Guardian over His creation.

He is Allaah than Whom there is La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be
worshipped but He) the King, the Holy, the One Free from all defects, the
Giver of security, the Watcher over His creatures, the All-Mighty, the
Compeller, the Supreme. Glory be to Allaah! (High is He) above all that they
associate as partners with Him. (Sooratul Hashr 59, Aayah 23)

15- Al-Khaaliq:
The Creator and Maker of everything.
The One Who brought everything into existence after it had previously not
existed. The One Who has always had the attribute of being The Creator
even when there was no creation in existence. This is a fine point that Shaikhul-Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah (rahimahullaah) brought and made clear that
Allaah did not become The Creator when He created - when the creation
came into existence - rather He has always been The Creator. This has always
been His Attribute. So He did not gain this attribute upon the arrival of the
creation, rather He has always had this attribute.

He is Allaah, the Creator, the Inventor of all things, the Bestower of forms. To
Him belong the Best Names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorify
Him. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. (Sooratul Hashr 59, Aayah 24)

17- Al-Baari:
The Originator.
The One Who - by His Power - originated and created and fashioned the
created beings upon their separate forms without any prior example to
follow. And Who created and fashioned the souls in the wombs.

18- Al-Musawwir:
The Bestower of forms.
The One Who forms and fashions His creation however He wills. The One
Who gives form to everything in existence, giving each created thing a
particular form and appearance which distinguishes it from all other created

He is Allaah, the Creator, the Inventor of all things, the Bestower of forms. To

When Hani went with his people in a deputation to the Messenger of Allaah (), he
heard them calling him by his kunyah (surname), AbulHakam.
So the Messenger of Allaah ( )called him and said: Allaah is the judge (al-Hakam), and
to Him judgment belongs. Why are you given the kunyah AbulHakam?
He replied: When my people disagree about a matter, they come to me, and I decide
between them, and both parties are satisfied with my decision.
He said: How good this is! What children have you? He replied: I have Shurayh, Muslim
and Abdullah. He asked; Who is the oldest of them? I replied: Shurayh. He said: Then you
are AbuShurayh.
Abu Dawud said: This is Shuraib who broke the chain, and who entered Tustar.
