Mujeeb comes from the root jeem-waw-baa, which points to three main meanings. The first meaning is to answer, reply, respond, and accept. The second main meaning is to cut, pierce, or penetrate and the third is to have a dialogue or conference. Al-Mujeeb is the One who answers prayers, responds to needs, and accepts praise. He is the One who penetrates each obstacle in order to respond.
This root appears 43 times in the Quran in five derived forms. Examples of these forms are ujeebu (“I respond”), jaboo (“carved out”),istajaaboo (“respond”) and jawaabaa (“(the) answer”). Al-Mujeeb Himself says: … Indeed, my Lord is near and responsive [Quran, 11:61]and … [We are] the best of responders.[Quran, 37:75]
Shaykh ‘Abd ur-Razzaaq al-Badr comments:
“And indeed as a result of having faith in the name of Allaah ‘Al-Mujeeb,’ the slave’s certainty in Allaah strengthens, and his turning to Him and hoping for what is with Him increases, and the disease of despairing from His Mercy departs from him. And how can the Muslim not trust in his Lord, the Most Generous, while in His Hand, subhaanah, is the kingdom of everything.
So whatever He wills, will be, at the time that He wills, in the way that He wills, with no addition nor omission, no precedence nor delay; and His decree, subhaanah, is carried out in the heavens, and the earth and what is upon it and what is under it, and in the seas and the air, and in all the parts and atoms of the world. To Him belongs the creation and the command, to Him belongs the kingdom and the praise, to Him belongs the dunyaa and the aakhira.” …more.
He, Exalted is He, is close to everybody, this closeness being of two types:
1) The general closeness which means His being close to everyone with respect to His knowledge, awareness, seeing, witnessing, and encompassing.
2) The specific closeness which is specific to His worshipers, those who ask of Him and those who love Him. The reality of this type of closeness cannot be comprehended, all we can see is its resultant effects – His Kindness to His servants, His aiding them and His making them to be firm upon the Straight Path.…more
