Pearl of Wisdom

Ali b. Hassan al-Wasiti, known as al-'Amsh, narrated, 'I brought an item to him from Isfahan made of silver, in order to present it to my master Abu Ja'far [al-Jawad]. When the people left his company after he had answered all their questions, he stood up and left. I followed him and met a helper of his from whom I requested to seek permission to see Abu Ja'far. I entered and saluted him, and he returned my salutation with signs of dislike on his face. He did not come to sit down, so I approached him and emptied all that was in my sleeve before him. He looked at me in anger, then he looked to the right and left and said, 'Allah has not created me for this, what has play got to do with me?' I asked him to forgive me. He forgave me and then I took the things and left.'

Imam Muhammad ibn Ali al-Taqi [as]

"O people! You are the ones who stand in need of Allah, while Allah is the self-Sufficient, the Praised One" (Quran, 35:15).

The root word of "al-Hameed" is hamd which means: praise, something more general than thanking. Al-Hameed is also al-Mamood, the Praised One.

Allah is al-Hameed due to praising His own Self since time immemorial, and also due to His servants praising Him. His qualities, such as His being Glorified and Exalted, are due to the fact that those who mention His Attribute glorify and exalt it.

Hamd in this context means enumerating or the attempt to enumerate the qualities of perfection conceived by those who praise Him. Al-Hameed grants you success and compliments you for it; He wipes out your sins and does not embarrass you by exposing them. He is Praised due to His merits. One whose beliefs, conduct, speech and action are praiseworthy is called hameed.

Such a description fits only the Messenger of Allah and those whose ranks are close to his from among Allah's prophets as well as others such as the friends of Allah, and the scholars. Each one of these is hameed with regard to his beliefs, conduct, deeds and statements.
