What does “may Allah sanctify his secret” mean?


As salaam alaykum,

I don’t understand this phrase. What is meant by “the secret” if you can give me general idea of its parameters at least? What am I asking be sanctified?

And what does saying Ha Miiim in Hizb Al- Nasr do for one? Can it be said as a zikr in its own, and if so, to what purpose?

Fi Amanillah.


Alaykum Salam,

It is an affirmation of respect for the content referred to in such verses as ‘truly Allah knows the contents of breasts’ with specific relation to the righteous of the Umma. By the same token it is a prayer for its principal ingredient namely sincerity. As for the Disjointed Letters in Qur’an they stand for many blessed meanings such as the Divine and Prophetic or angelic names, and more. Allah knows best.
