Hasbi Allahu Wa Ne’mal Wakil!

9 02 2008
 “Hasbi Allahu wa ne’mal wakil.”

“Allah is sufficient for me and is the best trustee of affairs.”

 Those (i.e. believers) unto whom the people (hypocrites) said, “Verily, the people (pagans) have gathered against you (a great army), therefore, fear them.” But it (only) increased them in Faith, and they said: HasbunAllah wa Ni’mal Wakil“:Allâh (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).” (173) So they returned with Grace and Bounty from Allâh. No harm touched them; and they followed the good Pleasure of Allâh. And Allâh is the Owner of Great Bounty. (174) It is only Shaitân (Satan) that suggests to you the fear of his Auliyâ’ [supporters and friends ,so fear them not, but fear Me, if you are (true) believers.

(English translation of the Qur’an 3:172-175)
Allahu Akbar!

Allahu akbar!

Beautiful! Love the phrase, especially how reciting it doubles as dua and zikir.

*Assalamu’alaikum Umm Yusuf, long time no read, 🙂

Assalamu alaykum,

Great post, thanks for sharing.

Brother Syed: Hasbi Allahu with an ‘i’ means Allah is sufficient for ‘me’. And Hasbun Allah with the ‘nu’ means Allah is sufficient for ‘us’.
Basically the ‘i’ at the end of a noun or word in Arabi (that sounds like e) means ‘me’ or ‘my’. And the ‘na’ in Arabi and the end of a word means ‘we’ or ‘us’.

I hope this explanation is clear.
