The All-Hearing


The Hearer, The One who Hears all things that are heard by His Eternal Hearing without an ear, instrument or organ.

Allah is As-Sami. He hears everything and sees everything. He pays attention to every supplication, invocation, listening to all who reach out to him. Whether we speak loudly or in secrecy he hears every word.
