He is the All-Sufficient:


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

We cannot dispense with our Lord in terms of all our affairs, even for the blink of an eye. We need Him to protect us and grant us sufficiency and success. In one of the greatest Hadīths the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said about sufficienc
y given by our Lord:

“When a man goes out of his house and says: ‘Bismillāh tawakkaltu ‘alallāh wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billāh (In the Name of Allah, I rely upon A llah; there is no power nor strength except through Allah)’, thereupon it will be said to him: ‘You are guided, defended, and protected.’The devils will go far from him and another devil will say: ‘How can you deal with a man who has been guided, defended, and protected?’”

[Narrated by Abu Dāwūd; Sahīh (authentic)]

The believer often implores his Lord and invokes Him by His beautiful names asking Him for protection and steadfastness. He alone can grant us sufficiency and protection.

Whenever the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) went to bed, he would say:

“Al- hamdulillāh i all adhi at‘amana wa saqāna wa kafāna wa āwāna fa kam mimman la kāfiya lahu wa la mu’wi (Praise be to Allah Who gave us food and drink, provided for us sufficiency, and gave us shelter, for there are many who have none to provide for them or to give them shelt er).
