Al Zahir – The Manifest

He who is evident because of the open proofs that prove His existence.
The evident one in the sight of His servants those believe in Him.
“Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of Night and Day, THERE ARE INDEED SIGNS FOR MEN OF UNDERSTAND-
ING. Men who celebrate the praises of Allah, stand- ing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and CON- TEMPLATE THE (WONDERS OF) CREATION IN THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH, (WITH THE THOUGHT): “OUR LORD! NOT FOR NAUGHT HAST THOU CREATED (ALL) THIS! GLORY TO
THEE! Give us salvation from the Penalty of the Fire.”
(3:190-191) The Holy Quran
From the root
z-h-r with the
classical Arabic
connotations:
to be visible,
manifest, obvious,
clear, distinct
to open,
to come out,

after being
concealed
to be conspicuous,
distinct

Allah  has manifest all of creation and who is manifest in all of creation.
His nature and existence is demonstrated in all of creation.
His essence and attributes are shown throughout all of creation.
He is above creation, yet who is made visible through creation.

He is Al Zahir, the Apparent One.
