Al-Wakīl (The Disposer of affairs) -Exalted be He

Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Let us pause a little and ponder the verse that says:

{And rely upon the Ever- Living Who does not die, and glorify Him with His praise. Sufficient is He with t h e sins of His servants, All - Aware.}

[Surat al - Furqān: 58]

This is a call from the King, the Vanquisher, to every believing man and woman. A call to everyone who is sick, distressed, or under debt. A call to everyone who is fearful or hesitant!

He informs us that He is the Disposer of affairs and the One Able to do all things. He can turn all your problems into solutions, your pains into wellness and soundness, your dreams into reality, your fears into security, and your tears into smiles!

I disown my power and strength, and stand before my Lord with utmost humility! Rid your soul of its weakness, anxiety, and reluctance and let it relish comfort under the shades of Allah, the Disposer of affairs, in the those lines as we reflect upon this noble name.Allah Almighty says:

{And He is Disposer of all things.}

[Surat al - An‘ām: 102]

The scholars said: The Disposer of affairs is the One in charge of managing the affairs of His creation by His knowledge, perfect power, and all-inclusive wisdom.

He is the One Who undertakes to provide for His servants,take care of their interests, manage their affairs, and guide them to what is beneficial and what is harmful to them in this life and the in Hereafter.

This is the general meaning of managing of affairs, which applies to all creation.

{Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is Disposer of all affairs.}

[Surat az-Zumar: 62]

But there is a special meaning for Disposer, which specifically applies to the pious servants of Allah who obey and love Him. He facilitates ease for them, keeps them away from hardships, and take charge of their affairs.

Hence, Allah Almighty commanded His Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) and the whole Ummah to rely upon Him. He says:

{And rely upon the Ever-Living who does not die.}

[Surat al - Furqān: 58]

He singles them out with His love, in this verse:

{Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him].}

[Surat Āl - ‘Imrān: 159]

{And rely upon the Ever - Living who does not die.}

[Sur a t al - Furqān: 58]

He singles them out with His love, in this verse:

{Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him].}

[Surat Āl - ‘Imrān: 159]

Reliance upon Allah is a sign of belief and piety and a trait of the believers. It is one of the best degrees of attachment to the most beautiful names of our Lord.
