The LivingAllah has the attribute of Life; He is the Living (al-hayy). He is perfect. He is always living and will never die. He does not sleep either. Everything is easy for Him. He never gets tired, so He never needs to rest.
The HearingAllah has the attribute of Hearing; He is the Hearer (al-sami’). He does not hear with a body part the way created things do. Remember He is not like anything in His creation. He hears everything: loud sounds, quite sounds, secrets, bad words, colors, shapes, and everything there is. Let’s be careful of what we say. Allah does not like to hear evil things from us like lies and talking back to our parents.
Shapes, sounds, good acts, bad acts, small things, large things – Allah sees and hears it all.
