The Bestower of Life,  The Giver of Life,  The Reviver

The One who created life. The One who makes all things live. The One who decides what will be vitalized and brought to life.

The One, and only One, who can bring something to life.

The One who brings the heart to life. The One who revives and grants wholeness, even to the spiritually dead.

From the root h-y-y which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to live, to be living
to become apparent, distinct
to animate, to revive
to vitalize, to call into being
to be whole, sound
to call, summon, invite, hasten

This name is used in the Qur'ān. For example, see 41:39

The name al-Hayy (ever-living) is also from this same h-y-y root.

The names Mumīt (the life-taker) and Muhyī (the life-giver) are opposites.

(Also written as al-muhyi, al-muhyee, al-muhiyy, al-muhyii, the Life Giver: ya muhyi, ya muhyee, ya muhiyy)
