Al-Qādir, Al-Qadīr, Al-Muqtadir (The Able -The Omnipotent -The Supreme Determiner)

Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Whoever establishes the commands of Allah, Allah will support him and whoever uses whatever is in his power for the sake of Allah, Allah will subject to him what is in His Hand. Indeed, the entire universe is in the Hand of Allah Almighty for He is the Able and the  Omnipotent.

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:“While a man was walking through a barren land, he heard a voice coming out of a cloud saying: ‘Irrigate the garden of so-and-so.’ Thereupon, the cloud drifted in a certain direction and discharged its water over a rocky plain. The stream lets flowed into a channel. This man followed the channel until it reached a garden and he saw the owner of the garden standing in its center, working with his spade spreading the water. He asked him: ‘O servant of Allah, what is your name?’ He told him his name, which was the same that he heard from the cloud

The owner of the garden then asked him: ‘O servant of Allah, why did you ask about my name?’ He replied: ‘I heard a voice from the cloud which poured down this water saying: “Irrigate the garden of so-and-so.” I would like to know what you do with it.

He said:

‘Now since you have asked me, I will tell you. I estimate the produce of the garden and give one-third of it in charity, spend one-third on myself and my family, and invest one-third back into the garden.’”

[Narrated by Muslim]

{...Allah is not such that something can escape Him in the heavens or on earth. He is indeed All - Knowi ng, Most Capable.}

[Surat Fātir: 44]

{Do you not know that the dominion of the heavens and earth belongs to Allah? He punishes whom He wills and forgives whom He wills, and Allah is Most Capable of all things.}

[Surat al - Mā’idah: 40]

Our Lord, Exalted be He, is competent over all things, and nothing can escape His power or will. Unlike His creation, He, Exalted be He, never experiences inability or slackness.

Our Lord possesses complete power. With His power, He brought everything into existence, and with His power, He proportioned and perfected their creation, gives life and causes death, and then resurrects His servants for the recompense, rewarding those who do good and punishing the wrongdoers

Our Lord is the One Who

{...When He intends a thing, He says to it: “Be”, and it is.}

[Surat Yasīn: 82]

He is the Omnipotent and nothing can ever escape His power or will
