Al Muqaddim – The Foremost

He who brings forward whatever He wills.
Allah, the ADVANCER advances some things over others in existence, and effects over causes; He advances one move ahead of another, one nation ahead of another and centuries ahead of centuries.
“And if Allah were to impose blame on the people for their wrongdoing, He would not have left upon the earth any creature, but He defers them for a specified term. And when their term has come, they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede [it].”
(16:61) The Holy Quran
From the root
