76. Al Baatin
Al Baatin means the one who is obscured from the eyes of his creation due to the intensity of His appearance; the Hidden One due to his essence that defines the minds and the intellect. Allah is Zhahir through sufficiency and He is Baatin through objectivity. He is Zhahir due to His bounties and He is Al Baatin through His mercy. He is the apparent one who subdues everything and the hidden one who knows the truth about everything. Allah’s existence is both manifest and hidden. He is apparent because the signs of His existence are visible even to the blind, but His essence remains hidden.
