Al-Hasīb (The Ever-Reckoner)


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Ja‘far al-Sādiq (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:“I wonder how a person may ever be fearful and not flee to the verse that says:

{Allah is sufficient for us, and He is the best Disposer of affairs.}

[Surat ĀI - ‘ Imrān: 173]

I heard Allah say thereafter:

{So they returned with favor from Allah and bounty, no harm having touched them.}

[Surat Ᾱ l - ‘Imrān: 174]

And I wonder how a person may be distressed and not flee to the verse that says:

{There is no god but You; Glorified are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.}

[Surat al - Anbiyā’: 87]

I heard Allah say thereafter:

{So We responded to him and saved him from the distress. And thus do We save the believers.}

[Surat al - Anbiyā’: 88]

And I wonder how a person may be subject to a cunning plot and not flee to the verse that says

:{And I entrust my affair to Allah. Indeed, Allah is All-Seeing of [His] slaves.}

[Surat Ghāfir: 44]

as I heard Allah say thereafter:

{So Allah protected him from the evils they plotted.}

[Surat Ghāfir: 45]

And I wonder how a person may be distressed and not flee to the verse that says:

{There is no god but You; Glorified are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.}

[Surat al - Anbiyā’: 87]

I heard Allah say thereafter:

{So We responded to him and saved him from the distress. And thus do We save the believers.}

[Surat al - Anbiyā’: 88]

And I wonder how a person may be subject to a cunning plot and not flee to the verse that says:

{And I entrust my affair to Allah. Indeed, Allah is All - Seeing of [His] slaves.}

[Surat Ghāfir: 44]

as I heard Allah say thereafter:

{So Allah protected him from the evils they plotted.}

[Surat Ghāfir: 45]”

If you become helpless and find no way and no hope, having lost all the means, then say: Allah is Sufficient for me, and He is the best Disposer of affairs!

If life becomes tough and stressful for you and you fall into distress, then call out: Allah is Sufficient for me, and He is the best Disposer of affairs! Soon Allah’s support, help, and relief will come to you!

{So they returned with favor from Allah and bounty, no harm having touched them.}

[Surat Ᾱ l - ‘Imrān: 174]

Allah Almighty introduces Himself to His servants as the One Sufficient for them. He says:

{And Allah suffice s as Ever - Reckoner.}

[Sur a t an - Nisā’: 6]

He also says:

{Surely Allah has been Ever - Reckoner over everything.}

[Surat an - Nisā’: 86]

{So they returned with favor from Allah and bounty, no harm having touched them.}

[Surat Ᾱ l - ‘Imrān: 174]

Allah Almighty introduces Himself to His servants as the One Sufficient for them. He says:

{And Allah suffices as Ever - Reckoner.}

[Surat an - Nisā’: 6]

He also says:

{Surely Allah has been Ever - Reckoner over everything.}

[Surat an - Nisā’: 86]

Allah Almighty is the Ever-Reckoner.

Our Lord is Sufficient for all His servants in everything they need, be it bringing benefit or warding off harm.
