Pearl of Wisdom

about the verse: It is We who have dispensed among them their livelihood, 'Allah, the Exalted, told us that employment is one of the means of people's livelihood. He, in His wisdom, diversified their aspirations, motivations, and other states. Thus, He made man's employment of one another one of the means of people's livelihood ... If every one of us was forced to build for himself, make his own furniture, and produce everything himself... the world's conditions would not be bearable and people would not be able to endure them, and would find them impossible. But he ensured its management by diversifying their aspirations so that everyone performs for others that which is Employment compatible with his own capacity, in order for some of them to be served by others and for their conditions to be sound.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Wasa'il al-Shi'a, v. 13, p. 244, no. 3

"... so that Allah may forgive your past faults and your faults to come, to complete His favor unto you, and to guide you on the right path" (Qur’an, 48:2).

Linguistically, taqdeem, the root word of this Attribute, means advancing, promoting, or preferring;

"al- Muqaddim" means: the One Who presents things and places them in their right place.
Whoever deserves to be advanced, preferred or favored over others, the Almighty, al-Muqaddim, advances his rank or status. And He advances the living, each according to his sincerity of worshipping Him, protecting them against falling into disobedience of Him.

Al-Muqaddim since the beginning of time advanced those whom He loves and made them happy through accurate comprehension and sound judgment. He prefers those who know over those who do not. He opens the gates of true conviction (iman) for everyone. He prefers humans over all others, making them Imams. And He advances, prefers, favors scholars over ignorant folks, making the first party like stars guiding others to righteousness.

He has advanced the Messenger of Allah from the very beginning and will advance him at the very end, in the Hereafter. He took a covenant from all those whom He sent into this world that: "... when a Messenger comes to you verifying that which is with you, you must believe in him, and you must support him" (Qur’an, 3:81). He also advanced him on Laylatul-Isra', the Night Journey. Muhammad led all other Prophets in congregational prayers.

The Holy Qur’an states the following: "Do not dispute in My presence, and indeed I warned you beforehand" (Qur’an, 50:28). Muhammad, the most honored of all prophets, as Muslims regard him, enjoys a status that tops all those of other "Ulul-`Azm" prophets , peace be upon all of them. Next in status are awliya', the friends of Allah, whose status is less only than that of the prophets.

Al-Muqaddim, therefore, advances whoever He pleases on account of one's piety and frequency of returning to Him, to His path, making them truthful; He responds favorably to their pleas. And al-Muqaddim advances the living who worship Him in ranks (in this life as well as in the one to come), protecting them against disobeying or displeasing Him.
