Full Meaning of Hattiyy

Hattiyy means someone who guides people toward as-Sirat al-Mustaqeem (the Straight Path), and it is one of the 99 Attributes of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). Ibn Al-Athir Al-Jazri, the great Islamic scholar of Saladin’s time, describes the Attribute as describing this aspect of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala): “He is the one who has given His servants the ability to see, and has shown them the way toward knowing Him, until they bore witness that He is their God, and He has guided every creation toward whatever it needs to exist and survive.”

Whoever Allah sends astray – there is no guide for him. And He leaves them in their transgression, wandering blindly. {7:186}

And in this way We have assigned to every prophet an enemy from among the criminals. And your Lord is enough for you as a guide and supporter. {25:31}
