Five Things That Only Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’ala has Exclusive Knowledge Of

(1) Knowledge of the Hour (Qiyamah)

The actual moment (hour/day/year) of Qiyamah is exclusively known to Allah Ta’ala alone. People asked Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, when is Qiyamah? To which he replied : “The one who is asked knows not more than the one who is asking”. [Hadith-e-Jibra’eel]

(2)  Knowledge of the time Allah will send rain

The knowledge of rainfall lies with Allah Ta’ala alone. No one knows when it will rain but Allah Ta’ala. The time of rain, amount of rain and location of where rain will fall, is all determined by Allah Ta’ala.  It is only Allah Ta’ala that sends down rain and spreads His Mercy.

(3)  Knowledge of what is in the wombs

Only Allah Ta’ala alone has all the knowledge of what is contained in the wombs of mothers. Today, science has invented ultrasound equipment that could possibly ‘predict’ the gender of a foetus. However, despite these technological advancements, one cannot determine the precise features of an unborn child (eye colour, hair type), nor can one predict whether this soul will be a Mu’min (believer) or a Kaafir(disbeliever), nor can one predict the sustenance that will be meted out to this yet to be born baby. Beyond gender predictions, can the lifespan of this soul be predicted?

(4)  Knowledge of what one will gain tomorrow

The knowledge of Rizq (sustenance) lies solely with Allah Ta’ala. None of us knows exactly how much we will earn tomorrow or whether one will have life to even see the next day. What could be and what could have been, is again known uniquely to Allah alone.

(5)  Knowledge of the land in which one will die

No soul knows in which land, death will overtake them. A person may be in one country today, unbeknown that death awaits him in another country tomorrow.
