al-Wāsi' audio caligraphy

The All-Embracing,  The All-Sufficient,  The All-Pervading,  The Boundless

The One whose expansive essence holds and embraces all of creation.

The One who is vast without limit. The One of limitless capacity and abundance.

The One who is ample-giving, all-embracing and all-pervading.

The One whose power, knowledge, mercy and generosity are boundless.

From the root w-s-' which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to be sufficient in capacity or size, wide, spacious
to be ample, plentiful, bountiful, rich
to comprehend, embrace, include, take in, pervade

This name is used in the Qur'ān. For example, see 2:115

(Also written as al-wasi, al-waasi, al-vasi, al-vaasi, the All-Embracing: ya wasi, ya waasi )
