"Vision does not comprehend Him, while He comprehends all vision, and He knows the subtleties, and He is the Aware" (Quran, 6:103).
Al-Khabeer is one of the Attributes of Allah, and it means: the One Who knows everything and from whose knowledge nothing at all escapes.
He knows the essence of everything and is acquainted with the truth in its regard. Al-Khabeer is familiar with the most intricate matters; He knows the ailment and its remedy.
Al-Khabeer knows the innermost of everything; nothing takes place in His domain without His knowledge; no atom moves nor stands still, nor is a soul upset or eased, except that He knows about it. He is the One from whose knowledge nothing in the earth or in the heavens is hidden; nothing moves in the heavens or in the earth except that He knows about its final resting point or destination.
Scholars have distinguished between al-Khabeer and al-`Aleem. The first connotes knowledge, but when knowledge is applied to hidden matters, it is then called khibra, and the One Who knows it is called al-Khabeer.
The Almighty has said, "What?! Do you think that you will be left alone while Allah has not yet ascertained those of you who have struggled hard and have not taken anyone as an adherent besides Allah and His Prophet and the believers?! Allah is Aware of all what you do" (Quran, 9:16).
Anyone who has a certain need about which he likes to ask Allah for something should recite the verse saying "Does He not know, the One Who created?! He knows the subtleties, and He is the Aware" (Quran, 67:14) repeatedly till he falls asleep.
