  1. 1. Barakah, Mubaarak, T a b a a r a k By MuQeetAssalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuhu.Barakah. Mubaarak, Mabrook. Baarakallah. We use thesewords and also hear some Muslims using them.What do they mean? And what is meaning of the lesson-rich word “Tabaarak“?Let us try to understand and refresh ourselves,Inshaa’Allah.Tabaarak comes from the root Baraka (ba-ra-kaaf) whichmeans ‘a blessing’, ‘a bounty’.Some of the words coming from the same rootas Tabaarak are:1. Baaraka meaning ‘to bless’. So when yousay Baarakallah, it would mean ‘May Allah Bless You’.2. Barakah means Blessing. The plural formof Barakah is Barakaat, blessings.3. Mubaarak means Blessed. So when you say EidMubaarak, it would mean Blessed Eid or May Your Eid BeBlessed.So what is the meaning of the key word Tabaarak?Tabaarak means ‘to be hallowed’, ‘to be exalted’, and ‘tobe blessed’. (Intransitive verb). 1
  2. 2. www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.comThis word, Tabaarak, is used only for and of Allah, andnone else!The other word which is also exclusively used for Allahis Subhaanaka: Glory be to You, O Allah! Let me highlight some connotations and manifestations of Tabaarak: * Blessings are nurtured and generated. * All blessings, all goodness comes from Allah and Allah only. Allah is the Source of all blessings. * All benefits come from Allah and Allah only. Allah is the Source of all benefits. * Blessings are consistently and continuously made available by Allah alone. * Blessings are for all. Even to those who are ungrateful and rebellious towards Allah! * Blessings keep on increasing. * Blessings are infinite, and cannot be enumerated or counted. Tabaarak signifies the presence of divine blessings in some object, and an increase of those blessings. So now we know: only Allah has the right to blessings.Some fickle minded people ascribe blessings (for example)to monkeys, to cows, to statues, to black thread, tohumans, to graves, to stones, to flags, to scholars, toshuyook, and even to the dead! This, at best, can bedescribed as the height of stupidity!Allah is our Rabb, our Lord, our Creator, our Sustainer, ourNourisher, our Cherisher.To ascribe barakah to anyone other than Allah is to createa false Rabb, a false Lord…! 2
  3. 3. www.yassarnalquran.wordpress.comSo TabaarakAllah means BLESSED IS ALLAH,BLESSED BE ALLAH!The word “Tabaarak” appears nine times in the gloriousQur’an. Four are mentioned here: ‫ﺗَﺒَﺎرك اﻟﻠﱠﻪ ربﱡ اﻟﻌﺎﻟَﻤﯿﻦ‬ َ ِ َ ْ َ ُ َ َBlessed is Allah Lord of the worlds, Surah al Aaraaf: 5: 5 ‫ﻓﺘﺒَﺎرك اﻟﻠﱠﻪ أَﺣﺴﻦ اﻟﺨﺎﻟِﻘﯿﻦ‬ َ ِ َ ْ ُ َ ْ ُ َ َ ََSo Blessed is Allah, the Best of creators, Surah alMu’minoon: 23: 14 ِ َ ْ ِْ َ ِ َ َ ْ ‫ﺗَﺒَﺎرك اﺳﻢ رﺑِّﻚ ذي اﻟﺠﻼل واﻹﻛﺮام‬ ِ َ َ ُ ْ َ َBlessed is the name of your Lord, Owner of Majesty andHonor, Surah ar Rahmaan: 55: 78 ‫ﺗَﺒَﺎرك اﻟﱠﺬي ﺑِﯿَﺪه اﻟﻤﻠﻚ وھﻮ ﻋﻠَﻰ ﻛُﻞ ﺷﻲء ﻗﺪﻳﺮ‬ ٌ ِ َ ٍ ْ َ ِّ ٰ َ َ ُ َ ُ ْ ُ ْ ِ ِ ِ َ َBlessed is He in Whose Hand is dominion, and He is overall things competent, Surah al Mulk: 67: 1Here is one du’aa which we can say on a daily basis:We can say this while in Sajdah: ‫اﻟﻠﱠﮫﻢ ﻟَﻚ ﺳﺠﺪت وﺑِﻚ آﻣﻨﺖ وﻟَﻚ أَﺳﻠَﻤﺖ وأَﻧﺖ‬ َ ْ َ ُ ْ ْ َ َ ُ َْ َ َ ُ ْ َ َ َ ‫ُ ﱠ‬ ‫رﺑِّﻲ ﺳﺠﺪ وﺟﮫﻲ ﻟِﻠﱠﺬي ﺧﻠَﻘﻪ وﺻﻮره وﺷﻖ ﺳﻤﻌﻪ‬ ُ َ ْ َ ‫َ َ ُ َ َ ﱠَُ َ َ ﱠ‬ ِ ِ ْ َ َ َ َ َ ‫وﺑَﺼﺮه ﺗَﺒَﺎرك اﻟﻠﱠﻪ أَﺣﺴﻦ اﻟﺨﺎﻟِﻘﯿﻦ‬ َ ِ َ ْ ُ َ ْ ُ َ َ ََُ َ“O Allah!
