“When ‘Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim’ [In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful] was revealed, the clouds gave way by moving to the East, the winds ceased blowing, the oceans became calm, the creatures prepared themselves to listen, the shayatin were pelted [with fire from the heavens] and Allah, swearing an oath by His honour, declared: ‘Anyone who says this name of mine upon anything, I will surely impart barakah in that thing.'”
