Meaning of Hasbi Allaho Wa Naima Al Wakeel
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
What does " Hasbi Allaho Wa Naima Al Wakeel" mean and should it be recited to avert any clamity or misfortune thus seeking Allah`s help?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
" Hasbi Allaho Wa Naima Al Wakeel" is a Quranic term which means “Allah is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of Affairs.”
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imran verse 173: Men said to them: "A great army is gathering against you": and frightened them: but it (only) increased their faith. They (the believers) said: "Allah is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of Affairs."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.86 Narrated by Ibn Abbas
'Allah is Sufficient for us and He Is the Best Disposer of Affairs," was said by Abraham (a.s.) when he was thrown into the fire; and it was said by Prophet Muhammad (saws) when they (i.e. hypocrites) said, "A great army is gathering against you, therefore, fear them," but it only increased their faith and they said: "Allah is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of Affairs." (3.173)
Whenever a believer is faced with a seemingly insurmountable calamity, he should take the example of the noble Prophets Ibrahim (a.s.) and Mohamed (saws), and recite this blessed declaration which will keep his faith and trust firm in the All-Mighty Lord.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
