The word Hamdحمد has the following meanings:
Types of Possession
for You is all Praise
for what You give and what You take
for that with which You cure
and that with which You afflict
Praise that is most acceptable to you
most liked by You
most dignified before You
Praise which fills all Your creation
and reaches where You wish [it to reach]
Praise which is not veiled form You
and which does not end
and whose continuity does not cease
Six places of Hamd in the Hereafter
– physical properties (the heart as the earth)
- spiritual properties (the heart as the sky)
Good actions rise through the sky towards God
Whoever desires honor, then to Allah belongs all
honor. To Him ascends the good words, and the
good deeds lift them up . . . (35:10)
