38. Al-Hafeezh
The Preserver

Al Hafeezh is derived from the root word hifzh, which means to safeguard something or someone. A book is called hafeezh because it safeguards records and statements from being lost. Al Hafeezh maintains the existence of everything that exists. He safeguards contradictory elements against overwhelming one another. This is because He knows them in all its quantities and their delicate detail. Al Hafeezh is a meaning that is derived from knowing and is the opposite of oversight or forgetfulness. Allah’s knowledge is never altered by oversight or negligence. AL Hafeezh also safeguards things against loss.
