Al - 'Awwal
. The First One
. The Alpha
. The Pre-Existing
. The One who is the first, the beginning, the foremost
. The Prior-Existing One who existed before all of creation
. The One who is the cause of all the worlds
. The One is the beginning of every action, command or thought.
He is the First and the Last, and the Outward and the Inward; and He is Knower of all things. (The Quran 57:3)
And thy Sustainer knows all that their hearts conceal as well as all that they bring into the open: for He is God, save whom there is no deity. Unto Him all praise is due, at the beginning and at the end of time; and with Him rests all judgment; and unto Him shall you all be brought back.
(The Quran 28:69-70)
