Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan explicitly elaborates on the power of Bismillah.
When we say, “Bismillaahir-rahmaanir-rahiim”, we are acknowledging about Allah and His qualities, everything that He does is something that’s unique to Him. It cannot be confused with anyone else. The way Allah shows Mercy, guides, and the way Allah provides, the way Allah plans, the way Allah does anything that He does is unique to Him. It cannot be compared to anything and it is His unique mark. Everything Allah does -whether we understand it or not- has beauty in it. When we say “In the name of Allah”, instead of just mentioning Allah, just calling on Allah but actually invoking the name of Allah and actually by invoking the name, the uniqueness of Allah and the beauty of all of the qualities of Allah.
When we say “Bismillaahir-rahmaanir-rahiim”, we are actually asking Allah’s help. The Ustadh elaborates further on the details behind this statement.
A brief analysis is also done on the two most beloved Names of Allah – Ar Rahman and Ar Raheem.
