99 Attributes of Allah: Al Musawwir ( The Fashioner )

In the series of posts on 99 attributes of Allah, today we take out the attribute Al Musawwir from the three attributes of the Allah come together in the 24th verse of 59th Surah of the Holy Quran "Surah Al Hashr":

هُوَ اللَّهُ الْخَالِقُ الْبَارِئُ الْمُصَوِّرُ

We have already deliberated upon these three attributes, Al Khaliq, Al Bāri' (The Inventor) and al Musawwir (The Fashioner) which are synonymous to one an other. Allah the Almighty has created the universe from nothing, thus He is rightly attributed Himself as the sole Khaliq, the Creator of the universe. However, the two other attributes of Al Bāri' (The Inventor) and Al Musawwir (The Fashioner) augment the qualities of Al Khaliq.

However, today we exclusively discuss the attribute Al Musawwir ( المُصَوِّر ) - The Fashioner

Every creation has a shape, drawn very deliberately and critically. Al Musawwir is thus the one who has given everything a special form and a special manner whereby it is distinguished. Our faces, hands, toes and every part of our body has be designed in such an artistic completeness that no being other than Allah, the Al Musawwir, has the ability to do so. 

The brush strokes of the Nature are unique and awesome, leave us spellbound when we look at beautifully shaped meadows, vast stretches of lush green lands, the mountains with each peak designed entirely from the other. The colours and hues are unimaginably diverse and different. In fact no human or computer can bring out so many colour combinations that exist in the Nature. The Fashioner or the Shaper has given each creation with a unique beauty different from the other.

If one has a flare for underwater photography, one would be amazed to find the fish, each different from the other in colour and shape. The coral reefs under the seas are another creations, shaped and coloured so magnificently that even the best of the painters find them unable even to imitate or copy.

Look at the animals: the lions, the leopards, cheetah, the gazelles, the impalas, the giraffe, the elephants, rhinos, horses and lot others. How beautifully these have been shaped with entirely different attributes. And these shapes never existed before till crafted, fashioned and drawn by none other the Allah Almighty, the best of the Fashioners and Artists - The Al Musawwir, the Shaper of the Beauty !!
