no one. Also, He has condensed all Hisnames into the three names contained in Bismillaahir rahmaanir raheem. They are Allah, Rahmaan andRaheem. Any person saying Bismillaahir rahmaanir raheem; it is as though he has remembered Allah by allHis names.Rasoolullah (Sallaahu-alayhi-wasallam) is reported as saying that any du'a which is begun with is notrejected. Because of saying Bismillaahir rahmaanir raheem the scales of my Ummah will become heavy onthe Day of Qiyaamah. The other people will enquire: "Why is the virtues of the Ummate Muhammadiyyah soheavy?" Their prophets will say:"In the utterances of the Ummate Muhammadiyyah there is such an honourable name of Allah that if it isplaced on the one side of the scale, and the sins of the entire creation is put onto the other side then the sidewith the virtue will be heavier
