- Allah (swt) calls Himself Al-Aleem – The All-Knowing; The Ever-Knowing; The Omniscient.
- Allah’s (swt) knowledge cannot be compared to any other knowledge in creation. Allah’s (swt) Ilm is neither acquired through learning nor followed by ignorance. As Musa (as) said to Firawn: “My Lord is neither unaware nor He forgets.” (Ta-Ha 20:52)
- Nothing in the heavens or on the earth escapes His knowledge. Al-Aleem says: “And with Him are the keys of the Ghaib (all that is hidden), none knows them but He.” (Al-Anam 6:59)
