As-Samad (The Eternal Refuge)


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

If you are in need, turn to the Eternal Refuge. If you are in a humble and humiliating position, knock on the door of the Eternal Refuge. If weakness creeps into your body, seek strength from the Eternal Refuge.

Indeed, He is the One God and the Refuge upon Whom all creatures depend.

He is the owner of the beautiful names and sublime attributes, and He is the companion of those who feel lonely. 

Allah’s name “As -Samad” seldom occurs and is rarely mentioned, yet it enjoys special magnificence.

Allah Almighty says:

{Say: “He is Allah, the Only One.Allah, the Eternal Refuge.He has not begotten and has not been begotten.And there is none like unto Him.”}

[Surat al -Ikhlās: 1-4]

It is our Lord upon whom all creatures, humans and jinn, depend. Indeed, the entire world and all that it contains turn to Him for the fulfillment of desires and take refuge in Him from disasters. 

Our Lord is the Master with perfect glory, honor, majesty, forbearance, and self-sufficiency. These attributes belong to the Almighty Lord alone. 

Our Lord has no hollow and He does not eat or drink, and He provides others with food. He stands in no need for others, yet all else do need Him. There is none like Him, and He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing.
