Anyone who learns this name of Allah and understands it will never feel alone – inshaAllah. Al-Wali comes from the 3 letter root: و- ل-ي. The root of the word means to be very close, without any barrier. Al Wali means to be a friend and a helper; to defend and to guard. 𝐀𝐥-𝐆𝐡𝐚𝐳𝐚𝐥𝐢 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐚𝐥-𝐖𝐚𝐥𝐢 𝐢𝐬 𝐚𝐥𝐬𝐨 “𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐨𝐫”.
