Al-Bari (The Maker, The Producer, The Maker from Nothing)

Al-Bari means the one that creates flawlessly.  This name has the following meanings that are different from the name al-Khaliq:

1- The one who creates in a proper, orderly and beautiful way as if cast from mold,

2- The one who creates the organs of the creatures in harmony with one another,

3- The one who creates all creatures in compliance with the general system and purposes in the universe.

Now, let us try to read these three meanings of the name Bari from the pages of the book of the universe:

1- The one who creates in a proper, orderly and beautiful way as if cast from mold

What do you do to make a drinking glass whose raw material is available?

The first thing to do is to prepare a mold for the glass. You cannot produce a glass if you do not have a mold. Then, if you want to produce 50 glasses with different shapes, you need 50 molds.

That is a master and molds are necessary to produce a simple thing. That thing cannot be produced without a master and mold.

Now, let us see what is necessary to create a fly or a flower:

1- To draw the plan of that flower and fly and to make a program,

2- To collect the atoms and materials that form the flower and the fly from all over this realm,

3- After sieving the collected atoms and materials, to determine with precise criteria and pick the ones that are necessary for the flower and the fly,

4- To cast those materials in mold and produce them in a proper, orderly and beautiful way.

When we spread rose seeds on the ground, the ground needs to be able to do the following in order to "create s rose": to plan and program the rose, to collect the materials necessary for the rose from the realm, to be able to determine the materials necessary with precision scales and to cast them in a mold. A rose emerges after these deeds are done. 

Let us leave the first 3 things aside and think about the mold: Since the ground produces different plants out of thousands of different seeds, it is necessary to accept that the ground has as many molds as the number of the plants in the world. 

Furthermore, the leaves, fruits, flowers and shapes of each plant are different; therefore, it is necessary to accept that the ground has as many molds as the number of leaves, fruits and flowers along with plants. To accept it is such a thought that it contains as many impossibilities and superstitions as the number of the plants, flowers and fruits in the world.

However, when these artistic plants and wise works are attributed to Allah’s name Bari, those atoms are sent into the spiritual molds of Allah's knowledge and predestination with the direction of His power. And they come out in a proper and orderly way.

Then, when we look at an apple, a butterfly, a flower, a human being, the organs of a human being, in short, every creature, we need to glorify Allah with His name 'Bari' upon seeing the proper and orderly creation as if cast from mold.

That is, everything that is created in a proper and orderly way has experienced the manifestation of Allah’s name Bari and each one is a letter from Allah’s name Bari.

2- The one who creates the organs of the creatures in harmony with one another

The creation of the organs in harmony with one another is a manifestation of the name Bari. In this sense, the name Bari becomes manifest in human beings, all animals and even trees and plants. For, the organs of all creatures were created in harmony with one another.

For instance, let us have a look at man: His tongue is in harmony with his mouth. If his tongue were longer, it would not fit into his mouth and life would be difficult for him. The harmony between the tongue and the mouth is a manifestation of the name Bari.

Just like the harmony between the tongue and the mouth, there is a harmony between the teeth and the mouth. The teeth are lined up in the mouth like pearls. If our teeth were longer and if they did not fit into the mouth, we would experience great difficulty. The creation of the teeth in harmony with the mouth is a manifestation of the name Bari.

The harmony between the eyebrows and the eyes is also a manifestation of this name. The eyebrows do not grow much and they do not prevent eyesight. Suppose that eyebrows grow like hair and cover the eyes; we can understand how desperately we need the manifestation of the name Bari.

The harmony between two eyes and two ears of man, the harmony between the length of the arm and the body, the harmony between fingers and toes, the equal length of legs, the harmony of the teeth with one another and the harmony of the internal organs with one another are all a manifestation of the name Bari. Thanks to the manifestation of this name, one leg is not longer than the other and all organs complement one another.

The name Bari, which becomes manifest in man at maximum level, also becomes manifest in animals. The fact that the eagle is not equipped with the wing of a fly, the fly is not equipped with the sting of a bee and that all creatures are equipped with the organs that are in compliance with their bodies are all a manifestation of the name Bari.

In this sense, the name Bari becomes manifest even in trees. The harmony between the trunk of the tree and the branches, the harmony between the branches and the fruits are all a manifestation of the name Bari. When you look at a tree, you may think that the leaves are placed randomly. However, it is not so. Every leaf that is placed on the branch is placed in such a way to prevent the sunlight of the other leaves the least. The placement of leaves in a tree also takes place with the manifestation of this name.

Since our duty is to know Allah and to read His name and attributes that become manifest in creatures and this duty is the greatest purpose of our creation, we need to praise Allah and glorify Him with His name Bari when we look at ourselves and other creatures and see that the organs are in harmony with one another.  

3- The one who creates all creatures in compliance with the general system and purposes in the universe.

Every creature was created in compliance with the system and purposes of the universe. 

For instance, let us think of man: all of his organs were created in accordance with the system and purposes of the universe. He has eyes that can see light, ears that can hear sounds, a nose that can smell, a tongue that can taste and speak, lungs that can breathe air and other organs that are in compliance with the system in the universe.   

Then, the same being created the eyes of man and light. The being that created sounds placed ears in man. The being that gave man the nose created the beings that he smells and the smell in those beings. The being that placed the tongue in man's mouth created the food items that he tastes and the speech he makes. To sum up, in this situation, man virtually speaks like this:  “Whoever created me also created all of the things related to me and the system in the universe. Whoever owns me owns the universe. And the name of that being is Al-Bari. ”

Everything in the universe was created in compliance with the purposes in the universe. For instance, there exists the purpose of the continuation of life in this realm. Every flower and tree was designed in a way to serve this purpose. They act like experts to maintain the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. A flower maintains that balance by producing oxygen throughout its life. The flower that breathes in carbon dioxide throughout its life breathes out oxygen when it dies. If carbon dioxide increases in the atmosphere, all plants accelerate their breathing.   

If it is claimed that the one that establishes this system is not Allah - God forbid - , who is Bari, we want to ask the following questions:

How do plants that have no consciousness work like chemical engineers?

What instruments do they use for measurements?

Why is the continuation of life so important for them?

Who placed the device that transforms carbon dioxide into oxygen in their bodies?

After seeing that the organs of man are in compliance with the system in the universe and the relationship of flowers and plants with the purposes in this realm, let us compare bees, butterflies, birds, fish and the other living and non-living beings with humans and flowers. Let us try to hear the following statement by looking at their creation and their organs that are in compliance with the system in the universe: 

“I was not planned alone when I was created. I was equipped with organs that are in compliance with the system in the universe. I was assigned duties that will serve those purposes. With my organs that are in compliance with this system and with my service to those purposes, I am a mirror of Allah’s name Bari. Look at this aspect of mine and say, 'O Bari! O Bari!' with your tongue as I say, 'O Bari! O Bari!' with my state and glorify your Lord.”
