“Allah is sufficient for me…”

“HasbiyaAllah la illah illah huwa ‘alayhe tawakaltu wa huwa rub el ‘arsh al atheem.”

This doua comes from the morning athkaar (words of remembrance which we are encouraged to recite every day).  It starts with the very powerful and all-inclusive statement “Allah is sufficient for me.” Allah and Allah alone is sufficient for me. Allah, not my job, not my career, not my skills, not my friends, not my family, not my spouse, not my kids, and not even my parents…Allah, and Allah alone is sufficient for me. Sufficient in what regards? Since nothing is specified here, then it means with regards to everything! Allah is the care taker, the Provider, the Protector, the Healer of everything that I need.

“There is none worthy of worship but Him.” There is none worthy of my time, my attention, my focus, my dedication, and my commitment, but Allah. “I have placed my trust in Him, He is Lord of the Majestic Throne.” I have placed my trust, hopes, aspirations, dreams in Him for He is the Lord of the Majestic Throne.
